Naseem Shah says Pakistani cricketers do not get even 30% of facilities provided to England Club Cricketers

Naseem Shah says Pakistani cricketers do not get even 30% of facilities provided to England Club Cricketers

Pakistani bowler Naseem Shah was contracted by Gloucestershire for the Vitality T20 Blast but was replaced by counterpart Mohammad Amir after suffering an injury. Discussing his experience in England, he feels even the club cricketers there are provided better facilities than Pakistani cricketers get.

Naseem, while talking to a reliable source, has narrated that the Pakistani players do not have even 30% of what England Club Cricketers avail. Presenting his opinion in regard, he says that his country can dig out more cricketers if provided some of the similar facilities as England.

He states that he knows where he comes from. Telling about his area, the fast bowler has highlighted the fact that most the Pakistani cricketers are emerging from such areas but do not have proper facilities to polish their talent. He says the players are not getting exposure to hard balls, and do not have cricket grounds in their hometown.

I think we don’t even have 30 per cent of the facilities that are available to club cricketers here in England. I know where I’ve come from, I started playing cricket with a tape ball, and when I see the cricketers playing here, it’s completely different. Here, when I play a club match and I see the ground and facilities, I think, ‘Wow, these guys are so lucky. They have so many facilities’.”

When we look at our cricket, most players come from places where it’s difficult to avail facilities. But from where I belonged, there was no cricket ground. You couldn’t play cricket with a hard ball.

Concerning Naseem’s international career, he has played 11 international tests and has 26 wickets to his name.
