Indian bowler Mohammed Shami created a new record in the India-New Zealand ICC World Test Championship final at The Ageas Bowl ground in Southampton. In the first innings of the match, New Zealand’s team was out for 249 runs and the biggest contribution was Mohammed Shami, with which this Indian pacer has created a new history by breaking a 38-year-old Indian record.
Mohammed Shami took 4 wickets for 76 runs, with which he broke the 38-year-old record of Mohinder Amarnath. This figure is the record for the best performance by an Indian bowler in the final of any ICC Championship. Former great all-rounder Mohinder Amarnath took 3 for 12 against West Indies in the final of the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Shami has now broken that record.
Team India’s 30-year-old pacer Mohammed Shami, playing the 51st match of his Test career, has so far taken 184 wickets in Test cricket. His best performance in an innings of Test cricket has been 6 for 56. Whereas his best performance in a Test match has been 9 for 118 runs.
