Making a comeback to aggressive cricket after serving a 5-12 months ban for spot-fixing, tainted Pakistan opener Sharjeel Khan on Sunday mentioned he doesn’t want to dwell on the previous and his solely focus is to perform on the upcoming Pakistan Super League. “Look every person has a past and future and I don’t want to dwell into the past,” mentioned Sharjeel, who is ready to return for the Karachi Kings in the fifth version of PSL to be held from February 20 to March 22.
“What happened is over and the chapter is closed. My only focus now is on performing well in this PSL and I am not even thinking about national selection.”
The 30-year-previous was banned from all types of cricket for 5 years — half of it suspended — for his function in a spot-fixing scandal in the course of the 2017 PSL version.
“I went out while playing the PSL and I am making a comeback in the PSL so it is very significant for me to perform in this tournament,” he mentioned.
Pakistani pacer Muhammad Aamir, who had retired from Test cricket final 12 months and was dropped from white-ball squads, mentioned he’s wanting to make a comeback to the nationwide group forward of the T20 World Cup with an excellent present on the PSL.
“Look they are ups and downs in every cricketer’s life and I am no different. But this PSL is a great opportunity to perform for my team and get back into the national side,” Aamir advised reporters right here on Sunday.
“I want to be part of the national side and since this is the first time we are playing the PSL entirely at home it is very important for us to perform,” he mentioned.
“I am going step by step and I know it will be a tough competition as everyone is trying hard to perform. I think this PSL will be a very hard and tough competition for all players,” he added.
