Shaheen’s international career

Shaheen stands as a cornerstone of the Pakistani cricket team across all formats, showcasing his prowess as a phenomenal fast bowler. His versatility has been evident through his consistent performance in various formats, earning him the admiration of fans and selectors alike. When Babar Azam relinquished the captaincy, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) entrusted Shaheen with leading the team in the shortest format.

During his captaincy stint, Shaheen led Pakistan in an away series against New Zealand. Unfortunately, the series concluded with disappointment as Pakistan faced a 4-1 defeat. Subsequently, the captaincy reins were passed back to Babar.

Making his debut in 2018, Shaheen has graced the international arena with his left-handed bowling prowess, accumulating an impressive tally of 305 wickets across 136 matches in various formats. His remarkable achievements include 20 four-wicket hauls and 7 instances of claiming 5 wickets in a match throughout his illustrious career.
