We will go back after winning the World Cup: Ubaid Shah sends warning ahead of semi-final

Srinagar: Pakistan new pace sensation Ubaid Shah, the brother another star pacer Naseem Shah has sent a warning to rivals ahead of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2024 semifinal against Australia on Thursday at Sahara Park Willowmoore Cricket Stadium.

Ubaid Shah has had a stellar U19 World Cup scalping 17 wickets in five matches at an impressive average of 10.52 including a five-wicket haul that came in a do-or-die match against U19 Asia Cup winners, Bangladesh, and secured Pakistan’s semi-final qualification while defending a below par total of 155.

“We are happy to make it to the semi-final. The way I have performed and got support from the team and management (means a lot). The way we have come prepared and taken a start, we will hope to finish the same way,” Shah told ICC Digital in an exclusive interview.

“The batting of our Pakistan team has been good but when we talk about our bowling, it is very good. In the whole tournament, no team has been able to go past 200 against us which is one of the biggest positives.”

“If I talk about individual performances, I watch my brother (Naseem Shah) a lot. I get happy watching the team perform well but seeing Naseem do well makes me happier for obvious reasons,” When asked about Naseem by ICC Digital.

Ubaid Shah in the interview praised whole team.

“Everybody in our team is great. Shahzaib has scored a lot of runs for us and in bowling, I’ve got the most wickets for our team. I’ll continue to perform like this for my team and the quality of batting and bowling we’ve got, we will go back after winning the World Cup.”

“Whenever we set our foot on the ground, we tell ourselves that we are going to play with aggression. Winning and losing is a part of the game. We won’t lose by being lazy. We will always put up a fight even if we lose. The way we played against Bangladesh is our template. We will try to win quickly but with aggression.”
