Hafeez requests PCB to bench Naseem Shah for U-19 World cup


Pakistan former captain Mohammad Hafeez has suggested Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and junior selection committee not to send emerging fast-bowler Naseem Shah to play under-19 world cup which will be held in South Africa from January 17th to February 9th, 2020.

All-rounder took to twitter to address his concern and added that the 16-year-old has already played international cricket and now the main focus should be to work hard technically and physically to get better at this level.


He concluded on a point that it would be fruitful to send someone else in place of him in the squad.

Naseem broke the record of becoming the youngest fast bowler to pick a five-wicket haul in Test cricket. He grabbed 5-31 against Sri Lanka in Karachi.

Earlier today he reached to career-best 79th position in ICC Test bowler rankings.
