Shami made an impact immediately picking up nine wickets in the match which included a fifer in the second innings. His ability to swing the ball early in the innings and reverse it towards the end impressed one and all as India had found hope in a bowler who was genuinely quick. He had reasonable outings in Tests in South Africa and New Zealand and formed a crucial bowling partnership along with Ishant Sharma. He has been spoken about in high regard by former Pakistan bowling great Wasim Akram who worked with him closely when the speedster was a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.
