A day after his mother passed away, Pakistan’s Naseem Shah hit the Perth pitch hard and impressed everyone with his serious pace.

The Australia A batsmen were seen kneeling in front of Pakistan’s fast bowler, Nasim Shah. He bowled brilliantly and was seen swinging the bowl in both ways. Australia A batsmen were seen a little annoyed by his bowling.

Nasim Shah, with his fast bowling, troubled Australia A batsmen Morx Harris and Usman Khawaja in the match. Both these batsmen were facing a lot of trouble while facing Naseem’s bowling.

Since then Naseem Shah has been very popular on social media. A video of Naseem is also going viral on social media, in which Naseem bowled a short pitch ball to Khwaja. Naseem Shah took one wicket for 21 runs in eight overs in the last session of the match.

Just 16-year-old Nasim has been picked by Pakistan for his fast bowling for the tour of Australia. Naseem Shah made his first-class debut for Lahore in September last year. Naseem Shah has taken 26 wickets in six first-class cricket at an average of 16.50.

Shah, who was playing gully cricket till two years ago, has said he idolizes Shane Bond and Shoaib Akhtar. If he makes his debut in Australia, he will be the ninth youngest player in Test history and the youngest to feature in a Test on Australian soil.

Pakistan coach Misbah ul Haq said Naseem Shah could prove to be the surprise package in the tour of Australia.
