So far in his career, the tall fast bowler has played in 25 Tests, 32 ODIs, and 47 T20Is, and he has taken over 200 wickets.

After leading Lahore Qalandars to back-to-back Pakistan Super League titles, he has also made a lot of growth as a captain.

Wasim Akram – December 26, 2017

During Shaheen’s Under-19 years, Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram had nothing but good things to say about him.

“He bowls with his left arm, he’s tall, and his bowling action is just like mine was when I was young. He comes in sideways and gets bounce,” said Akram.

Waqar Younis: 1 Nov. 2020

Waqar Younis, a former fast bowler for Pakistan, said that Shaheen is getting better every day.

“Shaheen is very smart and has a lot of ability. He learns quickly and listens well. Since the tour of Australia, he’s learned a lot, gotten much better at controlling himself, and is getting better and better. “I’m really proud of him for how he’s bowling and how he’s getting better,” Younis said.

Babar Azam – January 23, 2023

Babar Azam, who is the leader of Pakistan and a great batter, said that Shaheen is the best bowler in the world.

Azam said of Shaheen, “Everyone knows he’s the best bowler in Pakistan and the world.”

Dale Steyn – February 27, 2023

South Africa’s great fast bowler Dale Steyn likes how Shaheen holds his hand.

“Shaheen has a great wrist! Steyn said, “His bend and flick are so unique, and many young fast bowlers could look there to find that extra yard of speed they’re looking for.”

“There are a few drills you could try, but if you’re over 25, it may be too late. “It’s still worth a shot,” he said.

Rashid Khan – 28 Feb 2023

Rashid Khan, an Afghanistan leg-spinner, said that Shaheen was a great leader.

“Shaheen is a great leader of the team. As a bowler or player, you feel at ease when you have a manager like him because of how well he runs everything. Rashid said, “He helps players get better and doesn’t get mad when a player is sad.”
