India's hero of the day Mohammed Shami said that the change of ball helped his cause as the replaced one started swinging much more enabling him to get rid of a set Marlon Samuels and an experienced Denesh Ramdin off successive overs during the opening day of first Test.

"The first ball was softer and I wasn't able to get a lot of swing with it. But after the ball was changed, it started swinging and reversing. It was a great feeling to bowl with the changed ball as well watch others bowl," Shami told mediapersons after the end of the day's play.

He has enjoyed a decent success in ODIs but the 23-year-old Bengal-based speedster said that there wasn't much adjustments that he had to make while switching from the 50-over format to the days version.
