Mohammed Shami turned 30 on Thursday (September 3) and birthday wishes poured in from all corners of the country for the Indian speedster.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a video of Shami’s spell of 5/35 against South Africa in 2019.

India captain Virat Kohli also took to social media to extend birthday wishes to his star pacer. “Happy b’day Shami @MdShami11. Mehnat aur bowling dono karte raho daba ke.”

Meanwhile, India pacer Umesh Yadav wrote, “Pace like fire. Janamdin Mubarak @MdShami11. God bless you abundantly.”

Here’re some more tweets –

Shami, who will be leading Kings XI Punjab’s pace attack in the IPL 2020 in UAE, is an integral part of India’s phenomenal pace quartet along with Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh.

Whether it’s his splendid Test spells in England and Australia or a magnificent hat-trick to dismantle Afghanistan in the 2019 World Cup, Shami and breakthroughs go hand in hand.
