WATCH: Naseem Shah’s maiden Test hat-trick against Bangladesh in Rawalpindi Test

Posted On

Pakistan teen sensation Naseem Shah picked up his maiden a hat-trick on Sunday against Bangladesh during the first Test at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.


In the seventh over of Bangladesh’s second innings, the 16-year-old trapped Najmul Hossain Shanto leg-before wicket as the batsman was looking to press forward and defend.

Off the very next ball, he sent back Taijul Islam packing with a pitched up pacy delivery.


Mahmadullah was his third wicket. The Bangladesh right-handed batsman, who was looking to play an extravagant cover-drive, could only find an edge and was caught by Haris Sohail at first slip.

Shah has now become the fourth Pakistani bowler to claim a Test hat-trick and joined the likes of Mohammad Sami, Abdul Razzaq, and Wasim Akram in the elite list.
