Bowler Mohammad Shami’s inexplicable spell helped India to cease the series by 4-1 and this is the reason that the man got awarded with the ‘Man Of Series’ trophy. Not just this, he also got praises from head coach Ravi Shastri.
Shastri said in a recent interview: “If there is one man I have to single out over the last five months or so, it’s Mohammad Shami, he got a kick up the backside after failing the yo-yo test. He went back, did the hard yards, came back fit and has not broken down since. He has been outstanding, that too across all formats.”
He also unveiled detail of the conversation that went between Shami and Bharat Arun before the match, he said: “In the morning, he was telling [bowling coach] Bharat Arun that Anderson’s seam position is like this….another bowler’s is like that. Arun told him ‘look at your seam presentation. People around the world are taking notice of you, and don’t try to imitate anyone’.”
He, then went ahead to praise Hardik Pandya and Ambati Rayudu who played a pivotal role in helping the Indian side reach the winning bank, he said: “Hardik is a natural talent and a match-winner, those 20-30 runs with the bat made the difference. Rayudu played really well today. This was the toughest of all the five matches. From 18/4 to going on to win the game. He batted like a millionaire in the last game and he was told that. The way he came out to today was commendable.”
