Shane Warne Revealed Why Mohammed Shami Bowled With A Torn Shoe: The Indian cricket team is currently locking their horns with the Australian cricket team in the ongoing and highly-anticipated pink-ball Test game at Adelaide. Day 2 of the game saw a masterclass performance by the Indian bowlers as the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, and Ravichandran Ashwin put the visitors on top and gave India a handy lead of 53 runs.
However, day 3 saw the Australian bowlers drastically turning the tables for India with their stunning performance. All the hard-work India put in during the Day 2 of the Test match evaporated in less than an hour all thanks to the masterclass performance by the Australian bowlers.
In the meantime, Mohammed Shami has caught everyone’s attention. For the last few years, Mohammed Shami has emerged as the backbone of team India’s bowling line-up, irrespective of the format. He was also decent with the ball throughout the day. However, one thing that left everyone shocked was that he graced the field while sporting a torn shoe on his left foot.
Yes, you read that right. Shami was wearing a torn shoe on his left foot.
Later, the mystery behind the torn shoe was cleared by none other than the former Australian bowler and cricket analyst Shane Warne. He stated that Shami’s left-toe needs more space when the bowler executes his high-arm bowling action. And thus, in order to avoid any negative impact, the Indian seamer came up with the idea of wearing a torn shoe. Brilliant isn’t it?

Furthermore, Shane Warne highlighted that the torn part allows his left tow to be free while the foot is landing, thus, helping the Indian bowler to execute the delivery flawlessly. He also joked about the whole scenario saying that Shami would never dare to wear these torn shoes while batting as the Australian bowlers might injure him with their stunning yorkers.
Meanwhile, in the ongoing Test match, the Indian batting line-up badly collapsed. Talking about Mohammed Shami’s performance, he failed to pick any wicket but he bowled plenty of dot balls to ensure that his economy remains less than 2.5.
