India fast bowler Mohammed Shami is in good rhythm after performing well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) so he can prepare for the big Test series against Australia without any pressure. Shami had a good IPL season, taking 20 wickets for Kings XI Punjab. It also included a five-run brilliant defense against the Mumbai Indians in a ‘double super over’. Shami told BCCI dot com on Saturday that my performance against Kings XI Punjab in the IPL has given me a lot of confidence and put me in the right position.
