    "I want to become one of the top 3 bowlers in the world" : Naseem Shah

    Pakistan's 17-year-old fast-bowling sensation Naseem Shah warned England on Wednesday not to underestimate him in the upcoming Test series, saying it would be their "big loss" if they do.

    Shah has risen to phenomenal heights in international cricket since making his debut last year aged 16, and will be Pakistan's key bowler in the three-Test series starting August 5.

    During December's series against Sri Lanka, he became the youngest fast bowler to take a five-wicket haul in Test cricket, at age 16 years and 311 days.

    Shah said that while he only knows the name of one England player -- skipper Joe Root -- from the test squad, the team should not take him lightly.

    "If they treat me like a small kid, it will be their big loss," Shah told reporters.

    "Age doesn't matter, it's my bowling that matters -- so they need to take me seriously."

    Pakistan's squad is set to fly to England at the end of the month and will spend 14 days in mandatory quarantine before starting practice in "bio-secure" facilities.

    Shah is likely to pair with Shaheen Shah Afridi, the 6-foot, 6-inch paceman who now plays for Pakistan in all three cricketing formats since making his debut in 2018.

    Full quotes from press conference:

    "I aim to keep learning, this is my first tour and I will try to learn from the seniors. We will also see how the players deal with the situation in the WI series and that should help us.

    (Do you think they will take you lightly and think of you as a kid?) "It's good for me if they think of me as a kid. I will try to make sure that if they think I am of me as a kid then it will be to their loss.

    "I always try hard with my bowling and I will try to bowl well in England and gain experience and learn on the tour.

    "Shaheen was a year senior to me in U19 and I did play alongside him. We bowled together in the nets and we are friends so we used to discuss a lot. He came in the team before me and performed well. When I came in the team then we already had a bit of a combination going and we already discuss plans with each other. The combination is naturally made.

    "We have seen videos of the England batsmen. But I think targeting one batsman doesn't serve the purpose because 1 wicket is 1, if you get 5 wickets then you get a number of different batsmen. Every bowler wants to take 5 wickets in every innings. For any batsman, my aim will be to get him out.

    "If you target one batsman then you lose sight of the others. Of course, you enjoy getting the best batsmen out but the target is always to get 5 wickets in each innings.

    "I don't set very long term targets. Of course it is in my mind that I want to be among the world's top 3 bowlers but I look at it match by match and series by series. I want to be the best bowler in the series and perform well in each match. I am fit for all 3 formats and I am hopeful of performing well for Pakistan and having a good career due to which people remember me positively.

    "Speed is very beneficial for fast-bowlers, especially for reverse swing etc. But we will go there and see the conditions and adapt accordingly. I am watching videos of cricket in England also.

    "Fast-bowlers enjoy it when they have speed and aggression. Any batsmen whether Indian, English, or Australian, you don't think about how big a batsman he is but you focus on your bowling. If you focus on the batsman then you can lose your potency so you should be positive and focus on your strengths. I go to the ground reading the kalima and I don't worry about the batsmen, I believe in Allah and give mt 100% effort.

    "I am training hard and I do feel that it will improve my speed but I am also focused on improving my line and length. Besides that, I am also focusing on my outswing etc., all this happens in training. I am hopeful that I can also improve my speed in future.

    "You need fitness to play all 3 formats. In Tests, you need to bowl for a long time so if you can do that then the other formats seem easier. If your fitness is bad then you'll struggle in all formats. I do speak to our legend bowlers about these things and I am working on them and trying to learn from others about how I should manage myself.

    "Pakistan has had many legend fast-bowlers and I always try to learn from them. I am hopeful that I will keep improving and keep performing well and become one of the top 3 bowlers in the world.

    "Of course, the stronger team you play against, the more focused you need to be and the more you try to perform well. England and Australia tours are tough. We will try to go there and perform well. If we think that they are a big team etc., it can harm us. We have good players too and it should be a good series, we've performed well in the past too.

    "Fast-bowlers get injured but you need courage to bounce back and recover and bowl again. I will focus on improving my fitness and even if I do get injured then I will fight back and try to do well and play for Pakistan.

    (Can you name some of England's top batsmen?) "England have Joe Root, I can't remember the names of their other batsmen properly. I don't know them properly, I know who is a good batsman etc., I don't know their full names properly. Morgan is there, I don't know his first name properly. Ben Stokes is also there, a very good performer.

    "When I came to cricket, I didn't know about spikes etc. We didn't know about injuries and all. So we try to keep learning. I will closely watch the WI series and learn and take notice of how players deal with the new rules due to coronavirus.

    "From the videos I have seen of bowlers like Anderson and Broad, you need to bowl a little fuller in England. In Pakistan, you can't bowl too full so you have to adjust for different places. You bowl differently in Australia and elsewhere. We will go there and play practice matches and try to find the right length with the help of Waqar bhai and the other senior bowlers.

    "Since my childhood I have bowled with a similar action. You do have to make some changes and Waqar bhai has discussed with me about that. My leg used to collapse a bit so I straightened that. I have focused on improving myself. If you make a big change to your natural action then the speed etc. can be compromised. If my action puts load on my back then I am working hard on strengthening my back also. So I talk about all these things with Waqar bhai."

    So he doesnít know the name of any English batsman except Root even though they are a top 4 team and won the World Cup last year? A feat his team is not remotely good enough to achieve? If he doesnít know the names of English batsmen he needs to watch more cricket and learn.

    Iím sorry but he sounds like yet another Pakistani player whose head is in the clouds without achieving anything of note. And he doesnít have to worry about England treating him like a small kid.

    They wonít do that because he is not a small kid. The PCB forcefully turned him into a small kid so that they could hype him up.

    Yes Stokes is overrated and all other English players are crap because a nobody fake 16 year old doesnít know their names.

    Naseem Shah is too arrogant and he will have a hard fall in reality check. Wait and watch.

    We have another Hasan Ali on our hands. Our players just donít learn, and this is the result of uneducated people getting attention and limelight. They donít know how to act and react.

    You could be 10years old or 40 years old. An out swinging ball that is bowled on a slightly fuller length with 4 slips will trouble anyone if itís bowled at 150kmh

    Focus on this and watch how they all remember who you are my boy.

    Well to be honest other than Root and Stokes there is no fully established or 100% certainty in English batting line up at the moment. I doubt many pacers around the world will know most of the English batting line up much with so much chopping and changing in the last couple of years and no one exactly establishing himself.

    Olie Pope though is someone who is England's next best thing in tests.

    Bairstow and Buttler havent been as consistent and have been changed and chopped a lot and havent exactly set test cricket on fire. Burns, Sibley and Crawely are still establishing themselves.

    Though I hope before the first test which is still quite a few days away, our young pacers will know all of them and more importantly where to ball to each one of them.

    How can he not know Buttler,Broad, and Stokes?

    England have not said they won't take him seriously. Don't get what he is on about taking him seriously.

    He seems to be doing a lot of interviews. He should just concentrate on his cricket and avoid regular interviews. Feels like he is giving a new interview every week.

    Yes, it's not necessary that he'll know those names, those are not current or past era legends.

    Naseem Shah has every right to sledge ENG, trash talk, be aggressie, and act like a real fast bowler. Stop being a sissy. That is called fast bowler's attitude.

    Naseem Shah needs to get some life lessons from Hasan Ali on how not to let early fame & success go to ur head. He is sounding a tad too cocky for his age. At his age he should just keep a low profile & focus only on his game

    All this attitude can come back to haunt him if he has poor series & will increase mental pressure at an early age.

    The game hasn't even started so there is nothing to sledge right now. He should concentrate on being prepared rather than saying " England need to take him seriously ".

    He should know Stuart Broad. Naseem is a bowler and Broad is a good role model due to his longevity and bowling brain.

    Lol Buttler is England number 1 keeper in tests right now and Pope is a specialist batter. You may need to watch some more cricket like Naseem.

    Bairstow and Buttler havenít been very consistent in Test cricket but they are huge names in contemporary cricket. It is not possible for a cricketer or a cricket fan today to not know who they are. Was Naseem sleeping during the World Cup last year?

    It is simply not believable that Naseem does not recognize any English batsman except Root. He is clearly trash-talking and wants to come across as confident which is fine, but the problem is that our players do not know the difference between confidence and overconfidence/arrogance.

    This is as unnecessary as Hasan Ali claiming that he wants to take all 10 wickets of Indian batsmen and Sarfraz claiming that India is afraid of playing Pakistan.

    After the south africa tour, the england team has pretty much established their batting order. they found their openers and no.3 who are all gritty. Its not just pope, the england batting order is alot stronger now than last time.

    England now serves up tough seamng pitches for batsmen. Im sure naseem and shaheen will be successful.
    I think the tour will be more of a battle between the bowlers , not the opposing batsmen

    You could play 3 bowlers 2 all rounders or 4 bowlers 1 all rounder.england play moen,archer,anderson,broad and stokes eith stokes being the batting all rounder.

    Pakistan played england with 5 bowlers I belive and drawn the series.

    Stokes isn't a genuine bowler, he is their 2nd best batsmen who bowls well. If Pak have a player who bats in their top six and bowls well then pick him by all means, don't play 5 'specialist' bowlers

    Lol Buttler is England number 1 keeper in tests right now and Pope is a specialist batter. You may need to watch some more cricket like Naseem.
    Hes talking about batting the players he will face when bowling.

    Naseem's PP interview was very sensible and level headed so this is rather out of character.

    Unless Naseem's going to bowl 150k+ howitzers, I don' think there's going to be much worry from the English, as they'll be accustomed to 140 bowlers.

    It is simply not believable that Naseem does not recognize any English batsman except Root. He is clearly trash-talking and wants to come across as confident which is fine, but the problem is that our players do not know the difference between confidence and overconfidence/arrogance.

    This is as unnecessary as Hasan Ali claiming that he wants to take all 10 wickets of Indian batsmen and Sarfraz claiming that India is afraid of playing Pakistan.
    I agree Bairstow and Buttler are huge names in ODIs and T20s but are average players in tests. I am not sure what exactly was asked of him, if he meant the prominent test batsman he knows than its completely understandable as in the whole English squad which played last series in SA no one averages even 40+ in tests (Min 10 tests) except Joe Root.

    Dont know with what gestures and expressions he said this and what exactly was asked so we can only speculate here. I guess we already know most of our players dont necessarily know how to express themselves and Naseem is a pretty young guy as well.

    I am not sure how Moh Abbas was effective in England based upon this theory who even struggles to ball 135 kph.

    If you are implying that Naseem Shah has nothing except pace then I would suggest watching his bowling in QAE 2019, against BD and against Srl. I dont remember seeing a teenager moving the ball both ways in his first year of international cricket and that too from area if uncertainty.

    I am not saying he is gonna bamboozle every English batsmen from the word go but I am not sure about the criteria you are using to judge what will happen in England.

    Yeah, I'm not saying he isn't going to trouble them at all, I'm just saying I don't think it's going to be anything out of the ordinary circa. Amir 2010.

    If we go by the Junaids theory, Mo Abbas can succeed at his pace because of height.

    However, Naseem should stay grounded, he can start opening his mouth once hes more established and got more performances under his belt. Shouldn't be disrespecting his elders like this.

    I didn't have the time earlier but after all the hoopla here, I listened to the interview myself and as expected, all the fuss is for no reason. The answer about not knowing the players' names has been put in a very simplistic way and he didn't mean that at all. I don't see any hint of arrogance or "fame getting to his head syndrome." In fact, his answers are quite mature especially for someone of his age. Meanwhile, someone like Shaheen is much more reserved and holds back with his comments.

    Anyway, here are the quotes. Hope the wrist-slitters can calm down now.

    =========================

    "I aim to keep learning, this is my first tour and I will try to learn from the seniors. We will also see how the players deal with the situation in the WI series and that should help us.

    (Do you think they will take you lightly and think of you as a kid?) "It's good for me if they think of me as a kid. I will try to make sure that if they think of me as a kid then it will be to their loss.

    "I always try hard with my bowling and I will try to bowl well in England and gain experience and learn on the tour.

    "Shaheen was a year senior to me in U19 and I did play alongside him. We bowled together in the nets and we are friends so we used to discuss a lot. He came in the team before me and performed well. When I came in the team then we already had a bit of a combination going and we already discuss plans with each other. The combination is naturally made.

    "We have seen videos of the England batsmen. But I think targeting one batsman doesn't serve the purpose because 1 wicket is 1, if you get 5 wickets then you get a number of different batsmen. Every bowler wants to take 5 wickets in every innings. For any batsman, my aim will be to get him out.

    "If you target one batsman then you lose sight of the others. Of course, you enjoy getting the best batsmen out but the target is always to get 5 wickets in each innings.

    "I don't set very long term targets. Of course it is in my mind that I want to be among the world's top 3 bowlers but I look at it match by match and series by series. I want to be the best bowler in the series and perform well in each match. I am fit for all 3 formats and I am hopeful of performing well for Pakistan and having a good career due to which people remember me positively.

    "Speed is very beneficial for fast-bowlers, especially for reverse swing etc. But we will go there and see the conditions and adapt accordingly. I am watching videos of cricket in England also.

    "Fast-bowlers enjoy it when they have speed and aggression. Any batsmen whether Indian, English, or Australian, you don't think about how big a batsman he is but you focus on your bowling. If you focus on the batsman then you can lose your potency so you should be positive and focus on your strengths. I go to the ground reading the kalima and I don't worry about the batsmen, I believe in Allah and give mt 100% effort.

    "I am training hard and I do feel that it will improve my speed but I am also focused on improving my line and length. Besides that, I am also focusing on my outswing etc., all this happens in training. I am hopeful that I can also improve my speed in future.

    "You need fitness to play all 3 formats. In Tests, you need to bowl for a long time so if you can do that then the other formats seem easier. If your fitness is bad then you'll struggle in all formats. I do speak to our legend bowlers about these things and I am working on them and trying to learn from others about how I should manage myself.

    "Pakistan has had many legend fast-bowlers and I always try to learn from them. I am hopeful that I will keep improving and keep performing well and become one of the top 3 bowlers in the world.

    "Of course, the stronger team you play against, the more focused you need to be and the more you try to perform well. England and Australia tours are tough. We will try to go there and perform well. If we think that they are a big team etc., it can harm us. We have good players too and it should be a good series, we've performed well in the past too.

    "Fast-bowlers get injured but you need courage to bounce back and recover and bowl again. I will focus on improving my fitness and even if I do get injured then I will fight back and try to do well and play for Pakistan.

    (Can you name some of England's top batsmen?) "England have Joe Root, I can't remember the names of their other batsmen properly. I don't know them properly, I know who is a good batsman etc., I don't know their full names properly. Morgan is there, I don't know his first name properly. Ben Stokes is also there, a very good performer.

    "When I came to cricket, I didn't know about spikes etc. We didn't know about injuries and all. So we try to keep learning. I will closely watch the WI series and learn and take notice of how players deal with the new rules due to coronavirus.

    "From the videos I have seen of bowlers like Anderson and Broad, you need to bowl a little fuller in England. In Pakistan, you can't bowl too full so you have to adjust for different places. You bowl differently in Australia and elsewhere. We will go there and play practice matches and try to find the right length with the help of Waqar bhai and the other senior bowlers.

    "Since my childhood I have bowled with a similar action. You do have to make some changes and Waqar bhai has discussed with me about that. My leg used to collapse a bit so I straightened that. I have focused on improving myself. If you make a big change to your natural action then the speed etc. can be compromised. If my action puts load on my back then I am working hard on strengthening my back also. So I talk about all these things with Waqar bhai."

    England have not said they won't take him seriously. Don't get what he is on about taking him seriously.

    He seems to be doing a lot of interviews. He should just concentrate on his cricket and avoid regular interviews. Feels like he is giving a new interview every week.
    These are press conferences and all players are doing them. PCB are doing two press conferences per day. Yesterday Fakhar and Abid. Day before Hafeez and Wahab. Etc.

    The "won't take him seriously" comment was based on a journalist's question, who asked if England would take him lightly thinking of him just as a kid.

    Most Pakistani players have little insight and give short answers. Naseem is comparatively quite mature.

    Regarding the questions, one of the journalists today asked when he will be getting married...

    This could be worrying if its about cricket acumen. How can Pak draw up effective strategies if they don't know much about the opposition?

    I'm not saying they need to GPS trackers and all that like India but they need more intelligence input. Leaving these things to last minute is not a professional approach.

    Fair enough but I wont be surprised if he creates an impact.

    Coming to the height theory I am not sure how height of only some bowlers is discussed by many without full information while nobody talks about others.

    Mohammad Abbas is either an inch or so shorter or max at the same height as Naseem. Below is the Pic for reference:

    He seems to be doing a lot of interviews. He should just concentrate on his cricket and avoid regular interviews. Feels like he is giving a new interview every week.
    Yea he really should know that Stuart Broad is not only a top English batsman but he's one of the best batsmen in the world.

    It's amazing how people will take something out of context just so they can criticize someone. He was asked a question and he answered it.

    (Do you think they will take you lightly and think of you as a kid?) "It's good for me if they think of me as a kid. I will try to make sure that if they think I am of me as a kid then it will be to their loss.

    Coming to the height theory I am not sure how height of only some bowlers is discussed by many without full information while nobody talks about others.

    Mohammad Abbas is either an inch or so shorter or max at the same height as Naseem. Below is the Pic for reference:

    Maybe Pic has a bit of an angle as well but even in that case I dont think there is much difference between height of Naseem and Abbas give or take an inch maybe either ways.

    Naseem has huge potential and can definitely become among top three bowlers.

    He is the second best Pakistani bowler right now (just behind Shaheen).

    Baistrrow is a keeper azwell so why didnt they pick basitrow instead of pope ? So you changed from batter to someone who can keep

    So they should unleash Sohail Khan against the English instead of Naseem?

    A massive reality-check is waiting for him.

    Iím sorry but he sounds like yet another Pakistani player whose head is in the clouds without achieving anything of note. And he doesnít have to worry about England treating him like a small kid.

    They wonít do that because he is not a small kid. The PCB forcefully turned him into a small kid so that they could hype him up.
    All this is true. Naseem already thinks he is seasoned player by playing a few games with no achievements to back it up. Heís no X factor in these matches. I see him getting tonked for many runs.

    "I aim to keep learning, this is my first tour and I will try to learn from the seniors. We will also see how the players deal with the situation in the WI series and that should help us.

    "I always try hard with my bowling and I will try to bowl well in England and gain experience and learn on the tour.

    "I don't set very long term targets. Of course it is in my mind that I want to be among the world's top 3 bowlers but I look at it match by match and series by series. I want to be the best bowler in the series and perform well in each match. I am fit for all 3 formats and I am hopeful of performing well for Pakistan and having a good career due to which people remember me positively.

    "I am training hard and I do feel that it will improve my speed but I am also focused on improving my line and length. Besides that, I am also focusing on my outswing etc., all this happens in training. I am hopeful that I can also improve my speed in future.

    "You need fitness to play all 3 formats. In Tests, you need to bowl for a long time so if you can do that then the other formats seem easier. If your fitness is bad then you'll struggle in all formats. I do speak to our legend bowlers about these things and I am working on them and trying to learn from others about how I should manage myself.

    "Pakistan has had many legend fast-bowlers and I always try to learn from them. I am hopeful that I will keep improving and keep performing well and become one of the top 3 bowlers in the world.

    "Since my childhood I have bowled with a similar action. You do have to make some changes and Waqar bhai has discussed with me about that. My leg used to collapse a bit so I straightened that. I have focused on improving myself. If you make a big change to your natural action then the speed etc. can be compromised. If my action puts load on my back then I am working hard on strengthening my back also. So I talk about all these things with Waqar bhai."

    Yeah, really sounds like he thinks of himself as a very seasoned player
