Indian cricket team is ready to face Australia from 27 November. The extent to which Team India will challenge the hosts in Australia will depend on the performance of Indian bowlers, especially Mohammad Shami. Mohammed Shami, however, has made it clear that he is not under any kind of pressure on touring Australia. Shami has told the reason for his pressure in the IPL to be relieved from the tour of Australia.
Shami had the best IPL season in which he took 20 wickets for Kings XI Punjab. This brilliant performance for Shami also included a superb defense of five runs in a double super over match against Mumbai Indians. Shami said, “My performance for Kings XI Punjab in 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, “The biggest advantage is that I can now prepare for the upcoming series without any pressure.” There is no pressure on me. I am very comfortable right now.
Shami worked on her fitness during the lockdown. 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.
Shami said that Test matches are his priority on this tour and he has been working hard during the training session for the last one week. The fast bowler said, “This tour will be very long, which will start with white ball cricket, after which pink and red ball tests will be played.” My focus has always been red ball cricket and I am working on my length and seam movement.
Let us know that on the two-month long tour of Australia, Team India will play three ODIs, three Twenty-Twenty and four Test matches.
