Sri Lanka fast bowlers ‘not easy’ in Asia Cup 2023, says Naseem Shah


In the Asia Cup 2023 match in Kandy, Pakistani fast bowlers once again proved how good they are by destroying India’s entire batting line-up. India is probably the Men in Green’s toughest opponent because they are their biggest cricket rival, so this was a big deal. Even though it rained several times at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium last Saturday, the Indians were all out for 266.

The fast bowlers on the national team took all of their wickets. But Pakistan’s young seamer Naseem Shah says that the fast bowlers are having a hard time with the current weather in Sri Lanka. It should be mentioned that the cities in Sri Lanka hosting the Asia Cup are currently getting a lot of rain.

The young player said those things on Tuesday when talking to reporters in Lahore about how the team was getting ready for tomorrow’s game. The match will be against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, or Bangladesh. He also said everyone is doing their best to get better and stay ready for the game.

He said he wanted Pakistan to get to the finals, regardless of who they would play. After the Saturday match between Babar Azam’s team and the Men in Blue, the 20-year-old pacer talked about how it felt to bowl Indian hitters in his first-ever one-day international match. Naseem, one of the most thrifty bowlers in the world and in the Asian event that is going on right now, talked about his first 50-over match against the two teams that hate each other the most.

Official Statement

“The whole team is taking care of themselves as there is a lot of traveling, and the weather is hot here [Pakistan] and there [Sri Lanka] as well,” he said.

When asked by reporters about the team’s expected face-off with arch-rivals India yet again, the pacer said: “Currently the focus is on tomorrow’s match. We will see when there is a match with India.”

“It was a wonderful experience, I bowled very well. You know the one-day format is different than T20, I have played T20I against them,” said the pacer with the best economy rate (3.83) among the Pakistani bowlers.

He added that one needs to bowl with patience in ODIs. “In the early stages, ball seam and swing movement were helping but you can just do your best and bowl at good lengths, that is what I did,” Shah said.
