The star Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami is set to receive a prestigious Arjuna Award for his sensational performance in 2023. The experienced bowler was a leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded ICC ODI World Cup 2023 with 24 wickets in just seven innings and is the only cricketer among 26 athletes to receive an award in 2023.

Arjuna Award, India’s second-highest sporting honour, is given for outstanding performance in Sports and Games. Shami enjoyed a sensational year as he spearheaded the Indian bowling attack during the team’s dominant road to the World Cup final. 

The 33-year-old right-arm pacer from Uttar Pradesh mainly dominated ODI cricket with 43 wickets in just 19 innings and also provided consistently impressive performances in red-ball cricket. Shami played a crucial role in India’s becoming no.1 ICC team across all three formats this year.
