Mumbai: Mohammed Shami’s sensational seven-wicket haul against New Zealand in the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 semi-final has left cricket fans in awe. However, the Indian pacer’s remarkable performance was eerily predicted by a Twitter user named Don Mateo, who posted a tweet on November 14 claiming to have dreamt of Shami’s stellar performance.
The tweet, which has garnered over 1.9 million views, has gone viral, adding to the mystique surrounding Shami’s incredible bowling display.

Fans have expressed their amazement at Mateo’s uncanny prediction, with some jokingly requesting him to dream about their future and others urging him to “sleep well on November 18,” alluding to India’s World Cup 2023 final match scheduled for November 19.
Shami’s outstanding performance in the semi-final not only secured India’s spot in the final but also made him the fastest bowler to achieve a 50-wicket haul in World Cup history. He is also the first Indian to accomplish this feat, adding to his impressive tally of four five-wicket hauls in World Cup matches.
As cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the outcome of the second semi-final match between Australia and South Africa, India is poised to face the winning team in the World Cup final at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on November 19.
