Almost regularly, spectacular pacers rise out of Pakistan. Regardless of their young age, the Pakistan team management has not avoided allowing teens an opportunity at the senior level.
Naseem Shah is a member of that group. The 19-year-old pacer made his Test debut in 2019. Recently, he made an imprint in the Asia Cup.
He was intrigued with his bowling as well as with the bat as well. Pakistan men’s group bowling trainer Shaun Tait said he is extremely dazzled with Shah’s progress.
“Pakistan fast bowlers have their natural abilities. They like to keep things simple but they’ve got so much ability and have a lot of flairs. So, that’s already ingrained in these guys,”Shaun Tait was quoted as by Cricket Pakistan.
“In some ways, he reminds me of myself when I was a younger cricketer. He’s sort of free-spirited. But I wasn’t as intelligent. I think you’ve all seen his natural abilities and skill with the new ball.”
On Haris Rauf’s improvement and consistency, he said:
“The only thing that we’ve been talking together about is the consistency I suppose that showed in the Asia Cup, that’s it.”
“He’s got the pace, he’s got the swing, he’s got the aggression, all that stuff and we just talked about being more consistent in his areas and bowling in the right areas that were going to make it difficult for the batsman and be more consistent doing that. We worked and we talked about his death bowling a lot and worked on his death bowling as well but they’re just the usual things,”Tait added.
The upcoming T20 World Cup will be played in Australia, starting from October 23. Pakistan will open its tournament campaign against India on October 23. The fans are eagerly waiting for the clash while all eyes will be on Babar Azam’s and Virat Kohli’s form.
