- Naseem Shah recently made his T20I debut in Asia Cup 2022
After making his debut for Pakistan as a 16-year-old back in 2019, Naseem Shah has come quite some way in international cricket. Recently, he made his T20I debut in the Asia Cup 2022 match against India, where he dismissed KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. He also had a chance to get rid of Virat Kohli, but Fakhar Zaman dropped a simple catch in the slip cordon.
In the meantime, Naseem’s younger brother, Hunain Shah, made his T20 debut in the ongoing National T20 Cup. While playing for Central Punjab in their match against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa at Multan Cricket Stadium, the speedster finished with impressive figures of 4-0-28-2.
Although it was Faizan Khan, who won the Player of the Match award for his 36-ball 72, Hunain grabbed the limelight with his accuracy and speed. The right-arm pacer got the wickets of Mohammad Sarwar and Maaz Khan.
On the back of his spell, Central Punjab beat Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by 25 runs to register their second win in the tournament. Despite the win, CP stayed at the bottom of the table with a net run rate of -0.630.
KP, on the other hand, are sitting pretty on top of the points table with five wins and a net run rate of 0.299.

As far as Naseem is concerned, after performing against India, he did well against Hong Kong. Riding on his stupendous spells of bowling, Pakistan advanced to the final of Asia Cup 2022 where they lost to Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Pakistan are yet to name their squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, but after how he performed in the Asia Cup, Naseem Shah is most likely to be picked for the mega event in Australia.
