17-year-old young fast bowler Nasim Shah made his Test debut against Australia last year.

 

He achieved the distinction of being the youngest bowler to have done so in Tests by taking 5 wickets against Sri Lanka first in Karachi and then a huge hat-trick against Bangladesh.

 

Naseem’s bowler partner Shaheen Shah Afridi, who got the most Test wickets from Pakistan last season, has been promoted in the A category.

 

Shaheen has taken a total of 18 Tests and two T20 wickets and has been named in the A category alongside Test captain Azhar and ODI captain Babar.
