India's fast bowler Mohammed Shami shared an adorable video of his daughter dancing to a song in a shop. He shared the video on Instagram and promptly captioned it "My doll. Has much better dances skills than her father". He added the hashtags 'dance', 'futurestar' and 'india'.
In the video, the father-daughter duo appeared to be at an apparel store, when Shami's daughter began dancing. She is also trying to add expressions and seemingly choreographing her own dance steps. The video has clocked in more than 2,04,000 views on Instagram so far. Fans of the cricketer were extremely delighted to see the video and heaped positive comments. One user commented that she could be the next Bollywood star, while another user was thankful to him for choosing a Bhojpuri song. Many other users called the dance 'very cute'. Shami's colleague Khaleel Ahmed commented saying that he should learn some dancing from his daughter!
Shami is at the top of his game, with match-winning spells in ongoing South Africa's tour of India. Shami picked five wickets in the second innings of the first Test match, whereas in the second Test match, he has picked two wickets. His bowling has helped India stop the opposition team at crucial stages and also helped prevent any dangerous partnerships. Shami has played in 43 Test matches, picking 158 wickets with best figures of six wickets for fifty-six runs.
Shami's recent performances have been so good that he has earned applause not only from Indian cricketers and pundits but also from opposition players. Recently, South African captain Faf du Plessis said younger players could learn from the Indian fast bowler. He said, "There's a huge intensity about his bowling. You are going to bowl short spells in the heat but when you bowl you have to ensure that you bowl with a lot of intensity and maximize it. There is, in fact, a lot to learn from the lengths he bowled. He's a guy that hits the stumps a lot. That's something from a bowling point of view, we have to make sure, we are better at. In the first innings especially, we bowled wide and therefore they scored frequently square of the wicket. So there are a lot of lessons to learn."
