    Injuries and Bhuvi's reputation of being a better death bowler has meant he has been underbowled over his career.

    Shami's bowling average away in some top countries

    Aus - 25.22
    Ban - 25.55
    Eng - 19.00
    NZ - 21.20
    SAF - 20.55

    Low 20s average away from home in ODIs these days, insane stuff.

    India's best pace bowler over the last few years. Far better than Bhuvi "Economy" Kumar.

    Will play ahead of Bhuvi, problem is he is good test bowler also, abd injury prone too, so he is rested quite often in normal odi series which is good for his fitness.
    But in odi world cup he will play ahead of Bhuvi

    His economy against top side is pretty poor so you can't even label him with that.

    India's best pacer if you consider wicket taking ability.
    Only in death overs he fails to keep runs flow down.

    Happy he's come back strong just in time for the WC. Should make for a strong pair with the redoubtable Bumrah.

    Md shami has this "wicket taking" mentality. Dare i say has the same mentality of some of 90s Pak bowlers. He has a plan in place every over instead of trying to just hit the length hoping to get a wicket.

    He is a very good bowler in ODIs and good enough in tests. He is not anything special though like Bumrah.

    In recent years, Ishant has been a bigger deal than Shami in tests. I have seen Shami not being able to keep up the pressure at times but he is definitely a very good bowler to have in his own right.

    'There have been outstanding changes in my life' Shami eyes World Cup success after second wind

    Mohammed Shami, the India fast bowler, credited management and the coaches, both at the Indian team and the ones at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, for helping him rediscover his confidence.

    Shami was India's second-highest wicket-taker at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2015, where his 17 scalps helped India bowl out the opposition seven successive times leading up to the semi-final.

    Injury subsequently cast him on the sidelines, even as new, young fast bowlers emerged in the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. After the World Cup semi-final loss to Australia, Shami did not play one-day cricket for two years. It was a period marked by weight gain and a struggle for rhythm.

    Shami has since put those issues behind. He is now back in top shape, is once again a regular in India's ODI squad, and is primed to go at the 2019 World Cup, having been named in the 15-man squad that was announced on Monday, 15 April. "In the last 18 months, I have continuously worked on my fitness and have been constantly trying to improve my game, [and] on what will be better for my team," he said on the sidelines of the IPL in Mohali.

    "Yes, I was a bit heavy after my injury and didn't play ODIs for an extended time, but I have played ODIs recently. Especially in the last six months, there have been some outstanding changes in my life. I am happy with whatever I have achieved. I lost so much of weight, my body has that flow now and the rhythm, I feel, is similar to when I started [my career]. I will try to maintain the same rhythm in the future for the World Cup.

    "There's a lot of difference [with my bowling] when compared to, say three years back. I have done a lot of hard work. I've worked with the coaches, and the confidence that I got with the Indian team, backing me when I was trying to improve my fitness levels, the management, the NCA - they all backed me with all their heart. I was also dedicated to take on the fitness challenge in front of me. I accepted that and the result is now in front of you."

    Apart from issues with fitness, Shami has also had to deal with personal problems. He even had to take a break from the 2018 Indian Premier League after suffering a head injury in a road accident. But after spending another year out of the ODI team, Shami has gone back to his wicket-taking ways since returning to the side in October last year. He is Kings XI Punjab's highest wicket-taker in the IPL this season, with 10 wickets in eight matches.

    "I'm very happy that I have got a second chance in a World Cup," he said. "As far as performance is concerned, they way I had performed in 2015, how I approached it with confidence, I am hoping that there's an increased confidence in me. And whatever confidence that I have, in terms of my performance in the last seven-eight months, I want to carry that confidence and put my best foot forward for my team."

    With India's players up for a full grind, with the IPL season followed immediately by the World Cup, workload management has been a frequently broached subject. But Shami felt the IPL offered ideal simulation to be mentally prepared to deal with pressure at the marquee event.

    "Playing these matches [in the IPL] help in terms of fitness and mental preparation," he said. "It's a challenging tournament before the World Cup and it is very helpful in the preparation, mentally and physically."

    Shami has to be in the playing XI. It does not swing in England in ODIs beyond the first 3-5 overs making Kumar's medium pace absolute cannon fodder. Shami can crank it up if needed.


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    There are days when Shami is literally unplayable on any surface. He actually intimidates batsmen with his pace and sharp bouncers.

    But then there are days when he looks totally uninterested, bowling mid to late 130s. That's not good enough and I am not sure about his ability to turn it on at will.

    In IPL he is bowling in mid 140s. He seems to have regained peak fitness.

    He has to start in the WC. He has been brilliant with the white ball in the last few months.

    Those are the days when he gets a call from his ex wife!

    Yeah, Shami has that EX Factor!

    Shami should obviously start in playing eleven. He was our best bowler in last WC. He is in rhythm. He is fast. And he takes wickets.

    Bumrah and Shami will start along with 2 wrist spinner's. If needed and if weather is too English then bhuvi can play for a spinner.

    Shami is much better than Kumar. Shami should play every game.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?
