Naseem Shah has matched the records set by Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Amir.

Naseem Shah has joined an esteemed list of teenage fast bowlers who have achieved remarkable feats against Australia in Test cricket. He displayed exceptional skills in the ongoing third Test match, taking key wickets including that of Steven Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, and Nathan Lyon. With this performance, Naseem Shah has equaled the records set by two former Pakistani players, Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Amir.

Shahid Afridi, the renowned leg-spinner, became the first teenage Pakistani bowler to claim a five-wicket haul in a Test innings against Australia. He achieved this feat in his debut match at the National Stadium Karachi, taking five wickets for 52 runs in the first innings, although the match ended in a draw.

Mohammad Amir, the talented left-arm pacer, holds the record for being the only teenage Pakistani bowler to take at least four wickets in a Test innings against Australia on multiple occasions. He achieved this feat in three different Test matches. Amir’s first impressive performance came at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where he took 5/79. He then followed it up with a four-wicket haul at Leeds and another four-wicket haul at Lords during the 2016 series. In the third Test of that series, Amir once again showcased his skills, taking 4/97 at The GABBA in Brisbane.

Naseem Shah’s inclusion in this esteemed company highlights his immense talent and potential as a fast bowler. At a young age, he has already made a significant impact in international cricket and has the opportunity to further enhance his reputation as one of Pakistan’s finest prospects.
