After serving his ban for involvement in the spot-fixing scandal, Sharjeel Khan was back in 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.
On the other hand, his contemporary Fakhar Zaman reacquired his batting mojo after failures in early games. This saw the dashing batsman mustering 246 runs at an average of 27.33 while managing an impressive strike-rate of 132.97.
Recently, former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif became a part of the debate concerning the aforementioned two batters. He said that despite Sharjeel scoring fewer runs than Fakhar, the focus was only on his fitness which indicates it as an only hindrance in his comeback. Therefore, he considered it a bad sign for Fakhar and said that the 29-year old might find himself out of the national reckoning for a long time. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen who makes it to the T20 World Cup squad of the boys in green.
