Mohammed Shami's father, a fast-bowler-turned-farmer from a rural hamlet in Uttar Pradesh, saw a spark in just one of his five children (all aspiring fast bowlers) and took him to a famous coach in Moradabad, the nearest city to their village. He was renowned as a diligent worker with great stamina who was trained like a workhorse under Badruddin Siddique's careful supervision.
Shami was encouraged by his coach to go to Kolkata after being snubbed from the U-19 selections owing to suspected politically corrupt selections. He was apprenticed to Debabrata Das to the point of residing under his home, and he almost made it to the Bengal U-22 side.
Shami was identified as a unique talent during a specially arranged net session supervised by Sourav Ganguly, and after a long climb through the ranks, he was given the opportunity to represent Bengal at the Ranji level. Shami was picked for the West Indies A trip in 2012 after a solid series of domestic performances, when he excelled with his pace and lateral movement on very flat fields with little or no help for fast bowlers.
Shami gradually gained national recognition and made his ODI debut in early 2013. Slowly but steadily, he began to make important contributions, and his ability to reverse/contrast swing the old white ball made him a vital addition to the limited-overs side, allowing him to become the second-fastest Indian to 50 ODI wickets. In the 2015 World Cup, he established his value by taking 17 wickets and finishing as one of the tournament's top wicket-takers. He had played the World Cup despite a knee ailment; it was later found.
With the exception of the semi-final defeat to Australia, he was India's most economical bowler in the tournament, bowling at a time when the power-play regulations were skewed against the batters. Shami debuted with the red cherry in the home series against the West Indies, also known as Sachin Tendulkar's farewell series. He made an instant impression in India with his ability to bowl seam-up deliveries, move the ball off the seam, and reverse-swing the SG ball, taking 9 wickets on debut against the West Indies.
He enjoyed good away tours in New Zealand and South Africa, but failed in England, where his ability to scrape the ball off the pitch was supposed to help him. However, in less favourable circumstances for bowling in Australia, he picked up 15 wickets in three Tests before succumbing to injury once more. Shami has shown to be a master of ball management and performance in unfavourable conditions, thanks to his limited but useful ability to move the fresh ball off the deck and reverse the old ball in the air.
With experience on his side, he has the potential to improve his game and establish himself as a reliable player in any situation. In addition to his SG skills, he has demonstrated decent control on the Dukes and the Kookaburra ball and has completed the mysterious job of reversing the Kookaburra in Australia. With a slew of international tours on the horizon, a healthier and stronger Shami is poised to light up the stage and cement his place among the fast-bowling greats.
Mohammed Shami has just a few opportunities as a member of his local team, the Kolkata Knight Riders. In 2014, the Delhi Daredevils purchased him for Rs. 4.25 crore after his excellent international debut. In the Indian Premier League, Shami has been on the pricey side with the ball, and injuries haven't helped matters. His 5-year relationship with Delhi came to an end when the franchise chose to release him due to his IPL economy rate of more than 9. Shami was signed by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 4.40 crore at the 2019 IPL auctions. Shami, who has found his mojo in white-ball cricket, will be a key component in KXIP's quest for their first IPL victory.
