ICC WTC Final, Ind vs NZ: Mohd Shami claims India pace trio is better than Boult, Southee and Wagner

“Obviously, we are (better than Boult, Southee and Wagner). When we play Test cricket, even if someone is having a bad day the other bowlers step up. When someone is down, we make sure to pick up that teammate and carry the team forward as a unit. We try to cheer him up as well,” Shami told Sports Tak.

“If you see our records, you will have an idea of what I’m talking about. Fans don’t become fans overnight; they know the entire history. We have done a lot of homework to build this fast-bowling trio of me, Ishant Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah,” he added.

ICC WTC Finals – India vs New Zealand: It is notable that India is placed on top of the latest ICC Test rankings and the three speedsters have played a key role in it. New Zealand are placed second in the rankings table in Test matches.

The seasoned India speedster feels that top teams have qualified for the finals of the ICC WTC Final. He further stressed that conditions in Southampton will be equal for both India and New Zealand.

“The top two teams have reached the final and the match is in England. Conditions won’t be one-sided for either team. It will be a good match I think, both teams are balanced and solid. I don’t think either team will leave any lose point,” Shami added.
