Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has once again criticized former Pakistani cricketer Hasan Raza for his outlandish claim during the 2023 ODI World Cup.
Raza alleged that the Indian bowlers were being supplied with specially designed balls that facilitated additional swing and movement, which Shami vehemently refuted. He emphasized that the Indian team’s success was a result of their hard work, skill, and dedication and urged Raza to refrain from making unsubstantiated claims.
Shami had criticized Raza during the World Cup, responding to the latter’s baseless allegations that India’s bowlers were receiving preferential treatment. This incident gained significant attention online.
Team India reached the final of the 2023 World Cup, securing the position of runners-up. In contrast, Pakistan faced disappointment as they failed to qualify for the semi-finals.
