ODI WORLD CUP

Mohammed Shami was incredibly accurate when playing New Zealand: Aakash Chopra

Shami

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra praised the pacer and described why he was effective against the Kiwis after India scored a surprise victory against New Zealand thanks to Mohammed Shami’s fifer and Virat Kohli’s 95. India won the vital match by four wickets after restricting New Zealand to 273, where Shami claimed five wickets despite giving up 54 runs in his allotted ten overs.

Aakash Chopra, the host of JioCinema’s daily sports show “#AAKASHVANI,” praised Mohammed Shami’s performance and gave an explanation of why he defeated New Zealand at Dharamsala on Sunday. Mohammed Shami returned from his debut World Cup encounter with five wickets. His bowling motion appeared to be a “gun barrel straight.”

This expression refers to a pipe. It appears that he was often bowling into that pipe. His accuracy was astounding. He gets reverse swing in addition to fluctuating in length. India would have been chasing almost 325 runs, thus that’s why they ended up setting a target of 274. The key question is: When Hardik returns to fitness, will Shami remain in the starting lineup? Aakash says don’t currently have an answer for that.

Daryl Mitchell was singularly responsible for New Zealand’s success against Kuldeep Yadav: Aakash Chopra

Aakash also discussed the Kiwis’ triumph over Kuldeep Yadav. “Daryl Mitchell was the only person accountable for that.” He made excellent use of his feet. He was moving outside and attempting to catch the ball that Kuldeep had in his hand. In addition to his height, long levers, and fluidity, he exudes confidence in his ability to walk out to the ball’s pitch and hit it straight. Because of the shorter, straighter borders on the Dharamsala field, Mitchell prevailed against Kuldeep.
