Disgraceful Indian cricketer tried to mock and ridicule young Pakistani cricketer Naseem Shah
ISLAMABAD - Disgraceful Indian cricket tried to mock and ridicule young Pakistani cricketer Naseem Shah.
Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif on Friday took a dig at Pakistan’s 16-year-old pacer Naseem Shah’s age. Kaif quoted a year old tweet in which Naseem was mentioned as a 17-year-old pace bowler.
The former cricketer replied to the tweet with a jibe at the credibility of the young pacer’s age, since a year later Naseem’s official age is 16 instead of being 18.
“Looks a terrific prospect. But is 16 now, aging backwards i think,” Kaif tweeted.
Naseem looked impressive on debut for Pakistan in the ongoing first Test against Australia at the Gabba, Brisbane.
The young pacer regularly bowled at over 145 kilometres (90 miles) per hour, but was guilty of overstepping the mark on a number of occasions, despite not being called by the umpire.
