In this period, the 30-year-old has picked 180 Test wickets, 148 ODI wickets and 12 T20I wickets to his name.

Meanwhile, Team India is gearing up for the four-Test series against England which is scheduled to begin from February 5 in Chennai. Shami has not been included in the first two Tests as he continues to recover from the Adelaide injury.
