It is said that when a lion is injured, it is more dangerous. But, those who have broken hearts become a threat like Mohammed Shami. After the World Cup semi-final played against New Zealand, a similar thing spread like wildfire on social media. There is talk about Shami that he is breaking records because his heart is broken. By taking 7 wickets in the semi-final match against New Zealand, Shami not only led India to victory but also sacrificed many records. Made some new records and destroyed many old records. Shami’s record breaking stamina in the World Cup is being linked to his heartbreak.
Shami is a star. This is the strength of Team India. He has become his biggest match winner in the World Cup 2023. Shami took the first right step towards reaching where he stands today in world cricket when he moved from UP to Bengal with the intention of playing domestic cricket. After this he got recognition from IPL. Married the person with whom Nain fought in the IPL itself. Later he also became the father of a daughter. But then something happened that broke my heart.
Heartbroken Shami barely controlled himself!
Haseen Jahan, whom Mohammed Shami had fallen in love with and married, accused him of domestic violence. Filed a case against Shami. The matter reached the court. Both of them also got divorced. This was not enough to break Shami’s heart. The distance from his daughter increased this pain further for him. But Shami has to be praised for the way he has handled himself in his personal life.
Cricket became Shami’s balm!
Now it seems as if he has turned to cricket as his balm to heal every wound, from heartbreak to separation from his daughter. Even when Shami is not with Team India, his connection with cricket is clearly visible. The Indian team is currently getting the benefit of his connection in the World Cup. He has been seen applying the balm of cricket so well in the battle of 10 teams that Team India has reached the finals without suffering the pain of any defeat.
First heart broken, now Shami is breaking records
Even though his heart is broken in his personal life, he is breaking records on the field. The wickets of the batsmen are being blown away and the teeth of the opposing teams are sour. His bowling in the World Cup 2023 cannot be praised enough. Shami doesn’t care what the pitch is like. It seems as if he is determined that if he has the ball in his hands, he will create a sensation. Will create noise. And that is what is happening.
Shami has taken 23 wickets in only 6 matches played so far in the tournament. Meaning, the maximum wickets in the World Cup 2023 are in his name only. During this period, he has taken 5 or more wickets 4 times, which is a new record in the 48-year history of the World Cup. He is also the only bowler to take 7 wickets in the knock out match of the World Cup. These are just a few big records, which have been broken by this heartbroken bowler. But the work is still incomplete, because the final is ahead and it must be won. Because where else will you get a better opportunity than this?
