GT vs LSG star performer of the day: Mohammed Shami

Shami’s two quick wickets sent shivers down the LSG line-up with his new ball partner Varun Aaron, playing his first IPL match since the 2020 edition, accounted for West Indies’ Evin Lewis, top-edging a hook to be brilliantly caught by a running Shubman Gill.

What a sight it turned out with two key players in Punjab Kings ranks until last year coming face to face in their first match of the 15th edition of IPL for their new franchises on Monday.

India’s premier fast bowler Mohammed Shami took the outside edge of Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul off the first ball of the match en route to wicketkeeper Mathew Wade’s gloves and give Gujarat Titans a rousing start. Rahul played a defensive shot half-heartedly to Shami, who pitched it just outside the off-stump. Surprisingly, umpire Devendra Sharma deemed it not out but the resultant DRS taken by GT saw a clear edge.

Shami continued to impress as he is known to, bowling a wicket-to-wicket line and forcing the batsmen into making mistakes. He conceded only two runs in his first over, came back to pick up another wicket in his second over, that of left-handed opener Quinton de Kock from around the wicket. De Kock’s attempt to defend did not bear fruit and was beaten with the ball angling in and hitting the leg-stump through the gap.
