UP Government Plans Mini Stadium in Mohammed Shami’s Village Following World Cup Heroics

After a stellar performance by Indian pacer Mohammed Shami in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 semifinal against New Zealand, the Uttar Pradesh government is set to construct a mini-stadium and an open gym in Shami’s hometown of Sahaspur Alinagar. This initiative is a tribute to Shami’s outstanding contribution to Team India’s journey to the World Cup final.

The decision to build the sports facilities in Shami’s village came on the directive of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, highlighting the government’s recognition of the cricketer’s exceptional achievements. District Magistrate Rajesh Tyagi announced the proposal, emphasizing the aim to establish a mini-stadium and an open gym in Sahaspur Alinagar.

In a notable display of support, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) party leader Jayant Singh expressed his commitment to provide MPLAD funds to facilitate the construction of a sports facility in Shami’s village. Singh’s advocacy further underlines the widespread acknowledgment and appreciation for Shami’s remarkable performance in the World Cup.

Mohammed Shami has been a standout player in the ICC World Cup 2023, showcasing lethal skills that have significantly contributed to India’s success. With 23 wickets in six matches at an impressive average of 9.13 and a strike rate of 10.91, Shami stands as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far. His standout performance in the semifinal, where he secured seven crucial wickets, played a pivotal role in India’s victory.

As India gears up to face five-time champions Australia in the high-voltage World Cup 2023 final at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium on November 19, Shami’s village can anticipate the development of sports facilities in recognition of the cricketing sensation’s extraordinary achievements on the global stage.
