The young gun pulled off a miraculous spell of bowling during the 1st Test match against Bangladesh. On the dying 3rd day of the Test match, Naseem came from nowhere and rattled the Bangladeshi batting line-up.
He dismissed Najmul Hossain, Taijul Islam, and Mahmudullah on the 3 consecutive deliveries and registered a Test hat-trick. Naseem’s sensational spell of bowling ended Pakistan’s 18-year drought of Test hat-tricks. Naseem Shah broke Alok Kapali’s record of taking a hat-trick at the age of 19.
