IPL 2022: Mohammed Shami grabs three wickets in a power play in Gujarat Titans match against LSG© BCCI/IPL
Mohammed Shami got off to a great start to his IPL career at the Gujarat Titans when the veteran Indian paceman completely destroyed the top position of the Lucknow Super Giants in his team’s first IPL 2022 match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Hardik Pandya’s decision to do bowling first was proven when Shami breathed his last in his opening action, sacking LSG captain KL Rahul from the first pass of the match.
Shami managed to push an outside advantage caught by goalkeeper Matthew Wade. The referee disagreed with the appeal and that forced Pandya to choose DRS. The “Ultra Edge”showing a clear advantage and that was the end of Rahul’s stay.

Shami’s blistering spell caused the four -wicket LSG to fall in a power game in a bad start to their IPL journey.
Shami has been in exceptional performance in the IPL over the past few seasons as he was the top goal taker for his previous Punjab Kings franchise by one country mile.
