Mohammed Shami is one of the most dangerous bowlers going in world cricket when it’s his day. He can produce a peach of deliveries out of nowhere to surprise the batsman on a given day. His upright seam only helps him to be unpredictable about his deliveries. And it seemed it was his day at the Wankhede Stadium where Gujarat Titans were taking on Lucknow Super Giants.
Shami produced two magical deliveries in two overs to remove both the openers of Lucknow. While he got KL Rahul with a breathtaking outswinger on the very first ball of his first over, he dismissed de Kock off an incoming delivery. Shami went wide of the crease to de Kock from around the wicket and created a gem of a delivery. His upright seam position helped Shami go past de Kock’s defense and clean him up.

Gujarat Titans start with a bang
On the back of Shami’s heroics, Gujarat Titans were able to create pressure on Lucknow batters which yielded them four wickets in the powerplay. While Shami took three wickets, Varun Aaron also chipped in with a wicket inside the powerplay. Aaron dismissed Evin Lewis with a short-pitch delivery.
