New Delhi, Jan 11: Shami Ahmed impressed the cricketing world with a fabulous performance on his ODI debut against Pakistan has been showered with wishes since then. Shami's childhood coach Badruddin Siddique lauded the youngster on his successful debut and said that it's his eye for perfection that puts him in a different league altogether.
Badruddin was all praise for the 22 year old, as he was impressed by Shami's sincerity and perfection.
"Shami always seeks perfection. Among the 250-odd students who I coached, his sincerity stands out. If I ask him to correct something in his game, he won't rest unless he gets it done.
The coach further added that Shami Ahmed's eye for perfection could also test one's patience.
In fact, there were times when I got irritated when he pestered me to watch every delivery that he bowled. Even if I had told him that he was doing it right, he would insist me to watch every delivery."
Coach Badruddin also hailed Shami Ahmed and said he was the most grounded student who never showed any attitude.
"He is the most obedient and humble lad. His is a family of farmers and they are financially well off. But I haven't seen him throw his weight around during practice. Unlike a lot of other boys, I have never seen him speak on cell phone during training sessions.
"He used to be very quiet before he shifted base to Kolkata. Once he started playing for Bengal, he has now learnt to open up a bit," said Badruddin.
