Amir Khan Praises Indian Bowling as ‘World Class’
In a record-breaking victory that left cricket enthusiasts worldwide in awe, India stormed into the semifinals of the 2023 World Cup, underlining their status as one of the tournament’s favorites. The match, held at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on November 2, witnessed an exceptional bowling display by the Indian team that played a pivotal role in their 302-run triumph over Sri Lanka.
India’s journey to the semifinals has been marked by a series of dominant performances, making them the only undefeated team in the tournament. With 14 points from seven matches, they sit at the top of the points table, setting the stage for a compelling semifinal clash.
The Wankhede encounter featured a splendid batting performance from the Indian side, led by Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer. Their collective brilliance propelled India to a commanding total of 357 for 8, and it proved to be a mountain too high for the Sri Lankan team to scale.
Shubman Gill was the star with the bat, scoring a dazzling 92, narrowly missing out on a century. Virat Kohli played a captain’s innings with 88 runs, and Shreyas Iyer contributed a valuable 82, guiding India to a massive total.
Seeing the bowlers’ performance, actor Amir Khan hailed India’s bowling attack. He called it as a “world class bowling attack.”

Indian bowlers stole the show
However, it was India’s bowling prowess that truly stole the show. Mohammed Shami, who had already been making waves in the tournament, delivered another stunning performance. Shami’s fiery spell sent shockwaves through the Sri Lankan batting lineup. He finished with a five-wicket haul, a remarkable achievement that catapulted him into the record books.
With this performance, Mohammed Shami became India’s highest wicket-taker in ODI World Cups, surpassing the likes of Zaheer Khan and Javagal Srinath. Shami’s remarkable journey to this milestone was accomplished in just 14 matches, where he amassed an astounding 45 wickets. He equaled the record held by Mitchell Starc for the most five-wicket hauls in World Cups, a testament to his remarkable talent.
Zaheer Khan and Javagal Srinath, two legendary Indian fast bowlers, had taken 23 and 34 matches, respectively, to achieve their respective tally of 44 wickets in World Cups. Shami’s speed and precision have made him a force to be reckoned with in the world of fast bowling.
The Indian pace attack, comprising Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Jasprit Bumrah, unleashed a relentless assault on the Sri Lankan batsmen. They displayed remarkable accuracy, pace, and movement that left the opposition in disarray. This collective effort resulted in Sri Lanka being bowled out for a mere 55 runs, sealing India’s emphatic 302-run win.
As India now looks ahead to the World Cup semifinals, their formidable bowling unit, led by Mohammed Shami, will undoubtedly be a key asset. The team’s unbeaten run and the depth in their bowling arsenal make them strong contenders for the coveted World Cup title. With the knockout stages approaching, cricket fans can expect more thrilling displays of cricketing prowess and competitive spirit in the journey to determine the 2023 World Cup champion.
