IPL 2017: ‘MS Dhoni is still the best we have,’ Mohammed Shami lashes out at former India captain’s critics
India pacer Mohammed Shami says it is important for him to make most use of the last Indian Premier League (IPL) game and upcoming practice sessions to be fully ready for next month’s ICC Champions Trophy in United Kingdom. Shami has played seven IPL games for Delhi Daredevils since returning from injury, conceding runs at close to 10 runs per over and taking five wickets.
Against Rising Pune Supergiant last night, Shami had a decent outing and also effected a match-winning run-out of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
“Definitely, the more you play after coming from an injury, the better it is for your rhythm. You get confidence out of that. So I am looking to make the most of upcoming game and practice sessions to lift my confidence as high as I can,” said Shami.
Talking about his direct hit which was too accurate for even someone like Dhoni, Shami said: “Yes, it was a game changer. I just went for it knowing Mahi bhai is quick between the wickets and it just clicked.”
