Being a frontline Test batsman of Pakistan, Asad Shafiq comes across as a specialist for the red-ball cricket. However, Pakistan’s dependable batsman has failed to blossom in the 50-over games. Playing 60 ODI matches, Asad scored 1336 runs at 24.74. Moreover, a strike-rate of 67.50 doesn’t really justify his talent. All this joined hands in removing him from the national ODI framework.
However, the 33-year old player has no plans to say goodbye to the ODI cricket. Sharing his views, the Karachi born highlighted his performances in the domestic 50-over cricket as he revealed his work towards revolutionizing his stroke-play. Asad added that he would look to perform strongly in domestic circuit and leave the rest to the selectors.
“I have been playing one-day in domestic cricket and my performance is also good. I’m not looking to close ODI cricket’s doors on myself. I’m actually looking to ameliorate my game as per modern standards. However, it is up to the selectors and their planning about Pakistan’s white-ball cricket,” said by Test veteran while sharing his openness to feature in ODI cricket for Pakistan.
