Watch this video to witness Naseem Shah’s hilarious response, which has everyone in splits at the press conference: “My 30 Percent English Is Finished Now, Okay.”
Beginning on December 1, Pakistan will get back into the swing of things in the cricket world with a historic home Test series against England. The two teams will renew their long-standing rivalry, which reached a pinnacle earlier this month in the Twenty20 World Cup final, which England won by five wickets against Babar Azam’s side at the illustrious Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
There will be three Test matches played during England’s trip to Pakistan in 2022. The first Test is scheduled to take place in Rawalpindi from the 1st to the 5th of December, the second Test is scheduled to take place in Multan from the 9th to the 13th of December, and the third Test is scheduled to take place in Karachi from the 17th to the 21st of December.
During a press conference held before the first test, the pace-bowling wonder Naseem Shah was questioned about the longevity of the England pace-bowling great James Anderson, who is now 40 years old yet is still an important part of England’s Test setup. Naseem showered Anderson with compliments and said that he is putting in a significant amount of effort.
I’m sorry, Brother, but my English is just 30% complete – Naseem Shah
The 19-year-old pacer, who has taken 33 wickets in tests, 10 wickets in ODIs, and 14 wickets in T20 Internationals, was further asked to share his thoughts on the pace vs skills debate. He insisted that even though Anderson does not have the same speed as he once did, he still possesses the skills necessary to be successful.
Naseem Shah cut the question short and responded with an epic retort, which caused the reporters to laugh out loud.
He responded by saying, “Brother, my English is just 30% proficient.” My work in English is done at this point, all right? ”
Naseem said that Anderson, who is one of the finest bowlers in the world, has a lot of experience, and that this has helped him understand the game better. The reporter then refined his question, and Naseem addressed the reporter’s clarification.
“As I was saying, he’s a living legend. He is an expert in every field. Because he has played cricket in every region of the globe, he is well-versed in the art of taking wickets. According to Naseem, this is one of the reasons why he is considered to be one of the top bowlers in the world.
