Mohammed Shami strengthened his case for a place in India's Playing XI at the T20 World Cup as he produced a fiery, match-winning over to take his team over the line in the warm-up match against Australia in Brisbane on Monday.
Shami, who has not played a T20I game for India since last year's World Cup, did not feature in the Playing XI, but came on to bowl the final over of the match, with Australia needing 11 to win.
Shami, picked up three wickets while giving away just four runs as India beat Australia by six runs at the Gabba.
Shami was officially named as Jasprit Bumrah's replacement by the BCCI last week
Shami conceded two doubles off the first two balls of the over, but what transpired from there was something no one would have seen coming.
Shami dismissed Pat Cummins out caught in the deep with Virat Kohli completing a one-handed screamer at long on.
Shami followed it by running out Ashton Agar at the non-striker's end to make it 7 needed off two.
Australia's hopes for a tie were shattered by Shami, who knocked over Josh Inglis and off the penultimate delivery and sent Kane Richardson packing with a fiery yorker to bowl Australia out for 180.
Shami was an late inclusion; as a matter of fact a late replacement for Bumrah.
