Naseem Shah’s epic performance during the second One-Day International (ODI) between Pakistan and Afghanistan drove fans into a frenzy, as celebrations erupted across the nation.

For the young cricketer, however, the performance was bittersweet. He dedicated his victory to his mother, who passed away in 2019, just one day before the young cricketer appeared for his first Test match in Australia, when he was 16.

In a clip going viral on the internet, the cricket star could be heard saying:


“All I will say is that I wish my mother was alive today and she could see this.”

The Pakistani pacer previously revealed to Samaa that he went under severe grief after his mother passed away and had to take medication, adding that it is difficult to talk about his mother’s memories.
