While talking via teleconference on Wednesday, the 20-year-old bowler expresses his gratitude towards Pakistan’s cricket team and tell how lucky he feels to represent Pakistan at such a young age.

Shaheen said,

“My performances have been good in the last two-Test series and will look to maintain consistency on England tour. The cricketing world remembers by performances in the longer format of the game and my goal is the same.”

On an inexperienced bowling line-up, Shaheen believes that the 29-player squad has experienced bowlers and also has a big name for bowling coach Waqar Younis.

“We have Wahab Riaz, Imran Khan SR, Sohail Khan, Mohammad Abbas,and have great Waqar with us. We have been playing with this bowling attack for quite some time now,” Afridi added.

Promoted to category A in PCB’s contract list, Shaheen is not at all worried about playing without spectators. He said,

“We have played PSL and in UAE without fans, so we will look to entertain them at their homes.”

It is pertinent to mention here that Shaheen made his debut for Pakistan in 2018. Till now he has played 39 international matches and has 86 wickets currently.
