Mitchell Marsh goes viral
Mohammed Shami: Even though Mohammed Shami did not get a chance to play much in the Asia Cup, Shami bowled brilliantly in the first ODI against Australia and caught Mitchell Marsh in the slip in the first over. Shami's ball was so amazing that the batsman kept posing and the ball hit the bat and went straight into the hands of Shubman Gill standing in the slip. Marsh's facial expressions were worth seeing after getting out. Actually, Mitchell Marsh was caught out on the fourth ball of the Australian innings. The ball on which Shami caught Marsh was a length ball that was slightly outswing and went into the slip, taking the outer edge of the bat. The video of Shami's ball has been shared by the BCCI, on which a lot of comments are coming from the fans.
Early success for #TeamIndia!
A wicket for @MdShami11 as Shubman Gill takes the catch.
