Shami’s Absence is a Matter of ‘Great Shame’: Alan Donald

Legendary South African pacer Alan Donald thinks the absence of Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami in South Africa vs India test series is a matter of ‘great shame’. Talking to Rev Sports, Donald has mentioned, “This attack that they have built over the last five-six years and where they are now. It’s a great shame Shami is out.”

Donald reveals that, he is massive fan of Shami’s bowling and his release. He has said, “”I’m a massive fan of him. I don’t think there is a bowler today that has got a better release when the seam comes down. He’s going to be very much missed, it’s a great shame.”

However, despite missing Shami, Donald feels, the Indian pace battery has got enough firepower to make the life difficult for the Proteas batters. “Then you’ve got Bumrah, Siraj and the rest. You know, It’s going to be a fantastic prospect,” he has added.

Shami, the 33 years old right arm pacer, was ruled out for the series because of an ankle injury. He has played 64 test matches so far and picked up 229 wickets at an average of 27.71.
