India pace spearhead Zaheer Khan on Saturday said Mohammed Shami is a match-winning bowler for their side.


Shami put on display a fine exhibition of swing and seam bowling to take three for 37 and help bundle out the hosts for a paltry 105 in their second innings, PTI reported.


“He’s a great prospect for Team India and has had some brilliant performances. There is no doubt in my mind that he is a match-winner. That is the way I look at him. A good bowler has this quality to take wickets in bunches, that is what defines a good bowler, and Shami has shown that quality.  With experience he is only going to get better,” Zaheer said at the post-match presser.


“It was a brilliant performance from all the bowlers. As a bowling unit, we clicked together. The important thing was that we had some brilliant catching as well in the slip cordon and that was very crucial and it really made the difference,” he added.
