Palekal, August 31 (Language) Mohammed Shami has no qualms in bowling with the old Kookaburra instead of the new ball in ODI cricket and he says that he is ready to adapt as per the need of the team and has no ego.
With the return of Jasprit Bumrah for the Asia Cup, it remains to be seen who will handle the new ball with him on Saturday against Pakistan.
In Bumrah’s absence, Shami and Mohammed Siraj took the new ball in the ODI series against Australia in March.
Shami told Star Sports before the Asia Cup, “I have no hesitation in bowling with the new ball or the old ball.” I don’t have any such ego. All three of us (Bumrah, Shami and Siraj) are bowling well and it depends on the team management who they want to field.
He said, “If I am given a new ball or whenever I am asked to bowl, I am always ready.”
He said, “There is a lot of talk about the white and red balls. But if you bowl accurately then there is no problem in any format. My only goal is to give my 100 percent on the field. If you can do this, then you will get the results automatically. ,
He said that Bumrah’s return before the World Cup will boost the morale of the team.
Shami said, “Jassi (Bumrah) was not playing for a long time. We missed him. His return has strengthened our bowling a lot. He is looking fit and playing well. Hope to do well in the Asia Cup.
