Pakistan teen sensation Naseem Shah created a world record recently when he became the youngest player in Test history to bag a hat-trick against Bangladesh.

The youngster talked to PakPassion.net about his career till now, the hat-trick and the world-class batsmen he is going to be facing in the future.

One batsman that Shah is pumped up to face is India skipper Virat Kohli. It’s always a high-voltage game when the arch-rivals meet. Shah has made it clear that he respects Kohli, but certainly does not fear him.

“Yes definitely. India versus Pakistan is always special and I have already been told that players can become heroes and villains in those matches,” Shah said.
