Mujhe kabhi jalan nahi hoti: Mohammed Shami

The 33-year-old pacer said, "Mujhe kabhi jalan nahi hoti. Agar aap dusre ke success ko enjoy karna sikh loge toh much better player banoge aap. Main kuch nahi karta. Jo hai upar wala dene wala hai (I don't get jealous, if you are not enjoying others' success then you are not learning. I only believe in what the almighty plans for me)."

"Jab khel raha tha World Cup, toh 5 wickets liye, 4 wickets aur fir se 5 wickets liye. Kuch Pakistan ke players ko ye baat hajam nahi ho rahi toh mai kya karu. Kyuki unke dimaag mein ye hai ki ham best hai. Bhai best woh hota hai jo time per perform kare....aap usme controversy banaya chale ja rahe ho,,ki tumhe baal kuch aur colour ki mil rahi hai..kisi aur company ki mil rahi hai....Sudhar jao yaar."
