Mohammed Shami, Team India fast bowler, took to his official Twitter account on Monday, to share a video of him sweating it out in the nets, a day after the Indian Cricket Team kickstarted its outdoor training in Sydney.
The Men in Blue are currently undergoing the mandatory 14-day quarantine in Sydney. However, the visitors have been allowed to train outdoors following the negative return of their Covid-PCR tests.
Mohammed Shami, who has been selected in all three squads for the tour Down Under, expressed his excitement on finally getting to bowl in the national team’s nets on Tuesday.
“There is no better feeling than to play for your country. A long wait to bowl in the #TeamIndia nets finally ended today! Looking forward to our Australian tour. #teamindia #Mshami11 #SaddaPunjab” Shami wrote.

Mohammed Shami has been at the height of his powers in the past 2 years
The fast bowler finished with 20 wickets in the recently concluded season of the IPL, where he impressed one and all with his death bowling.
With Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar injured, Mohammed Shami will once again be the vital cog in India’s fast bowling armor alongside Jasprit Bumrah.
Shami played a key role in India’s historic Test series win in Australia two winters ago, where he finished with 16 wickets across four Test matches. India will kickstart their tour of Australia with six white-ball internationals, which is set to start with the three-match One-day International series in Sydney from November 27.
The ODI and T20I rubber will be played in Sydney and Canberra before the action moves to the all-important four-match Test series, starting with the Pink ball Test at the iconic Adelaide Oval from December 17.
