Naseem becomes youngest Test cricketer to score hat-trick

Pakistan’s teenage fast bowler Naseem Shah on Sunday became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the history of the Test cricket.

The rookie pacer bowled out three specialist Bangladeshi batsmen a little before close of play on the third day of the first cricket Test being played in Rawalpindi.

Sixteen-year-old Naseem first trapped Najmul Hasan Shanto, who scored 38 runs studded with three fours and one six, right before the wicket. Naseem then had next man Taijul Islam also trapped leg before wicket. On the very next delivery, Mahmudullah was caught by Haris Sohail in the slip.
