IPL 2022 Mega Auction: Gujarat Titans picks Mohammed Shami for a cost of 6.25 crore

Shami is signed by team a for an astonishing sum of x crore.

Gujarat Titans wins the bidding for Mohammed Shami, despite the fact that Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants were also interested, but the stunning amount of 6.25 crore stunned the other bidders. Gujarat Titans will be ecstatic to land India’s best pacer and a long-time team performer.

Shami made his T20 debut against Pakistan in 2014 and has since played 17 games in the format, taking 18 wickets. His dismal average economy in T20s, though, remains a mystery. Shami’s average economy has improved marginally in the IPL, but he still needs to improve. Shami has 79 wickets to his name in the IPL, where he has appeared in 77 games.

He also had early success in Twenty20 cricket, taking 14 wickets in his first eight domestic Twenty20 games, and was contracted by Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2011 IPL season. Shami could n’t seem to have a successful season in the IPL from 2013 to 2018, taking only 21 wickets in a total of six seasons. Shami’s previous three years have been spectacular, with fans seeing his incredible performance in which he took 19 wickets in 2019, 20 wickets in 2020, and 19 wickets in 2021. The franchise has made a good investment in the man in form.

Mohammed Shami’s pace and international cricket expertise will undoubtedly add to the team’s prospects in the forthcoming TATA Indian Premier League: 2022.
