With all the cricketing activities suspended due to the lockdown in the wake of the novel Coronavirus, Shami does his workout at home. He had recently shared a workout video of his wherein he could be seen doing different exercises like push-ups and plank.
Since making his international debut in 2013, Shami has played 49 Tests, 77 ODIs and 11 T20Is where he has taken 180, 144 and 12 wickets, respectively.
The right-arm pacer has been one of the key players for India. Having started off under former skipper MS Dhoni, Shami is now the leader of the pack under Virat Kohli.
Shami’s mastery over reverse swing has been one of the big plus points for the Indian team while playing on slow unresponsive pitches. For the pacer, seam and swing are the priorities and if both are right, he focuses on keeping his speed above 140kph.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill with sporting events like the Olympics also getting postponed. The Indian Premier League (IPL), which would have kicked off by March, has also been postponed “indefinitely”.
The pandemic COVID-19 has so far claimed over 4700 lives in India and has infected more than 1.67 lakh in the country. Meanwhile, the number of deaths across the globe due to the virus is over 3.62 lakh along with the infected ones reaching the 60 lakh mark, as per the Worldometer.
