Mohammed Shami has tasted quite a significant amount of success, representing India at the highest level. He is currently a part of the national squad for the two-match Test series in the West Indies. On the second day of the second Test at the Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica, the Bengal pacer knocked over Shimron Hetmyer with an in-dipper that cannoned into the stumps.
The pacer is no mug with the bat either, having scored over 433 with a solitary half-century versus England at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. However, of late, he hasn’t done anything of sorts with the bat in hand. In fact, Shami hasn’t scored a single run in the last six innings he has batted in.
In the first innings, he fell prey to debutant Rahkeem Cornwall for a two-ball duck. Shami has now joined BS Chandrasekhar, who went run-less for six straight innings on the 1977-78 tour. The world record is currently being held by Chris Martin, who spent nine consecutive innings run-less.
Here are details on Mohammed Shami’s numbers
0(2) vs West Indies (Kingston)
0(1) vs West Indies (North Sound)
0*(3) vs Australia (Melbourne)
0*(0) vs Australia (Perth)
0(1) vs Australia (Perth)
0(1) vs Australia (Adelaide)
India in a commanding position
Shami’s services weren’t required though as by the time he came to bat in, the visiting team already had 414 runs on the board. Mayank Agarwal and Virat Kohli scored half-centuries to set the platform. Then it was the turn of Hanuma Vihari to show his class and mettle at the highest level. He scored his maiden international century and notched 111 runs off 225 deliveries with 16 fours.
He got apt support from Ishant Sharma, who racked up his second first-class half-century. Vihari and Ishant shared a stand of 112 runs for the eighth wicket. Vihari was the last wicket to fall to Jason Holder, who finished with a five-wicket haul. India were bowled out for 416 runs in 140.1 overs.
Thereafter, Jasprit Bumrah stomped in and destroyed the West Indies batting lineup, picking up six of the seven hosts’ wicket on the second day. Holder and Co are presently reeling at 87 for seven and are 329 runs behind India’s first innings score. Jahmar Hamilton and Cornwall are in the middle.
