New Delhi: Mohammed Shami might not have been a part of the playing XI when Delhi Daredevils thrashed Rising Pune Supergiant by 97 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, their biggest win. But Shami showed on Thursday that he is having a blast with the team as he posted a photo from the airport in Pune.

Waiting in the lobby, Shami clicked a selfie just to keep the memory of a comprehensive win the team registered in the city on Tuesday night.

Shami has not found a place in the team with Rahul Dravid and skipper Zaheer Khan opting for Chris Morris and Pat Cummins as pace options apart from Zaheer himself lending support to the duo.
Delhi have got their campaign back on track after losing the first game against RCB by 15 runs. They thrashed Pune by 97 runs as Sanju Samson hit his maiden IPL ton and Morris played a cameo in the death. They are seated in fourth place with a net run-rate of +2.050.

Even though the team has missed the services of JP Duminy — out due to personal reasons — Quinton De Kock — injured — and opener Shreyas Iyer — down with pox, the team has done really well after the loss in the opening game to RCB. In fact, pundits have time and again said that along with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi have the best bowling attack in the tournament.
