New Delhi: Don’t understand MS Dhoni by listening to MS. Here MS means two different bowlers. One is Mohammed Shami and the other is Mohit Sharma. But in our story MS are Mohit and Shami. Yes, two fast bowlers of Gujarat Titans, who introduced their mettle against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a unique way and added a playoff ticket to the team’s name.
If one dealt with the top order of Sunrisers alone, the other looked at the middle order to lower order batsmen. The aim of both was the same, so there was a lot of co-ordination. Due to this, both became the strength of their team and managed to dismiss 8 batsmen of SRH.

When Mohit and Shami say ‘MS’
Both Mohit and Shami shared 4-4 wickets out of 8 wickets. Mohammed Shami took 4 wickets for 21 runs in 4 overs against SRH. So Mohit Sharma took 4 wickets for 28 runs in 4 overs. Meaning, both of them together gave only 49 runs to Sunrisers Hyderabad and took 8 wickets.
Shaandaar Shami told Mohit’s variation amazing
On this success in bowling, Shami said that this is the result of good line length. He also praised his partner Mohit Sharma and said that the cleverness with which he uses his variations in the middle overs is of great benefit.
Hardik Pandya ready to give full credit to the success of ‘MS’
Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya also tied the pool of praise for Mohit and Shami. In his praise, he said that bowlers have always been close to my heart because I am the bowling captain. Sometimes the batsmen get too much credit. But I always try that the bowlers should also get full credit for what they have done.
