Waqar Younis Reveals What He Thinks About Sharjeel Khan

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) has proved to be a great platform for national cricketers to make a statement for their selection in the team. There has been plenty of debate regarding Sharjeel Khan’s return to the international cricket, especially after he came into form at the later stages of the league.

Pakistan bowling coach, Waqar Younis, has weighed in with his opinion on the batsman’s future, saying he isn’t ready for the international cricket yet.

Sharjeel needs a lot of work right now. You can’t judge him on the basis of one or two innings.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that he will not be in contention for the World Cup, because Waqar Younis has said that the explosive batsman has a lot of time till the mega event to work on his fitness.

He needs to work on his fitness because where are we going to hide him in the field? Fielding is really important these days and especially in Australia where grounds are really big.

Sharjeel played a few important innings at the top for Karachi Kings in the last few matches. In the 10 innings, he scored 199 runs at a strike rate of 144.20.


Do you think Sharjeel should be included in Pakistan’s squad for the World Cup? Let us know in the comments.

  • I request PCB to ban all cricketers for life once they match fix or fancy fix? They make a quick buck, serve their ban & our back. What message are we giving to young cricketers????

  • Now Waqar will judge Sharjeel’s Competency can anyone ask to Waqar how many runs he scored in International cricket, please Waqar you have given a lots of performance in bowling no doubt about it but please dont judge the batsman it should be judge by Misbah although he was not a aggressive batsman but he can judge better then Waqar. Let him Judge….

    We don’t have right now any aggressive bats man in Pak team after Afridi so if we want to pic a best team for T20 WC consider all choices like (Sharjeel, Hyder, Azam Khan, Asif Ali and Iftekhar) this is the 1st time we have a good aggressive talent after this PSL.

    Dont waste these talents.

  • One thing I forgot to mention in my previous comment that is Shadab has also shown a remarkable performance in batting during this PSL he is also a asset of Pakistan.

    My dream squad for T-20 WC given below:

    1. Sharjeel Khan
    2. Babar Azam
    3. Hyder Ali
    4. Shoaib Malik
    5. Azam Khan (WK Batsman)
    6. Immad Waseem
    7. Shadab Khan
    8. Asif Ali
    9 Naseem Shah
    10 Shaheen Afridi
    11 Hasnain

    Other Squad Members
    1. Zeeshan Ashraf (Multan Sultan Opener & WK)
    2. Husain Talat (ISB United Allrounder)
    3. Musa Khan (Fast Bowler)
    4. Umair Khan.

  • How can a specialist of eye treat the patient of corona…..!!!?
    Sharjeel must be given a chance in the upcoming worldcup.

  • Sharjeel should forget to be part of the Pakistani squad in the presence of Waqar Younus and Mishah ul Haq.

  • I think Waqar got it spot on that international cricket these days require to to stay fit with your body tuned up so that it can help the players while fielding and running. Having said there is no denial that Surjeel is one of the best power hitters I have ever seen and Pakistan definitely needs his service, Pakistan team really suffered because he got banned just like others and couldn’t play for 3-4 years but nevertheless let’s be fair here that he definitely needs to work on his fitness which is very important for a modern day player despite his immense talent and batting skills.

  • These cricketers are human to not farishta ….. so dont be so harsh theya are not murderrers
