Team India fast bowler Mohammad Shami took a special achievement in the first one-day against New Zealand on Wednesday. Shami completed his 100 ODI wickets by Martin Guptill in the first match being played in Napier. Shami has become the fastest Indian fast bowler to take 100 wickets in one-day cricket. He did this amazing in the 56th match of his career.
Shami broke the record of fast bowler Irfan Pathan of Team India. Pathan completed his century in 59 ODIs. Team India’s former fast bowler Zaheer Khan is third in the list of 100 wickets in one-day internationals. Right-arm fast bowler completed 100 wickets in 65 one-dayers.
Former Indian fast bowler Ajit Agarkar and Javagal Srinath are fourth and fifth respectively. Agarkar scored 67 while Srinath completed 100 one-day wickets in 68 matches. Shami took the 100th wicket on the fifth ball of the first over of his spell in the first one-day against New Zealand. He cleans bold Kiwi opener Martin Guptill on the glorious inswing ball.
After this, in the fourth over of their next and New Zealand innings, Shami jumped the second one to the hosts. Right-arm fast bowler gave Colin Munro a clean-bold and gave great success to Team India. This was Shami’s 101st wicket of one-day careers. Let me tell you that last year Shami was scattered from domestic problems. Due to a dispute with his wife, he was quite upset.
However, Shami made a stern return on the field and did not let the impact of his personal problems fall on cricket. Shami recently hit five wickets in three matches in the thriving one-day series against Australia. Due to his superb performance, the fast bowler has offered his bid for the 2019 World Cup.
