Naseem holds back tears in emotional press conference

Naseem holds back tears in emotional press conference

Naseem Shah became the youngest fast bowler to complete a five-wicket haul in Test cricket after recording the feat in the second innings of the Karachi Test against Sri Lanka. Playing a pivotal role in Pakistan’s series-clinching win over the tourists, Naseem’s figures of 5/31 helped him overtake Mohammad Amir’s achievement to claim this record.

While reveling in his brilliant bowling display, Naseem got a bit emotional during the press conference after leading his team to victory. The 16-year-old remembered his deceased mother during the media interaction and briefly got teary-eyed.

The exciting speedster’s mother passed away while he was accompanying his side for the Australia tour last month. He said he would have dedicated the match-winning spell to her had she been alive today.
