India fast bowler Mohammed Shami revealed an incident where he got some scolding from former captain MS Dhoni. Shami while talking to his Bengal teammate Manoj Tiwary in an Instagram Live Chat told about this.
India were playing a Test match in New Zealand where Brendon McCullum struck a triple-hundred. But before he could achieve the feat, he was given another chance to bat after being dropped by Virat Kohli while he was on 14. The aggressive right-handed batsman went on to score 300 runs for his side that frustrated Shami and he bowled a bouncer that went for a boundary over Dhoni’s head.
Later, while going back to the dressing room, the skipper told Shami that he should have bowled the last delivery properly to which, the fast bowler replied that the ball had slipped from his hands.
“Mahi bhai ne mujhe thode se tight language mein bola, ‘Dekh beta, bohot log aaye mere saamne. Bohot log khel ke chale gaye jhut mat bol.’
Batting first, New Zealand were bundled out for 192 after Ishant Sharma scalped six wickets in Wellington. Later, the visitors posted 438, thanks to Shikhar Dhawan’s 98 and Ajinkya Rahane’s ton.
But New Zealand turned the fortunes for themselves in the second innings as they scored a mammoth 680/8 (D) riding on McCullum’s 302. Zaheer Khan picked up a fifer in the second innings. Virat Kohli then scored 105* in the second innings as the match ended in a draw.
