After the match against Sri Lanka, Shami said, “All this is the result of hard work, I want to thank Allah. “The kind of momentum we’ve got,” he said. The storm is coming from here. The kind of bowling we are bowling. So, I don’t think anyone is enjoying bowling.

Shami said, “I always try to tip the ball at the right place and try to get the rhythm. Because in big tournaments, if your rhythm deteriorates, it becomes difficult to bounce back. There is nothing like rocket science in this. We are working together and the results are in front of you.
