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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> "Only the [jersey] colour changes [in Test format]. There's no alteration in basic line and length bowling. There wasn't any plan as such. My strength lies in line, length and swing. I don't change my technique as per opponents."<br /> <br /> He bowled three West Indies batsmen with lethal in-cutters but the debut wicket of <a href="/tags/Kieran-Powell/post" target="_blank">Kieran Powell</a>, will always remain the special one.<br /> <br /> "I just did my job. Nothing more than that. But the debut wicket (Kieran Powell) will always remain extra-special for me although all the wickets are equally important."<br /> <br /> He further said:"I am always up for challenge. I don't back off. I get adjusted wherever I feel nice."<br /> <br /> Shami said that the senior players including skipper <a href="/tags/MS-Dhoni/post" target="_blank">Mahendra Singh Dhoni</a> had told him to stick to a plan.<br /> <br /> "All the seniors told me to stick to the plan that was chalked out. I did just that," he added.<br /> <br /> Son of a farmer, Shami had to come to Kolkata in 2007 to revive his cricketing career as there were not much opportunity in his remote village Sahaspur near Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh.
