After a stunning performance in the ICC World Cup 2023 semifinal match against New Zealand, Mohammed Shami, the fast-bowling sensation of Team India, has become a national hero. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the team’s success, the district administration authorities in Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha have unveiled plans to construct a mini-stadium and an open gym in Shami’s village.

District magistrate Rajesh Tyagi of Amroha made the announcement on Friday, expressing his admiration for the cricket star and the desire to honor him with this new sports facility. “A proposal has been made to construct a mini-stadium and open gym in the village of Mohammed Shami, Sahaspur Alinagar,” DM Rajesh Tyagi stated.

The proposal aims to establish a state-of-the-art mini-stadium and an open gym in Sahaspur Alinagar, which is the hometown of India’s renowned pacer. Shami, who has been a standout performer throughout the ICC World Cup 2023, played a pivotal role in guiding his team to the final, despite missing the first half of the league stage matches due to injury.

In a remarkable show of support, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) party leader Jayant Singh has advocated for providing funds to facilitate the construction of this sports facility in Shami’s village. Singh expressed his commitment to the cause in a post on social media, saying, “I am keen to provide my #MPLAD funds to aid the construction of a sports facility in the village of @MdShami11. #ICCWorldCup2023 #WorldcupFinal.”

One of the notable aspects of Shami’s dominance in the World Cup has been his exceptional performance against left-arm batters. Despite being a challenge for all batters, Shami has particularly thrived against left-handed batsmen. In the current World Cup run, Shami has bowled 52 deliveries to left-arm batters and has conceded just 32 runs against them.

In the six matches he has played in the ICC World Cup 2023, Shami has taken a remarkable 23 wickets at an average of 9.13 and a strike rate of 10.91. His best bowling figures in a single match are an impressive 7/57, making him the highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far.

In the semifinal clash against New Zealand, Shami’s exceptional performance was on full display as he claimed seven crucial wickets, dismissing Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Tim Southee, and Lockie Ferguson.
