Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami is in a good rhythm after a great performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) so that he can prepare for the big Test series against Australia without any pressure. Shami had a better IPL season in which he took 20 wickets for Kings XI Punjab. It also included a superb defense of five runs in a ‘Double Super Over’ match against Mumbai Indians. Shami told BCCI.com on Saturday that my performance for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL gave me a lot of confidence and got me in the right position.

Shami feels that a good performance in the IPL removed the pressure on him. He said that the biggest advantage is that I can now prepare for the next series without any pressure. There is no pressure on me. I am very comfortable at the moment. He said, “I have done a lot of work on my bowling and my fitness in lockdown.” I knew that the IPL had to be organized and I was preparing myself for it.
