Mohammed Shami hit a magnificent 37 off 47 balls in the first innings of the Nagpur Test, breaking the record set by Indian great Virat Kohli.
Although Mohammed Shami is the star fast bowler of the Indian team, but his batting records are also excellent.
Shami averages more than 45 and has a strike rate of 89 in Test matches held in India since 2017. Shami has 722 runs in 85 innings of 61 Tests with 2 fifties. In the Nagpur Test too, he thrashed the Australian bowlers and scored 37 off 47 balls.
Shami was instrumental in India’s lead of 223 runs. He hit two fours and three sixes in this inning. During this, Shami made such a record in which batting great Virat Kohli also remained behind him.
