Indian bowler, Mohammed Shami's struggle story is one of the best tales of triumph that we have seen for a long time in world cricket. From being coached by Badruddin Siddique at the age of 15 to becoming the highest wicket-taker for India in the World Cup, Mohammed Shami is a generational talent. Despite having a lot of troubles with injuries and a lot of disturbance in his personal life, Shami made a thunderous comeback in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.
The right-arm pacer, Mohammed Shami made a wildcard entry into the team after Hardik Pandya suffered an injury in India's match against Bangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The bowler was in India's World Cup squad but got the chance to show his prowess in India's crucial clash against New Zealand at Dharamshala. The first-change bowler took five wickets for a mere 55 runs and stunned the entire cricket world.
The 33-year-old Indian bowler, Mohammed Shami is indeed one of the biggest success stories in the history of Indian cricket. While it's a treat for Indians to watch Shami breaking wickets in almost every game, he has been labelled as a 'nightmare for the opposition' as he is just getting started with the best form of his life.
While Mohammed Shami's impressive cricket has been the talk of the town, we will look at his lifestyle, which also needs some limelight. Although he prefers to keep his personal life hidden from the shutterbugs, here are some juicy details about Mohammed Shami's lifestyle that every cricket fanatic should know about. So, without further ado, let's get started!
The ace Indian bowler, Mohammed Shami is one of the most humble cricketers in the world of cricket. Despite owning some of the most extravagant things, Shami never misses a chance to impress everyone with his humility. Talking about his expensive purchases, Mohammed Shami is a proud owner of a magnificent farmhouse spanning around 150 bighas in Uttar Pradesh's Amroha.
As per multiple reports, it was back in 2015 when Mohammed Shami acquired the plot with a vision to construct an opulent abode named Hasin Farmhouse. Well, after years of construction, Shami's dream bungalow was ready, and if the reports are to be believed, it is valued at around the mammoth sum of Rs. 12-15 crores.
Whether we talk about the grandeur of Mohammed Shami's farmhouse or the amenities that he has installed, Shami's luxurious bungalow is purely a work of art. It was due to the COVID-19 lockdown that his fans got the chance to get some mere glimpses of his bungalow. The farmhouse was handy for many cricket sessions for Shami and his cricketer friends, Suresh Raina, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and many others. The cricketer prefers not to flaunt his expensive bungalow on social media as he loves keeping things low-profile.
Mohammed Shami is an extremely private person, as he rarely opens up about his likes and dislikes in his interviews. No matter how candid the conversation is, Shami is extremely shy when opening up about his desires and wishes. However, one thing which is quite known about him is his love for cars. The cricketer is an avid car lover, and one look at his stellar car collection explains it all.
After a stellar display of his bowling prowess in India's tour of England in 2022, Mohammed Shami purchased a Jaguar F-type to celebrate his performance. For the unversed, the cricketer splashed almost Rs. 98.13 lakh to get the keys to the swanky car. Apart from having a super-expensive car like Jaguar F-type, Mohammed Shami also owns a BMW 5 series worth Rs. 65 lakhs, an Audi worth Rs. 43 lakhs, and a Toyota Fortuner worth Rs. 33 lakhs. Well, Shami's exquisite car collection indeed speaks volumes about his love for the four-wheelers.
According to a series of media reports, Mohammed Shami is reportedly on a Grade A contract with the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). It means Shami's annual salary is Rs. 5 crore. For the unversed, Indian cricketers like Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Rishabh Pant, and Ravichandran Ashwin are also on Grade A contracts with the BCCI.
Talking about IPL (Indian Premier League), Mohammed Shami plays for Gujarat Titans. The Indian bowler has been a part of the IPL for some years now and has played for teams like Punjab Kings, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Delhi Capitals. However, Shami's IPL journey took an exciting turn during the 2022 auction when Gujarat Titans made a noteworthy bid of Rs 6.25 crores and included the player in their team. The ace bowler has repaid the team owners' confidence in him and played a critical part in their last two seasons.
Apart from playing cricket for the Indian cricket team and Gujarat Titans, Mohammed Shami is also one of the most active cricketers when it comes to brand endorsements. Time and again, we have seen him collaborating with a series of brands and dropping pictures from the same on his Instagram handle. The cricketer is associated with renowned brands like Blitzpools, Nike, OctaFX, and many more. Courtesy of all these things, Mohammed Shami's net worth is estimated to be around the sum of Rs. 45 crores.
