Shami on Rohit
Team India pacer Mohammed Shami praised Indian vice-captain for his brilliant captaincy. The opening batsman of Indian cricket team gives freedom to bowlers according to Shami. He told India TV on Wednesday. “As a bowler, when I go to him for advice, he always gives positive answers. Rohit always pushes the bowlers to do what their mind tells them to, irrespective of how the batsman is playing or his strong points. He added, “I think that is very important for the confidence of a fast bowler.” He spoke how Rohit Sharma behaves differently during batting. “Rohit is a different character. He is a cool person, except when he comes to bat.”
Shami talks on Kohli
While talking about Rohit Sharma, Shami couldn’t resist talking on the character of Virat Kohli as well. He said that captain is not just aggressive but he can also emulate the aggression of fast bowlers. “Fast bowlers are very aggressive, both old and new. But the one player who could probably emulate their aggression is our own captain! Sometimes, when a picture of Virat’s celebration of a wicket goes viral on social media, I funnily ask him, “Was it my wicket or yours?,” Shami said.
Shami continued, “He celebrates more than the bowlers! Sometimes he points out that you don’t look too happy with the wicket, so I simply tell him, ‘You did all the celebration for me!’.” “But it is important to have fun on the field. Virat shows aggression, obviously, but as a unit, he has led the team brilliantly so far. In addition, he is a very aggressive batsman too,” the pacer added
The 30-year-old pace bowler, returned to cricket through the Indian Premier League for Punjab Kings. He will be going to England where the Virat Kohli-led side will play six Test matches.
