In a recent interview with, Shah said that his objective is to perform well in whichever format he plays.

“The idea is to put in my best effort for Pakistan. To achieve that, I will aim to bowl the best I can in every league or domestic tournament so that the selectors can take note and pick me for the national team,” he said.

“It is my wish to make a comeback in the One-Day format and I am trying hard to achieve that aim,” he added. (ANI)
