PCB withdraws Naseem Shah from Pakistan U19 World Cup squad

Jan 01, 2020 17:39 IST

The Pakistan Cricket Board has withdrawn the name of 16-year-old fast-bowler Naseem Shah from the upcoming U19 World Cup squad and named Mohammad Wasim Jr as his replacement. PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan said in a statement that the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup is a stepping stone for future stars and a platform for budding youngsters to graduate to international cricket. Naseem has recently broken that glass ceiling and has established his credentials as an international cricketer. Naseem made his Test debut for Pakistan in the recently concluded series against Australia and will be available for selection for the home series against Bangladesh.
