Mohammed Shami turned into a Mentor for Shaheen Shah Afridi

Pacer Mohammed Shami has been a part of Indian cricket for a long time. Shami has been practicing in the nets since he joined the Indian team to replace Jasprit Bumrah for the T20 World Cup. Before India’s first game of the tournament, which was against Pakistan, Shami was seen giving Pakistani pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi some advice. A lot of fans have shared the picture on social media.

Shami was only picked to be on the Indian T20 World Cup team as a backup player initially, but when Bumrah got hurt, he added him to the main roster of 15 players. With his experience, Shami will lead India’s bowling attack at the T20 World Cup in Australia. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will join him.

Given how much experience Shami has, both the Indian team and the younger members of the team want to use his services and learn from him. Pakistani seamers like Shaheen also want to learn from the pacemaker.

In an online photo, Shami gave Shaheen some advice while pretending to be a left-hander. Many fans on social media were touched by the fact that the India pacer helped his Pakistani counterpart even though the two teams are rivals and will be playing against each other in a few days.

Regarding getting ready for the T20 World Cup, India’s first warm-up game is against Australia. Mohammed Shami only bowled one over during the game, and it was the last one.

In that over, Shami just took three wickets, which helped India win the game by six runs. Australia lost four wickets in the last four balls of the match, and Shami took three of them. Shami’s hat trick couldn’t do because one of them was a run-out.
