Karachi: Former cricketer Shoiab Akhtar picked up young pacer Naseem Shah as his bowling partner in Dream Pairs series, an initiative by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to engage cricketers in the ongoing lockdown phase.
In a video released by the PCB on Monday, Akhtar highly rated Shah and wants him as a bowling partner from the current lot. “Naseem Shah is a fast bowler who can replicate my attitude, I would have made a fine pair with him,” said Akhtar.
The cricketer-turned-Youtuber wished to have bowled with former captain Imran Khan. “Among former greats, I would have loved to have bowled with Imran Khan with both him and I at our career peaks,” Akhtar added.
It must be noted here that PCB launched an activity named ‘Digital Pairs series’ to engage Test cricketer in the current situation.
