Sabyasachi Bagchi: He went to South Africa with a mission to clinch two milestones. But they are yet to be achieved. Mohammed Shami took 15 wickets in the test series against the Proteas to do justice to his reputation of being one of the best seamers in India. Simultaneously, he also took 100 wickets to create a new milestone in Test cricket. That eventually became a great confidence booster for him. But he has no grief for not playing in the ODI series.

He returned to Kolkata on Tuesday. On Wednesday he was up close with XtraTime to share his feeling about the historic series win after 25 long years, Virat Kohli’s batting storm, Jaspreet Bumrah’s rise and the other issues.
