Former England quick bowler Steve Harmison said, that Mohammed Shami is “more English” than most of England’s bowlers. Also, in his gameplay and that he shapes a deadly partnership with Ishant Sharma. Harmison said that Shami is comparable. On how he and Matthew Hoggard utilized to bowl.
“Shami I think is more English than some of the seamers that we’ve got in our team because he runs up, he’s got great core strength, a big backside, a bit like Matthew Hoggard and my time. We used to have big backsides, could really swing it away in and around off stump and I think Shami is a fine, fine bowler,” Harmison told ESPNCricinfo.
“With that, you’ve got some person like Ishant. He is 6 foot or 4 and Shami is approximately 5 foot 10. One is bringing the ball back within, the other is taking it absent. They complement each other and many,” he included.
“You’ve got a tall bowler in Ishant who likes to get the ball going in nature and because he has such a nice seam position, he can at times roll his fingers a little bit and get the ball to nip away. So, that way, he’s very, very dangerous because you can be doubtful about where your off stump is. That’s why he is Virat’s go-to man as he can give him a lot of overs,” Harmison said.
Ishant, agreeing to Harmison. He is India captain Virat Kohli’s go-to man, because of the way he can take the ball absent from the batsman.
