Veteran India pacer Mohammed Shami set a new record as the quickest bowler to reach fifty wickets in the history of ICC Cricket World Cups. He achieved the feat during the first semifinal between India and New Zealand in the ongoing tournament at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on November 15, Wednesday.

Shami was crucial during the clash while India are defending the mammoth total of 397 runs. He provided two early breakthroughs for the Rohit Sharma-led side, dismissing Devon Conway and Rachin Ravindra, respectively. Despite Shami’s efforts, Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell spearheaded New Zealand’s charge.

Notably, on the second delivery of the 33rd over, Shami delivered a pivotal breakthrough by dismissing the Kiwi captain for 69 runs. Continuing his impact, he claimed his 50th wicket in the tournament in the same over by dismissing wicketkeeper-batter Tom Latham for a two-ball duck. Shami’s delivery, angled in around the good length in the middle, skidded through as Latham attempted to flick it away. Unfortunately, the Kiwi batter closed the face too early, resulting in a hit on the pads right in front of the stumps. The subsequent LBW appeal was successful, leading to the Kiwi’s dismissal.
