Known as the ‘problematic child’ of Pakistan cricket, opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad gained the trust of selectors to be included for the T20Is against Sri Lanka. However, what followed baffled everyone as the explosive cricketer recorded poor outings in both 20-over contests against the Islanders, scoring only 17 runs at an average of 8.50
Despite being given a plethora of chances Ahmed seems not too happy with how he has been treated. Recently, he talked on this subject by stating the example of prolific batsman Babar Azam. The aggressive cricketer feels that Babar was given the right platform to flourish and he did so because the management was patient with him.
Saying that he urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to make sure that all the cricketers are treated on the same lines so that the country can witness a lot of talent getting groomed properly. While Ahmed is right about the patience Mickey Arthur and the management showed with Babar, but is no secret that the 28-year old cricketer too was given many games before getting spurned from the national reckoning.
