After the end of his team’s series against the West Indies, the players returned to England to participate in the T20 Blast. One of the Pakistani players currently playing in the Blast is fast bowler Naseem Shah, who is representing Gloucestershire. Shah also had a county stint with the team, but missed the first few games due to injury.

Very difference in facilities
In the current T20 Blast, the 19-year-old Shah has played three matches for Gloucestershire, in which he has taken five wickets. Shah has now revealed his time in England. He also revealed that there is a vast difference in facilities at club level in England as compared to Pakistan.

we don’t even have 30 percent
I think we don’t even have 30 percent of the facilities available to club cricketers in England, Shah said in an interview. I know where I come from, I started playing cricket with a tape ball and it’s totally different when I see cricketers playing here.

Lots of facilities here
He said that when I play a club match here and I look at the grounds and facilities I think, ‘Wow, these guys are so lucky. They have many facilities. The Pakistan fast bowler further said that while there are good facilities in cities like Lahore and Karachi, there is a dire need of improvement in other places. Shah said, “When we look at our cricket, most of the players come from places where it is difficult to take advantage of the facilities. There are good arrangements in places like Lahore, Karachi. But where I am from, there was no cricket ground.
