“Humble suggestion 2 Junior selection committee not 2 send Naseem shah to play under 19 world cup. He already played international cricket and should work hard Technically and Physically to get better at that level. It would be fruitful to use this opportunity to send any other fast bowler (sic),” Mohammad Hafeez tweeted on Monday.

“Can I give you a humble suggestion? Khuda ka wasta hay…..ub yeh riwaj Pakistan cricket main daal he do keh ….ba-izzat tareeqay se retire ho jao.?? koi retire he nahi hota, sub nikalay he jatay hain,” a user said on Twitter.

“No he should play u19 WC to bring world cup home by giving his best,” another one joined in.

“Tremendous suggestion, now Naseem‘s level is higher than under19 player and this is the right time to bring a new bowler and provide him the opportunity,” a fan tweeted, in support of Hafeez.

On Monday the history was scripted by Naseem as a youngest fast bowler, and overall as a second youngest, in one Test innings to claim a five-wicket haul.

The fast express bowling of Naseem helped Pakistan to bowl Sri Lanka out for 212 runs and it helped them to win their first-ever Test series in over a decade at home.
