Mohammed Shami: Watch: Mohammed Shami clinches his 100th IPL wicket in style | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Veteran India and Gujarat Titans pacer Mohammed Shami on Friday joined the elite 100-wicket club in the Indian Premier League, when he dismissed Chennai Super Kings batter Devon Conway in the 2023 season opener.
Shami became the 19th bowler to achieve the feat in the tournament.
Shami gave hosts and defending champions Gujarat Titans a brilliant start by removing the CSK opener in the third over of the contest. It was also the first wicket to fall in the new season.
The pacer castled Conway’s stumps with a peach of a delivery for just 1, reducing CSK to 14/1 in 2.2 overs. Conway failed to read Shami’s delivery and ended up missing the ball completely and the stumps went flying into the air.

Shami returned figures of 2 for 29 in 4 overs against CSK. The pacer now has 101 wickets from 94 IPL matches at 28.09 average. With the best figures of 3/15, the pacer has conceded runs at an economy of 8.50 in the league.
Chennai Super Kings Dwayne Bravo is the leading wicket-taker in IPL with 183 wickets in 161 matches, followed by Mumbai Indians legend Lasith Malinga, who has 170 wickets from 122 matches.
