Despite being one of the brightest batting talents of Pakistan, Ahmed Shehzad landed himself in a never-ending loop of inconsistent and mediocrity. With this, he had to lose his place in the national team and his recent stint with Quetta Gladiators in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 wasn’t encouraging as he failed to record any noticeable batting outing.
However, he has recently received words of encouragement from the renowned commentator Alan Wilkins. The former domestic cricketer of England urged the right-hander to follow the blueprint of legendary cricketer Viv Richards who mentors the team of Quetta. Moreover, Wilkins applauded the skills and fighting spirit of Shehzad as he backed him to make a national comeback.
“Shehzad is a fine player. In fact, he is a terrific individual who loves to learn. He is lucky to have the likes of Viv Richards working with him in PSL. If he listens to all the advice of Viv, he will go a long way. I think he has a lot of years of cricket left in him,” the 66-year old said while reflecting on the top-order batsman.
