Mohammed Shami is proud to represent the Indian bowling unit in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which he believes is one of the best in the world. The Bengal bowler picked up 17 wickets in the last edition but had a poor showing against Australia in the semis which India eventually lost. But this year, there is more quality around him thanks to the emergence of Jasprit Bumrah. The duo makes up for s powerful combination capable of striking at will. Shami was involved in a bitter personal feud with his wife which threatened to stall his career but has emerged out well from that. Team India at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Squad, Player Profiles of India National Cricket Team for CWC19

In 61 ODI games, Mohammed Shami has 110 wickets at an average of 25.83 with 4/35 his best bowling figures. He had a decent IPL where he was the leading wicket-taker for his new team Kings XI Punjab. At the start of the year, Shami picked up 9 wickets in four games against New Zealand in their backyard which convinced Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to pick him for the all-important competition in England. He has worked on his fitness after being left out of the ODI team in the last two years. Schedule of Team India at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: List of Indian Team’s Matches, Time Table, Date, Venue and Squad Details.

Mohammed Shami is known to the ball consistently between 140-145 kmph mark and in the overcast conditions of England prevalent at this time, he could really wreak havoc on the opposition. He is a kind of rhythm bowler that needs success at the start of his spell and can almost become an unplayable post that.
