He recently represented Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which is the team Shadab captains.

In the eight games he played, he took eight wickets at an average of 38.50 and an economy rate of 11.20.

“I feel happy to see how he [Waseem Jnr.] has progressed,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
