England pace bowler Jofra Archer has questioned whether Pakistan seamer Naseem Shah will be able to bowl at 90 mph consistently during the second Test in Southampton.
Archer doesn’t think Naseem will be able to keep bowling at such a high speed, saying “no one is a robot”.
Naseem took two wickets in the first Test in Manchester, which Pakistan lost by three wickets, while Archer picked up four wickets.
“It’s not every day you’re going to come in at 90 mph. I’ve seen Shah started bowling 90 mph so we’ll see how he goes on later on,” Archer was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan. “No one is a robot, so I’ll be very, very interested to see what he can produce a bit later. This is not a wicket you’re really going to try to bend your back on.”
The second Test between England and Pakistan will begin on Thursday.
