Indian cricket fans have surely seen an emotional roller coaster during the ODI World Cup 2023. Its highs and lows kept them on the edge of their seats. One name that sticks out among the many headlines is that of India pacer Mohammed Shami.
India’s great run to the finals has been largely attributed to the speedster’s brilliant show, which has won the hearts of millions of people all around the country.
Payal Ghosh’s unique marriage proposal
Despite the joyous occasion, Shami’s personal life has been in a scandal as his ex wife. Hasin Jahan made headlines for not sending the cricket player her best wishes during an interview with News Nation.
Hasin said, “I will wish Team India the best, but not him.”
Indian actress and politician Payal Ghosh has now added another level of drama to the story by coming up with a special proposal for Shami. Payal Ghosh proposed marriage to the Indian seamen on her official social media account. The proposal quickly gained the interest of the media and fans as it was comic and had a clause.
“#Shami “Tum apna English sudharlo.”
I’m ready to marry you (Shami, please work on your English, and I’m ready to marry you),” Payal wrote.
It is vital to note that Payal is a popular figure in the TV sector. She is the VP of the Republican Party’s women’s wing, which is led by Ramdas Athawale. She is also quite active on social media. Her marriage proposal added a playful thing to the debates around Shami.
Payal Ghosh has acted in a few Telugu and Hindi films. She made headlines recently when she told that she wanted to marry Mohammed Shami, the standout bowler for Team India, at the 2023 ICC World Cup. The actress has now made some big accusations against Gautam Gambhir and Irfan Pathan, two former cricketers.
Mohammed Shami’s brilliant show in CWC 2023
Mohammed Shami has been nothing short of brilliant in this event. He is now India’s top wicket-taker despite missing the opening games. In just four games, he has taken 16 wickets, including two fifers.
His brilliant bowling and great innovations have been a great part of the success of Team India, garnering him recognition and respect from cricket fans all around the world.
Mohammed Shami was the leading wicket-taker in World Cup 2023. He is an unbelievable player who was forced to miss the first four games of the competition. And then he returned with a bang.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya‘s injury made the 33-year-old Shami into the lineup. He quickly made a name in Dharamsala by taking five wickets against New Zealand. He took 7-57 against New Zealand in the Mumbai semifinal later in the game.
Additionally, Mohammed Shami took many injections during the 2023 ODI World Cup, a person close to the fast bowler said PTI. The India pacer failed a fitness test that took place in front of the BCCI medical staff. As a result, he did not play in the South Africa Test series. Since the World Cup 2023 final game, the India pacer has not played cricket.
Mohammed Shami played with discomfort at the ODI World Cup. But a regular heel problem is keeping him from playing, a source told PTI. Despite missing the first four games of the competition, the fast bowler had the best wicket-taking percent. In just 7 games, Shami took 24 wickets at an great economy of 5.26.
“Shami’s left heel has a chronic problem. Many people are unaware that Shami played the entire World Cup in discomfort and took injections”. A former Bengal teammate who was aware of his issues told PTI.
Shami’s impressive record during ODI World Cup 2023
Shami’s 7-57 against New Zealand in the Mumbai semi-final is the best bowling figure by an Indian bowler in a ODIs. Mohammed Shami has taken 24 wickets in 7 games. That includes the final match, making it the most in the 2023 World Cup.
With 24 wickets, Shami has surpassed Zaheer Khan’s 21 in the 2011 World Cup to become the most by an Indian in a single World Cup.
Mohammed Shami has four five-wicket hauls in the World Cup. This is the most by any bowler in the World Cup history. In addition, he is the first Indian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in World Cup history and the fastest bowler to get so. During the World Cup, Shami has taken 55 wickets in 18 games.
