New Delhi: While talking exclusively with Zee Media, India's highest wicket taker in 2014, Mohammed Shami stated on Tuesday that the language barrier is the only problem with foreign coaches.
“We respect all the coaching staff. In fact, we all are like family. But it always feels good to have staff of from our own country,” says the seamer.
“The only problem with foreign coaches is of language. However, technically it doesn't affect us.” Shami further added.
When asked about the upcoming tour of Australia, the speedster appeared excited. “We all know the conditions would be totally different there. Tracks are fast and bouncy. So it would be a good learning experience.”
“If I manage to reverse swing the ball, it would be better for me as well as for the team.”
Shami also thinks that the tour of Australia will help the team acclimatise to the conditions ahead of the ICC World Cup. “The Word Cup 2015 is also in Australia and New Zealand, so the Australian tour just ahead of the World Cup will help us adapt and adjust ourselves with the conditions and work on our flaws,” stated Shami.
Shami is currently nursing an injury and not playing in the on-going ODI series against Sri Lanka.
