You feel like bowling your heart out on Australian pitches: Mohammed Shami
Shami also said that as a bowler one is always in with a chance playing on Australian pitches.
New Delhi: Indian pacer Mohammed Shami, who picked up 17 wickets during the ICC 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand is excited to go all out in the upcoming ODI series Down Under against Steve Smith's side.
In an exclusive interview to The Hindu, the speedster stated that as a bowler, one feels to bowl his heart out given the size of the grounds. Shami also said that as a bowler one is always in with a chance playing on Australian pitches.
With top edges mostly leading to catches rather than boundaries, Shami feels there are too many plusses in Australia for a bowler.
He also cited that there are many gaps in the field but as a bowler one gets opportunities to pick wickets as the batsmen know they have to hit well in order to to clear the fence given the size of the grounds.
Shami suffered a complex knee injury post World Cup that left him bed-ridden for several weeks. It has been nine months after he last played for India, and the Bengal pacer has fully recovered.
After proving his fitness in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Shami is expected to lead the Indian attack in Australia and will be raring to go with a positive mindset.
