Pakistan and Australia Wear Black Armbands

Shah decided to stay with the team and play following the death of his mother

Players of Australia A and Pakistan wore black armbands during the second and third day of the three-day practice match in Perth. They wore it to pay respect to Naseem Shah’s mother who passed away yesterday. Cricket Australia tweeted their condolences to the 16-year-old Pakistani fast-bowler.

‘Heartfelt condolences to Naseem Shah and his family. Both sides are wearing black armbands today in respect to Naseem's mother who passed away last night’, CA wrote.

Despite his mother’s death, Shah decided to stay and continue for the rest of the tour due to scheduling conflicts. However, he was withdrawn from the practice match after he was informed about the death of his mother.

Pakistan will proceed to the Test series of their Australian tour. Naseem Shah is the ninth youngest player to play a Test match in the upcoming series. It is also his maiden call-up to join the Pakistan Test squad.

Odds of the upcoming match will be available soon. Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
