2012 Season Statistics
|Birth Date||09 March 1990|
Shami’s ability to swing the ball and accuracy has made him a vital cog in the Indian lineup since his debut in 2013. The medium pacer, who made his Ranji Trophy debut for Bengal against Assam in November 2010, was signed up by the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2011. On his ODI debut, in a low-scoring, high-pressure match against Pakistan in Delhi, he returned match-winning figures of 9-4-23-1. He became the first Indian to bowl four or more maiden overs on debut. The pacer who made an impression on India’s tours abroad will be a player to watch out for in IPL 2014.
