Mohammed Shami, who is known for his bowling, did something unimaginable on the fifth day of the second Test match against England. He scored his maiden Test half-century at the iconic Lord’s and took India towards safety. At the time of writing, he was batting on 52 runs.
Apart from his knock, he shared an unbeaten partnership of 76 runs with Jasprit Bumrah, who was batting on 29 runs. These two not only bailed their team out of a tricky situation but also gave them a chance to go after the rival batters.
Fans were pleased with Shami and lauded him on social media. Here are some of the tweets.
