The Pakistan cricket team, which has gone on a tour of England, is currently in Derbyshire and is engaged in practice for the upcoming series. A series of three ODIs and three T20 Internationals is to be played between England and Pakistan, which will start on 8 July in Cardiff. Although there are many players in the Pakistani team, but there is one player on whom all eyes are fixed. When the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) was going on, the national team was selected in the middle and the selectors could not stop themselves from including them in the team. Now this batsman is humming.
We are talking about 34 year old Pakistani batsman Soheb Maqsood here. For some people this name will be new in international cricket but it is not so. Soheb Maqsood had a good experience of playing in international cricket but after that he was so out of the team that there could not be a re-entry. Now he has returned to the team after a long time in the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League and is eager to rock the limited overs cricket series against England.
return after 5 years
Sohaib Maqsood’s international career began in November 2013 when he was first named in the ODI squad and then included in the T20I squad. He was a member of the team for three years, but after the January 2016 tour of New Zealand, he was dropped from the team so that he could not get a re-entry. Meanwhile, he also tried through domestic cricket but the selectors did not give him a chance. Now at the age of 34, he has re-entered the team. He has scored 735 runs in 26 ODIs and 221 runs in 20 T20 Internationals.
Became superstar in PSL 2021
Half of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) shifted to UAE and when it resumed, Sohaib Maqsood came out in a different way. For Multan Sultans, this batsman performed with a bang and made his team champion for the first time. Sohaib Maqsood was also the Player of the Tournament in PSL 2021. He scored 428 runs in the entire tournament. Pakistan captain Babar Azam scored 554 runs more than him but still Sohaib’s performance was considered better.
‘I have nothing to lose’
After reaching England, Sohaib Maqsood talked about many issues in the conversation with the PCB and in this he also spoke about his return to the national team. He said about this- “There is no pressure on me. I know that the earth will not stop spinning if I lose anything from here. So I will play with an aggressive attitude. My thinking is clear. I have nothing to lose. is.”
ready to bat anywhere
If he is included in the team, then where will he be fielded is a big question. To this Maqsood said, “I batted at number three in the Abu Dhabi leg of the PSL. But in the same competition, I batted at number five as well. If you look at my domestic cricket career, I have scored runs playing at many numbers. That’s why I am ready to bat at any position as per the requirement of the team. When you play for the country, you have to think that way.”
