“Jalan toh puri dikhti hai”


India pacer Mohammed Shami took a jibe at former Pakistan cricketer Hasan Raza for his comments on Indian bowlers during the ICC World Cup 2023. He said that jealousy was quite evident on people’s face in Pakistan.

Mohammed Shami was at his exceptional best in the ICC World Cup 2023. The pacer after being benched for the first few games set the stage on fire and made many go gaga about his bowling. Be it with the new ball or the old ball, the fast bowler didn’t put a foot wrong.

Mohammed Shami swung and reverse swung the ball incredibly well in the start and it didn’t go well with many experts from Pakistan, especially Hasan Raza. He made a bizarre comment, stating that the ICC is giving different balls to Indian bowlers. Speaking about the same, he elaborated:

“It seems like the ball gets changed in the second innings. I think the ICC, umpire, or the BCCI is giving a different ball to the Indian bowlers. The side batting first scored 350 and were all over the chasing team.

“The way Mohammed Shami bowled his first ball, even Angelo Matthews was stunned. During our playing days, there was only one ball which was utilised, and had both swing and reverse swing.”

Mohammed Shami recently during an interaction with News 18 asked about Hasan Raza’s comment. He said that people in Pakistan have made cricket jokes and they don’t enjoy other’s success, adding that when they lose they blame others. He explained:

“Actually they have made cricket a joke because we don’t enjoy each other’s success. You become too happy when you are being praised, but when you lose, you feel that you have been cheated.”

Mohammed Shami pointed out that Indian bowlers are far superior than Pakistan pacers and records suggest that too. He added that they are jealous but it won’t give them success. He explained:

You look at the records of the time we have been part of the team, you won’t even find them close. Jalan toh puri dikhti hai wo. Itna jalane se kon se results mil jaane hain (Jealously is evident. You can never get good results with this amount of jealously.”

Mohammed Shami was the leading wicket-taker in the ICC World Cup 2023. He picked 24 wickets and helped India reach the final of the tournament. Since the tournament, he has been out of action due to an ankle injury and there has been no certainty about when he will return.

There were a lot of speculations that he would return for the team in the ongoing five-match Test series against England. The pacer was ruled out of the first two games and there are a lot of rumors about him missing the last three games as well. Indian squad for the last three matches is yet to be announced and it remains to be seen if Mohammed Shami will be there for the team or not.
