“I am not going to play forever”- Mohammed Shami
Shami made a strong back for the IPL side Punjab Capitals and has also been added to India’s squad for the CTW finals and the England Test, which is scheduled to start from August 4.

“It comes automatically as after being in international cricket for so many years, I would like to share any input that the youngsters may want. I am not going to play forever, so it will be great if I can pass on something to the youngsters,’’ Shami told Gulf News in an interview.
“We have played some extraordinary cricket in recent times as a unit and naturally, the confidence level is high on the eve of our departure for England. If we can reproduce some of the forms which we did over the last six months, I am confident it will be a great summer for us,” Shami added.
