Bio

Since making his one-day international debut at the start of January 2013, fast bowler Mohammad Shami has cemented himself in the India line-up.

Coming up through the domestic ranks, Shami had a reasonable debut season in 2010-11 but it wasn’t until 2012-13 when he collected 28 wickets for Bengal in the Ranji Trophy season that he was put in line for national selection.

The quick made a Test debut to remember against West Indies in late 2013, picking up nine wickets for the match. It was followed by reasonable outings in South Africa and New Zealand and while wickets were harder to come during the mid-2014 tour of England, Shami retained his spot in the national ODI squad.

Shami has two five-wicket hauls in Test cricket.
