Mohammed Shami is all set for the ICC WTC final: ‘We Will Not Play Under Stress’
“Obviously, we are better than Boult, Southee, and Wagner. When we play Test cricket, even if someone is having a bad day the other bowlers step up. When someone is down we make sure to pick up that teammate and carry the team forward as a unit. We try to cheer him up as well- Mh. Shami told Sports Tak on Wednessday.
Mohammed Shami will be making a comeback in the Indian Test squad after more than 6 months. Shami was battling an injury that forced him to return home from the Australian tour in December 2020.

The fate of the T20 World Cup In India?
“I think it’s going to be very difficult in my view to play T20 World Cup in India. We’re talking about eight teams in the IPL. I think there is probably a similar number, maybe more teams coming in from overseas for the T20 World Cup, there’d be more venues. As I said earlier, if they’re playing in different cities, that is when the risk goes up,” Hussey told Fox Cricket.
Former Australia batsman Michael Hussey in an interview on Wednesday said that it would be difficult for India to host the T20 World Cup this year. The situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in India worsened.
Due to the high rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in India, the IPL 2021 was postponed on May 4.
