Young fast bowler of Pakistan, Naseem Shah addressed the press conference ahead of the first Test in Rawalpindi, where he talked about various matters leading up to the series. While most of the journalists asked questions in Hindi, one of the journalists was asking questions in English, and Naseem Shah replied in a hilarious way which causes laughter during the press conference.
The reporter asked Naseem about the longevity of England’s legendary pacer James Anderson and Naseem praised the English legend and said,
“It’s a very big achievement because I’m a fast bowler, I know how hard it is. He’s a legend, we learn a lot of things from him. When we meet, we discuss this. He’s still playing at 40, he’s still fit, so you can imagine how much hard work he’s putting in,”
The reporter asked the next question to Naseem about his opinion on the ‘pace vs skills’ debate, insisting on what he thinks of Anderson who might not be as quick as him but has other skills. Naseem Shah cut the question short with a hilarious remark about his English language comprehension which causes laughter across the room. He said,
“Brother, I have just 30 percent English. My English is finished now, okay?”
Further praising Anderson, Naseem said that a massive amount of experience has helped Anderson in understanding the game better.
