Pakistan is currently hosting England for seven match T20 series, in which they lost their first T20i match against England in Karachi on Tuesday. This series will help both teams to improve their performances just before ICC T20 World Cup. On Tuesday, they played their first match in Karachi, where England won the match by 6 wickets. Pakistani Bowler seemed off color as Nasheem Shah conceded 41 runs without taking any wicket in his quota of 4 overs, while another bowler Shahnawaz Dahani was also expensive and leaked runs with an economy rate of 11.40.
Earlier, Nasheem Shah performed very well in the Asia Cup 2022. He is a vital asset for the Pakistan team and the reliable bowler for them in the upcoming T20 World Cup. In his debut match against India, he took 2 wickets and in another high-voltage game against Afghanistan, he scored 12 runs in just two deliveries in the last over and grabbed the win from the opponent’s jaw.
Before the 1st T20 match against England, Former Pakistani Pacers Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis discuss the fast bowling sensation. In the discussion, Waqar Younis compared Young Pakistani pacer Nasheem Shah with Legend Australian pacer Dennis Lillee.
“If you look at the Pakistan fast bowling battery, a few are challenging the top seeds. When I first saw him, I felt Naseem was a finished product. A classic action gets into the crease very nicely. His opportunity came because Amir and Wahab pulled out just before the Australia tour, so we didn’t have a choice too. I thought, ‘just take some youngsters along,’” Waqar said
In the response, Wasim Akram also praised him and stated that his in-swinger deliveries are excellent. He is a big positive for Pakistan in the future.
“What I love about him is his follow-through. The way he bends down puts all the pressure on his front leg. An immaculate action that’s very important. His front arm is high; he gets out-swing because of that,” said Akram.
His brilliance at an early age is good for Pakistan team, and he will be a great player for Pakistan in the future.
