Won’t let them dominate: Naseem on bowling to Root and Stokes

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s young pace sensation Naseem Shah, in an interview with Inews.co.uk on Tuesday, claimed that the Men in Green will not let the English batsmen dominate during their upcoming encounter. The 17-year-old praised batsmen Joe Root and Ben Stokes but claimed that he was not fearful of their skills. “Joe Root and Ben Stokes are two cricketers I rate highly, and it will be great to test myself against them. I respect good players, but I do not fear them. I will show them respect, but I will not let them dominate and I will not think that these guys are really good, world-class cricketers and that I should be concerned or worried about bowling to them,” Shah said.

“I want to leave England this summer having created an impression on the opposition batsmen and with the fans. At the moment, they won’t know who I am, but hopefully, by the end of the tour they will know all about me,” he added. The young pace sensation believed that it was vital to learn from the opposition in order to succeed at the highest level. “Learning from your own coaches and team-mates is vital, but I feel that watching the opposition bowlers and learning from them is almost equally as important,” he said. “I’ll be observing the English bowlers very closely, to see how they bowl in home conditions. I’m a big admirer of James Anderson who’s been such a brilliant bowler for so long. You don’t take hundreds of Test wickets without knowing what you are doing and to be around Anderson and have the opportunity to learn from him is something that I am not going to miss out on,” he added.
