While he knows only one player from England’s team – Test captain and skipper Joe Root – from the test squad, Naseem Shah does not want the other team to think that he is just a little child.

“If they treat me like a small kid, it will be their big loss,” the young pacer stated. “Age doesn’t matter, it’s my bowling that matters – so they need to take me seriously.”

He will most likely be paired with Shaheen Shah Afridi, who has been playing in all formats since 2018.
