Mukesh Kumar

Even though there was a poor performance from the Indian bowlers in the first match of the five-match T20 series against Australia, Mukesh Kumar definitely impressed everyone with his bowling. On a pitch suitable for batting on the Visakhapatnam ground, Mukesh Kumar gave only 29 runs in his four overs in that match in which he also bowled the last over of the innings. Mukesh had given only 5 runs in this over, due to which the Australian team could not succeed in taking its score beyond 208 runs. Now after this excellent performance of Mukesh, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has described him as the next junior Mohammed Shami.

Ashwin gave this reason behind calling Mukesh the next Shami

Mukesh Kumar made his debut in international cricket during the series in all three formats played on the West Indies tour in the month of July-August this year. Mukesh had a great first IPL season with Delhi Capitals and till now he has impressed everyone in all the matches he has got to play for Team India. Talking about Mukesh, Ravichandran Ashwin said on his YouTube channel that initially I thought that Mohammed Siraj Jr. would become Shami, but now I think it could be Mukesh Kumar. Ashwin then highlighted Mukesh’s physique and wrist condition to support his claim that the young fast bowler could be the next Mohammed Shami.

Ashwin pointed out these similarities in the bowling of Mukesh and Shami

Ravichandran Ashwin further talked about Mukesh Kumar’s bowling in this video and also told what are the similarities between Mohammed Shami and his bowling. Ashwin said Mukesh has a similar build, similar height, he has great wrist grip and great back-spin on the ball. Mukesh had a brilliant bowling performance during the West Indies tour. He has the ability to emulate Mohammed Shami, as the young fast bowler’s ability to bowl yorkers at will has caught his attention.
