After serving his ban for involvement in the spot-fixing scandal, Sharjeel Khan was back in the competitive cricket. He rejoined the valuable Pakistan Super League (PSL) after getting picked by Karachi Kings. The aggressive batsman failed to register impressive numbers as he mustered only one half-century to score a total of 199 runs at 24.87 in 10 innings.
Apart from this, his fitness remained in limelight as many believe that the 30-year old cricketer will need to shed few pounds to don the national jersey. Recent man to become a part of this debate is none other than Pakistan’s head coach Misbah-ul-Haq.
The 45-year old who earlier captained Sharjeel both in the national team and in PSL while representing Islamabad United said that the left-hander’s fitness requires a lot of work. Misbah further highlighted the importance of fitness in the modern day cricket. Earlier, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Wasim Khan made a point of Sharjeel not being fit for the International cricket.
