  Australia A pull off draw as Pakistan's teenage quick fires in Perth Pakistan's 16-year-old quick Naseem Shah was on fire in the drawn pink-ball tour match against Australia A. Two days after the death of his mother, Naseem delivered a bruising display of fast bowling at Optus Stadium that culminated in the teenager dismissing Marcus Harris (20) with a fearsome bouncer that caught the left-hander's edge.Boasting an unusual technique and impressive pace, the right-arm quick finished with figures of 1-21 before Australia A captain Alex Carey and Pakistan counterpart Azhar Ali shook hands with half an hour left on Wednesday evening.

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali has no concerns about throwing 16-year-old quick Naseem Shah into the Test cauldron in Brisbane.

Mohammad Farogh Naseem (Urdu: محمد فروغ نسیم‎) is a politician and lawyer who is the current Federal Minister of Law and Justice, in office since 20 August 2018. He is also member of the Senate of Pakistan . He has previously served as Advocate General of Sindh.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has rubbished suggestions that 16-year-old Test debutant Naseem Shah's age is not accurate after doubts were cast by an Indian publication.

Naseem's true age has been brought into question after an Indian publication called The Print accused him of "(growing) younger by the day".

The publication also points to another article published in 2016 where West Indies great Andy Roberts was quoted as identifying "a young fast bowler by the name of Nasim" who was 16 years old in Pakistan.

Doubters of Naseem's true age have also brought up a tweet from Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq from December 2018, where Sadiq identifies the fast bowler as being 17 years of age.

However, Pakistan Cricket Board CEO Wasim Khan was left furious at allegations that Naseem's listed age was false, calling stories questioning his age "absolute rubbish".

"You only need to look at his face," Khan told The Tonk.

"He's hardly got any growth on his face. In terms of that, people question it no doubt, just because of his age and the fact that he's a mature lad and the fact that he's playing international cricket at this age.

"But the bottom line is he's 16 years old and he's playing. We don't really care what India think."

Pakistani cricketers are no strangers to dubious ages, as revealed by legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi in his recently-released autiobiography Game Changer.

Afridi burst onto the international cricket stage as a 16-year-old in 1996 when he blasted a record-breaking 37-ball century against Sri Lanka, but revealed that he was actually 19 at the time.

"Also, for the record, I was just nineteen, and not sixteen like they claim," he wrote.

"I was born in 1975. So, yes, the authorities stated my age incorrectly."

Pakistan is no stranger to gifting young cricketers opportunities in its international team, with the youngest debutant in Test cricket history, Hasan Raza,playing his first match at just 14 years and 227 days of age back in October 1996.

However, doubts have also been cast as to whether Raza was indeed 14 at all, with doubts about his birthdate and later medical tests resulting in the PCB withdrawing the record claim.
