On Monday, October 17, India defeated Australia by six runs in Brisbane’s opening T20 World Cup warm-up game. Mohammed Shami’s final-over brilliance gave India the victory.
With back-to-back wickets taken at lightning speed, Shami has helped Team India defeat Australia with ease. India won the match with two excellent yorkers.
Although the outcome is irrelevant, both teams checked off a few boxes. India’s death bowling, which has historically been a weakness, was really effective today. Yes, the warm-up allowed them to explore all of their alternatives, which they would not have in a regular game.
The hard lengths, bouncers, variations, and yorkers—everything connected with death over bowling—were all successfully executed by Bhuvneshwar, Arshdeep, Harshal, and Shami.
Four wickets in the last over
The final over was bowled by Mohammed Shami. In the last over of the warm-up game, Shami, who had been warming the bench for some time, had to defend 11 runs. With 4 wickets, including 2 bowled, 1 caught, and 1 run-out, Shami was able to save 11 runs in the last over.
