He’s been called “unplayable” at times in all formats and is said to have an advantage in the “death (closing) overs” of a limited-overs innings. He is regarded by many as one of the best fast bowlers India has ever produced as well as one of the best bowlers of his generation. With 55 wickets in 18 matches, Shami leads India in ODI wicket-taking at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

He also holds the record for the best bowling performance in an ODI, having taken 7 wickets for 57 runs against New Zealand in November 2023. In the 48 years that the Cricket World Cup has been held over 13 editions, Shami is also the bowler who has taken 50 wickets the quickest.

Mohammed Shami Childhood And Vocation

As the youngest of five children, Shami was raised in the Sahaspur hamlet in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. In his younger years, Tauseef Ali, his father, was a quick bowler and farmer. Shami was brought to Badruddin Siddique, a cricket coach in Moradabad, a town 22 kilometres (14 mi) from his home, when he was fifteen years old.

“I realised this youngster is not like other boys when I saw him [Shami] bowling at the nets when he was fifteen years old. Therefore, I chose to train him. We don’t have club cricket over here, so I trained him for the UP trials for a year. He worked really hard, was quite consistent, and was very cooperative. He didn’t miss a day of training. He bowled exceptionally well in the under-19 trials, but politics prevented him from being selected. They requested that I bring him back the following year, but just then I didn’t want Shami to miss a year. I thus suggested that his parents send him to Kolkata.”

Regarding Mohammed Shami, Badruddin Siddique

Throughout his tenure at Moradabad, Shami put a lot of effort into honing his technique. He would ask for the used balls after games to practise reversing the older ball, a skill that would be crucial to his success in the future. Nevertheless, Badruddin moved him to Kolkata in 2005 after he failed to make the Uttar Pradesh under-19 team in order to improve his prospects of being picked for a state team.

Shami was requested to join Town Club after being recommended by Debabrata Das, a former assistant secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal. Shami impressed Das with his bowling after playing for the Dalhousie Athletic Club. Shami, who was homeless in Kolkata, was taken in by Das to live with him. Shami was chosen for the Bengal under-22 team by Bengal selector Sambaran Banerjee after Shami impressed him with his bowling performance for Town Club.

“Shami had no desire for wealth. The stumps, or the sound made when a ball strikes them, were his target. The majority of his wickets were bowled ever since I last saw him. He gets it to cut back in by bowling with an upright seam on or slightly outside off stump.”

Later, Shami joined one of Bengal’s top teams, Mohun Bagan Cricket Club, to be eligible for selection to the state team. After bowling against Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of India, in the Eden Gardens nets, Shami was added to the Bengal team for the 2010–11 Ranji Trophy shortly after Ganguly suggested him to the state selectors.

Mohammed Shami Away From Cricket

All three of Shami’s brothers and father were active cricket players; Mohammed Kaif, who should not be confused with Mohammad Kaif, made his List A debut for Bengal in 2021. In their hometown of Sahaspur, Shami prepared with his brother during the 2020 COVID-19 shutdown in India. Shami and his family assisted in supplying food for the residents of their community during the lockdown.

In 2014, Shami wed Hasin Jahan. The pair has a single child. Shami discussed in 2020 the effects of his mental health of his injuries and a series of accusations made by his wife. He acknowledged having thought about ending his life three times and said that his family had helped him get over it.
