Hunain Shah, the talented brother of Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah, has recently joined Lahore Qalandars with high aspirations for his cricketing career. In a video released by the team, Hunain expressed his belief that the current champions of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) provide an excellent platform for young cricketers to showcase their skills. The young fast bowler sees Lahore Qalandars as a great opportunity for players like himself.
Hunain’s decision to join Lahore Qalandars follows in the footsteps of his brother Naseem, who has already made significant contributions to Pakistani cricket. Naseem has played 15 Tests, eight ODIs, and 19 T20Is for the national team, establishing himself as a key frontline bowler.
Notably, Hunain’s bowling action bears a resemblance to that of his brother Naseem, and he acknowledges Naseem’s guidance in honing his skills. Hunain shared that Naseem provides valuable support and encourages him to bowl fast, which he diligently works on. The two brothers have been playing together since childhood, and now Hunain aims to follow Naseem’s path and represent Pakistan at the international level.
Lahore Qalandars, known for their commitment to nurturing young talent, has played a pivotal role in providing opportunities to emerging cricketers from Pakistan and abroad. Under the leadership of Shaheen Shah Afridi, the team achieved a significant milestone this year by becoming the first to successfully defend their PSL title. They emerged victorious in both encounters against the Multan Sultans, ultimately securing the prestigious PSL trophy.
Hunain Shah’s addition to the Lahore Qalandars squad brings further excitement and anticipation, as he joins a team that has demonstrated a strong commitment to developing young cricketers and achieving success in the PSL. Fans eagerly await the opportunity to witness Hunain’s growth and contributions to the team’s future endeavors.
