The Amroha district administration announced on Friday that they will be building a small stadium with sporting facilities in Mohammed Shami’s hometown of Sahaspur Alinagar in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
The District Magistrate, Rajesh Tyagi, led a team to Sahaspur Alinagar to scope out potential sites to construct the little stadium. Shami on Wednesday collected seven wickets for 57 in the first Men’s World Cup Cricket semi-final match vs New Zealand, propelling India to reach the final. In addition to becoming the first Indian bowler to take seven wickets in an ODI World Cup match, Shami has claimed the most wickets (23) in this tournament. He was so outstanding that the game’s MVP award also went to him.
Aunjaneya Kumar Singh, the Moradabad Divisional Commissioner, said a proposal for the micro stadium in Shami’s village had been filed to the state government. Twenty “mini stadiums” are planned to be built throughout the various districts of UP. Shami’s hometown of Amroha has been chosen to host one of them. The young people of forward look forward to the quick bowler, so Singh has promised to throw a party in his honor once he returns.
We suggest that the government construct a modest stadium near Mohammed Shami’s hometown. A representative in Amroha has verified the presence of a community fitness center.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted on X, “Today’s Semi-Final has become even more spectacular owing to great individual performances too,” praising Shami for her effort in the match. Mohammed Shami’s bowling performance in this game and during the World Cup will be talked about for years by cricket fans. A hearty congrats to you, Shami!
Shami has been a standout performer despite missing the opening few ICC World Cup 2023 matches due to injury.
One of the many reasons for Shami’s dominance is his ability to shut down left-handed batters. Shami has been a nightmare for batters of all sexes, particularly lefties. Fifty-two batters Shami has faced in the World Cup this year are left-handed.
Only 32 runs have been scored against him so far. Shami has taken 23 wickets in six games, with a strike rate of 10.91 and an average of 9.13, with a best of 7/57. He now holds the record for most wickets taken in the tournament.
Seven New Zealand players were ordered back to the dressing room after he bowled them in the semifinal match. Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Tim Southee, and Lockie Ferguson were all let go by him. Sahmi will be in the limelight on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad for the high-stakes World Cup 2023 final between India and Australia. Australia has won this tournament five times in a row.
With Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and two fast bowling all-rounders, Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur, already chosen for India’s World Cup 2023 squad, there was little place for the India pacer.
The president of the Rashtriya Lok Dal and an Opposition member of parliament, Jayant Singh, made the following statement on X on Friday night: “I am keen to provide my MPLAD funds to aid in the construction of a sports facility in the village of Mohammed Shami.”
