Pakistani and their obsession with age. Even in normal discussions  they use word such as only 16 only 18. I think they are best in age fudging. Bloddy that grown ass Shadab is still 20 while he clearly look around Agrwal or Rahul's age.

 

 

Their lives begin at puberty.

Bro what is your obsession with his age :confused:

Because it is fraud. If he came through the junior cricket system having an unfair advantage over his peers that amounts to cheating.

 

We have pointed out the shady ages of some of our own players . However atleast someone born in the 80s in a remote area  before things were totally computerized in the sc, may get the benefit of doubt but 16 years means this guy was born in 2003. What’s his excuse? It is deliberate fraud.

Did you watch the interview I posted ?

 

He was born in Lower Dir (mountainous Taliban land) his father did not let him play cricket and he snuck out and played tape ball. He got noticed and eventually was sent to Lahore academy at a disadvantage because of not playing proper cricket before.

 

He has hopped huge hurdles and the possible fact that he a few years older than his stated age means little to his incredible story.

It is not his fault. The PCB is usually synonymous with letting players with dodgy ages play for a few years now. Afghanistan well makes sense because of the lack of system what is Pakistan’s excuse?

Naseem bowling 140 k to 148 k in his first 4 overs.

 

Has a decent bouncer.  

 

Has not bowled the good length ball that well yet ... and has not moved the ball much yet, partly due to the conditions.

 

Impressive prospect, although not as impressive as those YouTube videos.

Whatever the jokes we make about his age he is at max 20-21 and doesn’t have FC experience and playing his first test. Given that very impressive

Saw bits looks really good.

If only Pakistani has used their brains and kept an experienced bowler who could guide him on field. 

They don’t have proper seniors bowlers. Who will guide him an entitled ex-fixer with a lazy work ethic? A brainless bowler who has pace but is inconsistent?  Then there is Afridi who himself is a kid. The rest themselves are playing for their spot.

So he is 16 for last three years. Search some more. He may be 16 since 2013.

 

Most likely.

 

He looks and seems to be 21 or 22.
