Pakistan emerging fast bowling duo of Shaheen Shah Afridi and Naseem Shah will not participate in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy final at National Stadium in Karachi.
Pakistan cricket team management has decided to rest both the bowlers ahead of Bangladesh series in Pakistan scheduled in January.
Shaheen and Naseem are representing Northern Punjab and Central Punjab in Quaid-e-Azam trophy respectively. Both the bowlers recently shined in the second Test against Sri Lanka where they took their first wicket-haul. Naseem became the youngest ever to claim a five-wicket haul.
It must be noted that the final between Central Punjab and Northern Punjab will start at National Stadium in Karachi from tomorrow.
