Pacer Naseem Shah joins Gloucester-shire


Gloucestershire engaged Pakistani pace bowler Naseem Shah for the “first few months” of the 2022 season, BBC reported on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old right-armer made his debut for Pakistan in 2019 and played nine Test matches so far. Against Sri Lanka in December 2019, he be-came the second youngest bowler in history to take a five-wicket haul in a Test innings, claiming 5-31.

Shah will be available to play in all formats up until the end of group stage of the T20 Vitality Blast. “I’m extremely happy to be joining Gloucester-shire and can’t wait to experience playing in English cricket for the first time,” Shah said. “I’m excited for what we can achieve as a team next season and will use all my skills to help Gloucestershire challenge for silverware across all formats.”Shah is Glouces-tershire’s fifth signing since the end of the 2021 season following Marcus Harris, Ajeet Singh Dale, Paul van Meekeren and Zafar Gohar.—APP
