F.P. Report

LAHORE: Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz said that fast bowler Naseem Shah was fully fit and would take part in the next match against Hong Kong in the T20 Asia Cup 22 at the Dubai Cricket Stadium on Friday.

Responding to the media men at the ICC Cricket Academy in Dubai on Thursday, he said Naseem Shah was not injured but he crumpled in the penultimate over of the Indian innings due to severe heat cramps during the match against India last Sunday.

Nawaz said, “It is not easy for a spinner to bowl last over of the innings but he was confident to bowl the last over in the match against India,” adding that he was forced by circumstances to bowl last over of the match.
