Ubaid Shah Impressive Performances Highlighted in U19 World Cup

Ubaid Shah, the younger brother of Pakistani fast bowler Naseem, showcased his talent by dismissing the top three New Zealand batsmen in a recent Under-19 World Cup match. His devastating opening spell saw him send the middle stumps flying, displaying his remarkable bowling skills.


Using the new ball, Ubaid once again demonstrated his exciting potential. He has been a standout performer for Pakistan in the U19 World Cup and the Asia Cup, having claimed six wickets in the tournament before this game, including four against Afghanistan.

In this match, he finished with figures of 3/30 as Pakistan restricted New Zealand to 139 runs.

This performance stands out as one of Ubaid’s most remarkable displays to date. He removed opener Luke Watson’s off-stump with a well-directed delivery that flicked off the pad before sending Snehith Reddy’s middle stump flying with a booming inswinger. In between, he trapped Tom Jones lbw, giving Pakistan a significant early advantage.

Although both teams have secured their places in the Super Sixes, this game holds importance as points earned against progressing teams will be carried forward. The winner of this match will finish at the top of the group, ensuring a favorable ICC World Cup Super Sixes schedule.

Meanwhile, in response, Shamyl Hossain and Shahzaib Khan provided Pakistan with a solid start in the chase. They set the right tone by scoring runs at a brisk pace, with Shahzaib leading the charge.

Both New Zealand and Pakistan aim to secure two crucial carry-forward points in this match as they advance to the Super Six stage.
