18-year-old Naseem Shah picked up a five-wicket haul in Pakistan Super League (PSL) match against Karachi Kings on Saturday (January 29). The cricketer recently appeared on a talk show and shared his bowling techniques and plans and revealed his dream of a glorious future.

In conversation with Shafaat Ali on his YouTube show Standing at Silly with Shafaat Ali, Naseem while talking about the possibility of a hat-trick, said: “When I took two wickets and there was a chance of a third one, I tried my 100 per cent to get a T20 hat-trick but the ball went a little outside. I wanted to bowl an out-swing as I already took two slips and wanted a snick but due to less movement of ball, I missed it.”

While talking about his bowling techniques, Shah added: “We do plan in a meeting before match and we watch videos of different batsmen and bowling coaches and discuss what should be done for a specific batter. I also have a plan of my own. I don’t focus on their strengths, I just focus on my strengths. I have bowled according to my plan and Alhamdulillah I was successful”.


On a question about his future plan and who does he look up to, Shahid Afridi or Shoaib Akhtar, and who does he want to become like, Naseem said that he does not want to become like them in the future. He wants his name as big as them so people can take his name along with them. “I want to become like Naseem Shah and want my name as big as them,” he said.

Naseem picked up his first five-wicket haul in the PSL and the youngster continues to impress with his raw pace.
