Proud of you Mohammad Shami!! Virat Kohli Reveals Which big problem he was undergoing while playing against new Zealand

When the 2nd Test in Kolkata was in progress, India’s ace pacer Mohammad Shami’s 14-month-old daughter Aairah was admitted to a hospital due to high fever. She was then moved to ICU. However, the bowler continued to play the Test as her daughter was taken to hospital on the second day of the match.

Shami, who is known to be a shy in nature, did not inform Indian Skipper Kohli about his personal problem and it was only later(after the test match) that he decided to make the skipper know about what he was going through during the Test.

After the victory in 3rd test match played at Indore between India and NZ, Kohli was asked about his ace pacer Shami and the Skipper explained that he was a “likeable” character in the team and everyone loved him. “He (Shami) is someone who is a character in the change room. On the field you won’t see him coming out in the open and expressing himself too much. But he is someone everyone loves in the team. He is someone everyone gets along with. Whatever might be happening with him, we won’t know. I had no clue that his daughter was in the hospital. He told us after,” Kohli told reporters in Indore on Tuesday.

Kohli called Shami a “top bowler” and said he needed a bit of motivation every now and then.

“He is a guy who comes on to the field and gives everything. He just needs a bit of motivation every now and then, which every fast bowler does in conditions that we have. Skill-wise there is no doubt that he is a top bowler. He has a knack of picking up wickets. Even on this wicket (Indore), he created quite a few chances, so does Umesh (Yadav). Shami is just like any normal guy of his age. It is just that he is not expressive on the field. He is very likeable character in the change room and among the team members,” he added.

Here are some of the tweets from the ace pacer after the series.
