After many senior cricketers pulling out of Pakistan tour, Sri Lanka have named a relatively inexperienced squad which is set to visit the country for 3 ODIs and as many T20Is. While this frustrated the fans of Pakistan, it also lightened the hopes of many young cricketers of the territory to play for or get back in the national team.
One such player is the batting all-rounder Hussain Talat who feels that he’s done enough to stay in the national framework. The Lahore born was the part of Pakistan’s last T20I assignment against South Africa where he was the second highest run-getter for Pakistan. However, his strike-rate came under scrutiny.
Nevertheless, Hussain added that he featured in 14 of the 20 T20I games Pakistan played since his debut. This allowed him to stay confident to appear against Sri Lanka. Playing 14 T20Is, the 23-year old amassed 371 runs at 28.53, while also picking 4 wickets. It remains to be seen if the selection committee decides to include his services for the forthcoming series against Islanders.
