Watch: Mohammed Shami stuns Faf du Plessis with a wondrous delivery
India’s one of the best pacer in recent time Mohammed Shami shows his swinging worth again by dismissing South Africa’s captain Faf du Plessis with a stunning inswing delivery in the last day of the first test match at Visakhapatnam on Sunday, October 6.
Mohammad Shami unleashed devastation with his deadly bowling in the second innings to leave South Africa destroyed. The pacer picked three significant wickets of Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock in the second innings of the match. Among these three wickets, the wicket of Proteas captain was the most watchable one.
In the 22nd over of the match, du Plessis left the last delivery of the over. But what he saw was an inswing delivery ripped apart his stumps and bells shattered down to the ground. It left Plessis with much amaze and frustration as he never expected this kind of outcome.
Meanwhile, Shami continued his domination in the second innings of a test match as he had already taken 4 wickets and threw the Proteas out of the match. In the last two years, Shami’s average in the second innings is 19.32 and noticeably his average in first innings is 34.55 which clearly proved his dominance in the second innings.
Chasing the huge target of 395 runs, South Africa was shambolic from the beginning of their innings as they lost their wicket continuously. Only half of the batsman of their lineup managed to score double-digit innings which showed their failure very well. At the time of writing this article, lunch session is going on and South Africa are in a must lose position with 117/8 requiring another 278 runs to win.
