Mohammad Shami Early life

Shami grew up in the village of Sahaspur in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh, one of five children. His father Tauseef Ali [c] was a farmer who had been a fast bowler in his youth; when Shami was 15, they took him to Badruddin Siddique, a cricket coach in Moradabad, a city 22 kilometers (14 miles) from his home.

“When I first saw him [Shami] bowling in the nets as a 15-year-old boy, I knew that this boy is not common. So I decided to train him. For a year I prepared him for the UP tests, since he There is no club cricket here. He was very cooperative, very regular and very hard working. He never took a day off from training. During the under 19 tests, he played very well, but due to politics, he missed out on the selection. They asked me to bring him next year, but at that time I didn’t want Shami to miss a year. So I advised his parents to send him to Calcutta.”

— Badruddin Siddique on Mohammed Shami
Shami worked hard on his technique during his time in Moradabad; after games, he would request used balls so he could develop the ability to reverse swing the older ball, a skill that would be integral to his success later in his career. However, he was not selected for the Uttar Pradesh under-19 squad, and later in 2005, Badruddin sent him to Kolkata to increase his chances of selection for a state squad. After playing for Dalhousie Athletic Club, he was recommended to Debabrata Das, a former Under-Secretary of the Bengal Cricket Association, who was impressed with Shami’s bowling and asked him to join his own club, Town Club. Das took Shami, who had nowhere to stay in Kolkata, to live with him. After bowling well for Town Club, Das asked one of the Bengal selectors, Sambaran Banerjee, to watch Shami bowl; Banerjee was impressed and selected him for the Bengal under-22 squad.

“Shami never wanted money. His goal was stumps, the sound made by hitting stumps. Since I saw him, most of his wickets were bowled. He plays with a vertical seam, on or just off the stump, and gets cut again”.

— Debabrata Das on Mohammed Shami
Shami later joined Mohun Bagan Cricket Club, one of the best teams in Bengal, to be considered for the all-state team selection. He threw former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly into the nets at Eden Gardens; Ganguly recommended him to the state selectors, and soon after, Shami was picked in the Bengal squad for the 2010-11 Ranji Trophy.
