Naseem Shah’s brother Ubaid dominates with jaw-dropping dismissals

Pakistan U19 pacer, Ubaid Shah, the talented brother of the national team pace bowler Naseem Shah, stole the limelight in the ongoing Under-19 World Cup match against New Zealand. 

Ubaid’s jaw-dropping dismissals left spectators in awe as he single-handedly dismantled the top three of the Kiwi batting lineup with a spellbinding exhibition of seam bowling.

Executing a devastating opening spell, Ubaid sent the middle stumps cartwheeling, showcasing his exceptional skills with the new ball. The right-arm sensation has consistently proven himself as one of Pakistan’s key performers in the ongoing mega-event, maintaining a remarkable track record that includes a notable four-wicket haul against Afghanistan.

In the latest encounter, Ubaid concluded with impressive figures of 3/30, significantly contributing to New Zealand’s dismissal for a mere 139 runs by the Boys in Green.
