PROFILE

Mohammed Shami, the Uttar Pradesh-born Bengal pacer who can swing both the old and the new ball, is among the rare breed of Indian bowlers who can consistently bowl at 140kph. In his maiden domestic season in 2010, he was more of a short format bowler, picking up 14 wickets from eight matches in the domestic T20 tournament. However, a terrific Ranji Trophy season in 2012-13, where he picked up 28 wickets from five matches including two ten-wicket hauls, led to him being fast-tracked into the national squad although he had played very little first-class cricket. Shami made his One-Day International debut against Pakistan in January 2013 and impressed immediately with a spell of 9-4-23-1. He had a dream Test debut later that year against the visiting West Indies side, picking up nine wickets for 118 runs, the most by an Indian pacer on debut, but wayward bowling on occasions has hampered his progress. Shami played for Kolkata Knight Riders for three seasons starting 2011, before Delhi Daredevils picked him up in 2014.
