Ahmad Shahzad, Pakistan’s opening batsman, has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to provide him the same opportunities as other players on the circuit.
Shahzad, who has played in 13 Tests, 81 ODIs, and 59 T20Is, remarked on Geo News’ program Score that he is there to represent Pakistan one more.
“The race for the Pakistan cricket team is open to anyone. Those who perform well will be given the opportunity to play. Just like that, “When asked about the excessive number of openers competing for a spot on the national team, particularly in the shorter format, Ahmed responded in the negative.
“It is based on how well each cricketer performs. I wholeheartedly support giving young people a chance. Saim Ayub has really made an impression on me, and I want him to play for Pakistan. Yet, sometimes it’s necessary to train these young players with more experience “Added he.
There is no question about his fitness, according to Shahzad. Shahzad answered when asked if he was available for all three game forms, “I am.” “I don’t desire favouritism. I only want to be treated fairly, like other players “Ultimately, he said.
For a long time, Pakistan has been represented by the opening hitter who bats right. He was the first cricketer from Pakistan to record a century in each of the three forms.
Sarfaraz Ahmed served as the cricketer’s captain for his final international game in 2019. Misbah-ul-Haq was appointed as the team’s head coach by the PCB setup under Ehsan Mani.
Misbah re-invited Shahzad and Umar Akmal to the T20I team against Sri Lanka in his debut series as head coach. Pakistan suffered a 3-0 T20I series defeat.
