He added that “The selectors have a tough job and they do it well. What I need to do is to perform well going forward and work my way back into the team. I’m working on my technique and my fitness so that when I get another opportunity I’m ready for it.”

All-rounder from Peshawar Zalmi, who got a wicket on his initial release in a T20 international, as well added that he grades his bowling as his power. He said that “I do enjoy bowling more than batting;” he continued “I started primarily as a batsman at U-19 level, but then started fast bowling in 2008.”

He added by saying “Given I’ve scored most of my First-Class runs batting at number eight position, my bowling is probably considered the stronger one.”

The all-rounder from Multan also disclosed his icons and role models, many of whom were the component of the team who continue to perform in the ICC World Cup 1999 final. He said “I had a few role models,” he told that “They were largely out of the 1999 World Cup side that reached the final; so the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Inzamamul Haq and Shahid Afridi were people I looked up to.”
