Indian fast bowler, Mohammed Shami, has responded to the controversial allegations made by former Pakistan cricketer, Hasan Raza, in which he claimed that the Indian bowlers are getting different balls, and urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to inspect the balls used by the Rohit Sharma-led side.

"We are seeing that when they are batting, they bat really well, and suddenly the ball starts doing things when India bowls. There have been 7-8 close DRS calls that have gone in their favour. The way Siraj and Shami were swinging the ball, it seemed like the ICC or the BCCI were giving them different and suspicious balls in the second innings. There needs to be an inspection of the ball. There could also be an extra layer of coating on the ball for swing," Raza had said.

The aforementioned statement by Raza was also criticised by former Pakistan great Wasim Akram. 

"I've been reading about this for the last two days. I want to have the same thing these guys are having, sounds like fun. Mind is not there. You are not only embarrassing yourself but us too," Akram had said in response to Raza's statement.

In his latest Instagram story, Shami wrote, "Feel shame, and focus on the game. Enjoy other's success. This is an ICC event not some local tournament. Even your own former player Wasim bhai (Wasim Akram) had explained it to you. Atleast have trust in your own player Wasim Akram. "
