what did shami say

Shami did not get a chance in India’s initial matches, but after this, when he was included in the playing eleven, he bowled amazingly. He has taken 23 wickets so far in this tournament. Shami said after the match, I was waiting for my opportunity. I had not played much limited overs cricket. I made my comeback in Dharamshala only against New Zealand. We talk a lot about variations but I believe it is important to pitch the ball forward and take wickets with the new ball.

Regarding India finally crossing the semi-final hurdle, Shami said, it is a great feeling. In the last two World Cups we lost in the semi-finals. No one knows when you will get such an opportunity again, so we did not want to leave any stone unturned this time. We did not want to let this opportunity slip away.

Team India won the toss and batted first and scored 397 runs for four wickets. In this way he made the record of the highest score in the knockout stage of the World Cup. In reply, New Zealand team was out after scoring 327 runs in 48.5 overs. For Team India, Virat Kohli played an inning of 117 runs and Shreyas Iyer played an inning of 105 runs. Kohli also scored the 50th century of his ODI career. He has gone ahead of the great Sachin Tendulkar’s 49 centuries.
