South Africa vs. India: After taking 200 Test wickets for India, pacer Mohammed Shami received widespread acclaim from all corners of the cricketing world.
South Africa vs. India, Mohmmed Shami became the first Indian bowler to reach 200 Test wickets. He also became only the fifth Indian bowler to achieve the feat. Shami was also the first Indian bowler to achieve the feat in the shortest amount of time (in terms of balls bowled). Ravichandran Ashwin, Kapil Dev, and Ravindra Jadeja were among the pacers who took the fewest balls for their 200 Test victims. The Indian fast bowlers had a superb day, putting India in a dominating position going into the fourth day.
Shami’s achievement was lauded by cricketers from all over the world, including former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria.
Kaneria praised the Indian fast bowler in a video, praising his excellent lines and lengths for bringing down the South African batting line-up.
“South Africa’s batting line-up was led by Mohammed Shami, who was the team’s leading destroyer. Shami’s ball-handling skills were outstanding. On a Centurion wicket, the hitters were disturbed by the way he bowled, sticking to his lines and lengths and targeting specific angles and targets. It was simply fantastic. Shami’s bowling was utterly rocking, and the hosts had no answer for it “he stated
In addition to Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur also made significant contributions.
India leads by 146 runs on Day 4 and has nine wickets in hand. After Mayank Agarwal was removed before Stumps the day before, KL Rahul and Shardul Thakur will take the crease.
