The 30-year-old fast bowler has been included in India’s squads for all three formats and could be seen in action on November 27 when India take on Australia in the first of the three One-day Internationals at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). “There is no better feeling than to play for your country.

Looking forward to our Australian tour,” wrote Shami as caption for a video he posted on social media that showed him running in to bowl in the nets.
