Shami's family were also jubilant with his historic feat in ODI. In his ancestral home in Amroha (Moradabad, UP), Shami's elder brother and his relatives celebrated Team India's win over Afghanistan and the celebration was doubled as their local boy played a significant role in the team's victory.

Shami's brother revealed they were initially tensed as the match but Shami emerged as the gamechanger was the icing in the cake. They were disheartened that Shami missed the first few games but were extremely proud of him as he announced his arrival in grand style.
