Profile

The prettiest sight for a fast bowler, watching the stumps cartwheel or getting knocked out of the ground, has become more of a next-door neighbour for Shami Ahmed in his recent international career for India.

He made his first-class debut against Assam in November 2010 where he took three wickets. In 2011, he was picked by Kolkata for the fourth season of the Indian T20 League.

With the ability to swing the new as well as the old ball at brisk pace, Shami gained a lot of respect from the Aussies during their ODI tour to India in 2013, admitting that Ahmed's deliveries hit their bats pretty hard. Shami was drafted into the Test squad thereafter, against West Indies and made his debut on his home ground at the Eden Gardens. He shell-shocked the West Indians with his reverse swing, finding the stumps on numerous occasions and attaining the best figures(9/118) by a new-ball debutant for India.

For the 2014 edition of the Indian T20 League, he will play for the Delhi franchise.
