Faisal Iqbal: Naseem Shah will be the leading wicket-taker against England
“InshAllah he will be the leading wicket-taker on this series! He’s definitely learning to make bunnies. May Allah bless him to work harder and reach further heights and protect him from bad people in [the] cricketing world!” Faisal said on Twitter.
The bowler has never failed to impress the management as his performances, up till now, are remarkable. The young man has also marked records in the test cricket.
He has claimed a hat-trick in second innings of the third day of the match against Bangladesh in February 2020 and became the youngest bowler to claim this exceptional piece of the milestone.
Notably, the previous unbroken record of Abdul Razzaq was broken by this young sensation so-called Naseem Shah last year. Abdul Razzaq took his hat-trick against Sri Lanka in 2000 when he was twenty years old. Naseem, crossing his record, has made it possible in the very young age of almost 17.
However, this wasn’t the first bigger achievement for his as he has got five-wicket haul in the previously conducted match against Sri Lanka which had made him the youngest bowler for picking up the relevant milestone.
