India Vs Bangladesh: “He Is Like Malcolm Marshall”, Gambhir and Sunil Gavaskar Praised Indian Pacer Are World’s Best Red-Ball Bowler

Former Indian Cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and Gautam Gambhir praised India’s Pacer Mohammed Shami after he has given one of the fine performances to help India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Saturday. He finished with outstanding figures of 4/31 in the second innings as India beat Bangladesh inside three days to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

As India has achieved emphatic victory, Gavaskar and Gambhir hailed Shami’s contributions with the ball. While Gavaskar has compared Shami to West Indies great Malcolm Marshall, Gambhir stated he is presently the leading red-ball bowler in the world.

“Shami has shown that if you keep that seam position up and if you get the ball to move around off the pitch, you will get wickets,” Gavaskar told official broadcasters at the end of the match. “If he is given the new ball, who knows India might start to get early wickets.” Continuing with his statement the legendary Opening Batsman also mentioned that, Mohammed Shami is like Malcolm Marshall is some sense. His delivery also comes at you like a missile. Same kind of late inward and outward movement. Very difficult to negotiate.”

Shami became the most successful bowler in the 2nd innings in the last two years. The 29-year-old has taken 51 wickets in 20 innings at an average of 17 in the past two years. Shami has the best strike rate of 32.2 among all the bowlers who have taken 25 or more wickets since November 2017 in the second innings of a Test.
