Pakistan’s fast bowler Naseem Shah created history during the opening ODI against New Zealand at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi on Monday.
The 19-year-old has set a new world record by taking 15 wickets in his first four One Day Internationals (ODIs). This achievement surpasses the previous record of 14 wickets, held by Ryan Harris and Gary Gilmour.
According to Geo Super, Naseem Shah has started the home series versus New Zealand with a five-wicket haul. With impressive numbers of 5 for 57, Naseem Shah’s tally of ODI wickets reached 15 which is the most number of wickets taken by any bowler after playing only four ODI matches.
Naseem’s 15 wickets also include two consecutive fifers. His impressive performance has garnered praise from cricket fans and experts on social media.
During the series against New Zealand, Pakistan has a chance to surpass New Zealand as the world’s best ODI team.
If Pakistan whitewashes New Zealand 3-0 during the three-match series, it can jump to the number one spot in the rankings with 114 rating points.
