Champion Indian pacer Mohammed Shami is looking in prime shape to showcase his skills to the hilt against the English batters in the upcoming Test series against the Joe Root-led hosts.
The five-match Test series between England and India will kick off at Trent Bridge in Nottingham from August 04, and Shami will be one of the key cogs in the visitors’ bowling unit.
Shami, on Saturday, uploaded a video of one of his spells during a practice session on his official Twitter account where the Uttar Pradesh-born pacer looked menacing, to say the least.
Shami has often been guilty of being a bit short of the ideal length needed in English conditions and that is one of the reasons why he has drawn more play and misses than edges on his previous tours of the United Kingdom.
In the video, Shami can be seen aiming at the stumps with the fullish length.
He starts off with a good length delivery but the pacer immediately compensates for his length and goes full on the succeeding deliveries.
Mohammed Shami was the pick of the Indian seamers during the recent World Test Championship final against New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
The right-handed bolted claimed 4/76 in New Zealand’s first innings which included prize scalps of Ross Taylor, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, and Kyle Jamieson.
Team India will hope that Shami carries his form in the five-match Test series against England.
