In the press conference attended by Pakistan’s bowling coach, Shaun Tait, he was nothing short of compliments for Naseem Shah. “In some ways, Naseem Shah reminds me of myself when I was a younger cricketer. He’s sort of free-spirited. But I wasn’t as intelligent as he is at this age. I think you’ve all seen his natural abilities and skill with the new ball, which is excellent,” said Shaun Tait.
Naseem Shah is a special talent: Shaun Tait
Furthermore, he discussed the fast bowling lineup of the team. “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 flair. So, that’s already ingrained in these guys,” he added.
Naseem Shah has just proven to be impressive for his side. The 19-year-old bowler made his T20I debut in the tournament. However, in the 50 T20s he has been in the team, the bowling has 51 wickets to his name with the best spell of 5/20. The pitches in Australia are generally useful for the fast bowlers. With Shaheen Afridi coming back for the World Cup, the bowling lineup with the likes of Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Rauf and others look well balanced.
The seven games will be played in 2 locations namely Karachi and Lahore. Jos Buttler the captain will be unable for at least 2 games in Karachi. In his absence, all-rounder Moeen Ali will lead the side. Jos Buttler incurred a calf injury and was on advisory rest before the start of the T20 World Cup. Moeen Ali the stand-in captain has a Pakistan origin and is delighted to lead the side in Pakistan.
