Fans give rousing reception to Mohammed Shami after online abuse episode

Mohammed Shami got a rousing reception from the fans as he came out to bat at No. 8 for India in their T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12 match against New Zealand.

He was given a loud round of cheers from the supporters at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The crowd was up on his feet applauding the Indian fast bowlers’ entry into the middle after the dismissal of Shardul Thakur in the 19th over.

Shami was targeted by trolls after his ordinary performance against Pakistan in their T20 World Cup match.

Shami didn’t face a single ball and India managed 110 runs from 20 overs. The Men in Blue never gave a fight to the rivals as the batters failed to score heavily. Even in the bowling department, the bowlers took just 2 wickets.
