“I've talked to the bowlers before. I will be very honest here, no bowler from this group can replace Shaheen. This is my honest answer. The way he (Shaheen) has performed in the past 1-2 years, no bowler can come into the side and fill his shoes. But, we can get another Shaheen and this is an opportunity for our other fast bowlers.

Pakistan will be up against arch-rivals India on Sunday when both teams will lock horns in the Super four stage. The team will miss the services of Shaheen but they will rely on Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf to deliver in the fixture.
