South African Captain Aiden Markram Impresses With Bowling Performance, Shamsi Hails Contribution

South African skipper Aiden Markram showcased his bowling prowess during a crucial T20 World Cup match, drawing praise from his teammate Tabraiz Shamsi.

The Proteas secured a semi-final berth after a hard-fought victory over the West Indies by 3 wickets (DLS) at the iconic Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua on Monday.

Markram’s impactful performance included dismissing the dangerous Nicholas Pooran on the first ball of his spell, ending with figures of 4-0-28-1.

Shamsi lauded Markram’s bowling skills, emphasizing that the captain’s capabilities surpass that of a part-time spinner.

Shamsi, who received the Player of the Match award for his 3-wicket haul, expressed how Markram’s bowling display boosted the team’s confidence.

Reflecting on Markram’s under-utilized bowling talent, Shamsi mentioned that Markram often bowls less when leading the team, despite his proficiency in the bowling department.

Markram, having bowled a total of 8 overs in the T20 World Cup 2024, has stood out with 2 wickets at an impressive economy rate of 6.62.
