“We have a combination of everything and that is very important. Somebody like Shami people have gone for 10 crores, 12 crores, 14 crores but here is Shami. I have always believed in him.

People might be saying ‘Oh, white-ball format, not much impressive numbers’. Numbers in T20 formats are as it is very close. In the end, how you use a player. Here you are talking about a guy who has really bowled well,” Nehra told Boria Majumdar on his show ‘Backstage with Boria’.

While praising Shami for the experience he would bring to the table, Nehra went on to compare the veteran India pacer with Jasprit Bumrah.

“When it comes to Shami, I keep him absolutely on par with Jasprit Bumrah. Even when you see white-ball cricket, be in T20 or ODIs, maybe Bumrah’s economy rate is 7.5 and Shami can be 8.2, 8.5, but look at his strike rate. He is a wicket-taker. When you have somebody like Shami and his experience, you cannot ask for anything better,” added Nehra.

Mohammed Shami is one of the best pacers in world cricket right now. The Indian fast bowler has delivered for the country in all formats of the game and has gone from strength to strength in the past few years.

Mohammed Shami’s ability to trouble batters is well known despite the conditions and the opposition that he is up against.

This year, Mohammed Shami will be playing for the Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after being bought by the Gujarat Titans for INR 6.25 crores during the IPL 2022 mega auction which took place last month.
