Pakistan’s left-arm spinner, Zafar Gohar, who recently scored his maiden First-Class century spoke up about his vision regarding the selection in Pakistan cricket team. Zafar was selected for the National Training Camp set by the new Head Coach, Misbah-ul-Haq but he did not make it to the ODI and T20I squad against Sri Lanka.
Gohar talking about his chances in future, said, “I have been playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for the past four years where, I am glad to say that, I have learned a lot from my association with Islamabad United. The competition, in the PSL and within the Islamabad United side, has been intense and provided me with some good learning experiences. I feel that with each passing period of play over the years that I have been playing, I have become a more experienced player. When I represented Pakistan in the one ODI in 2015, I was still a little raw as I had just come from the Under-19 system but even then, I was able to take two wickets and score some runs for Pakistan”.
“Now it’s been almost 5-6 years since my Under-19 days and since then I have also participated in a domestic cricket where competition is always tough and I have gained lot of experience as well. So, I feel that I have what it takes to make a comeback in international cricket”, Gohar added. Pakistan currently lacks a quality spinner in the side and his inclusion could add bit of flexibility in Pakistan’s bowling department, and he also provides a bit of batting services down the order.
