The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was left raging after stories questioning the exactness of Pakistan’s 16-year-old pacer Naseem Shah’s age who has begun playing at international levels.
The PCB’s Chief Executive, Wasim Khan rubbished those all asserts about the youthful pacer fashioning his age.
“You only need to look at his face,” Khan told The Tonk according to Nine Network Australia.
“He’s hardly got any growth on his face. In terms of that, people question it no doubt, just because of his age and the fact that he’s a mature lad and the fact that he’s playing international cricket at this age.”
As former Indian cricketer, Mohammad Kaif has dig over Naseem’s age so CEO of PCB, Wasim has replied him and said that we really don’t care what India thinks about the matter.
“But the bottom line is he’s 16 years old and he’s playing. We don’t really care what India thinks,” he added.
Kaif replied a year old tweet by a sports journalist Saj Sadiq, in which Naseem was referenced as a 17-year-old pace bowler.
The former cricketer answered to the tweet with an agree at the believability of the youthful pacer’s age, since a year later Naseem’s authentic age is 16 as opposed to being 18.
Looks a terrific prospect. But is 16 now, aging backwards i think https://t.co/frlg06ZIFk
