Indian pacemaker Mohammed Shami, often known for his excellent bowling, showed tremendous batting skills on the final day of the match current second Test against England. Shami lit up the iconic Lords Cricket Ground with his sensational batting and recorded a remarkable half-century.
The 30-year-old has a breathtaking partnership with his partner, Jasprit Bumrah, around the Joe Root-led side. Shami and Bumrah stand high in front of top-quality English bowlers, adding an unbeaten lead of 89 runs in the second innings.
The excellent partnership between Shami and Bumrah took India’s lead over England to 271 runs. The visitors declared their second set at 298/8, with a goal of 272 for England to win the match. While Shami remained unbeaten on 56 runs from 70 deliveries, Bumrah was not out on 34 off 64 balls.
Shami’s unreal batting performance moved social media, while fans and former cricketers flooded the internet with their reactions.
Here’s how Twitter responded:

Wow! Mazaa aa gaya.
What a wonderful partnership between Shami and Bumrah. They may not have the best techniques, but from experience I can say that bowlers have a big heart. And Ishant, Shami and Bumrah did it today at a decisive stage in the #LordsTest . pic.twitter.com/y72j3BRdpB

Roach & Seales yesterday – Shami & Bumrah today. Semantics I know; but that’s why I always like the term “lower order batsmen”, instead of “tailmakers”. We need to pay bowlers more to help the batsmen do their job ,,,, 😊.

Love this slaughter of England’s bowling. At the Indian tail, which was supposed to be blown away.
