Shami’s Artistry Continues: Southee Departs in the Semi-Final Showdown

In the electrifying semi-final clash between India and New Zealand, Mohammed Shami continued his bowling brilliance by claiming yet another crucial wicket. This time, the victim was none other than Tim Southee, adding to the drama unfolding at the Wankhede Stadium.

The dismissal transpired with a deceptive off-cutter from Shami. Bowling at a speed of 122.4kph, the delivery maintained a full length, enticing Southee into a hard-hitting drive. However, the New Zealand batsman could only manage an outside edge.


KL Rahul, displaying agility and sharp reflexes, executed a smart catch by diving to his right. The crowd erupted in cheers as Shami secured his sixth wicket, showcasing his mastery in the crucial semi-final encounter. The question now lingers: Can Shami add one more wicket to his impressive tally?

Southee departed after contributing 9 runs off 10 deliveries, leaving New Zealand with dwindling resources in the face of India’s bowling prowess. With each passing wicket, the intensity of the match escalates, and the Wankhede Stadium buzzes with anticipation.
