Former cricketer Ramiz Raja has urged the Pakistan coaching staff about the careful management of the workload of Pakistan’s pacer Naseem Shah.
The 16-year-old pacer was taken off the field after finishing his hat-trick towards the end of day three of first Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh in Rawalpindi. Nevertheless, Pakistan were somewhat relieved after it was discovered that Naseem had avoided an injury alarm and will be able to bowl in the next few days.
Speaking in a YouTube video, the well-known commentator directed the young pacer to work on his fitness.
“Pakistan’s bowling attack is still developing. It is still not complete. Naseem Shah is young and he has already got injured, so Pakistan needs to figure out his workload,” Raja said. “Naseem will get wickets for Pakistan and create excitement but you have to be careful with him and play him in selective matches. Naseem still needs to work on his fitness.”
“Test cricket is not easy for any 16-year-old. So Pakistan think thank will have to decide between playing him in all formats or restricting him to just Test cricket,” he added.
