Naseem Shah, a prominent Pakistani bowler, has commented on the crucial moments in the second Test match in Karachi versus New Zealand. Abrar Ahmed was too cocky when entering the crease as the penultimate man, according to Naseem as he reflected on their critical partnership.
The 19-year-old pacer continued by saying that Southee informed him that he wears spectacles and will not be able to see the ball in the dark.
“Abrar Ahmed entered with panache, as though he were Imran Khan. I discovered this guy has self-assurance,” Naseem Shah continued.
In addition, Abrar thanked Naseem for giving him encouragement at a pivotal point in the series-deciding match, saying, “Naseem urged me to believe in yourself.”
The 24-year-old continued by claiming that Naseem had given him the reassurance that he could manage the situation after seeing him in the nets taking spinners.
Given that I am a leg-spinner myself and can read the googly and flipper, Naseem instructed me to face the leg-spinner. He made the choice to bowl the off-spinner,” said Abrar.
It is important to note that the second Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand ended with an emotional victory. Both games finished in draws, therefore the teams divided the winnings.
The three-match ODI series, which will begin on January 9 in Karachi, will now pit the two cricket-playing nations against one another.
