Sharjeel Khan returns for South Africa, Zimbabwe tour

Sharjeel Khan returns to the national side after four years. He last played for Pakistan in 2016.

Pakistan opener Sharjeel Khan got an instant reward for his tremendous performance with the bat in the National T20 Cup and Pakistan Super League (PSL). He scored 233 runs in the T20 Cup while he was the third-highest scorer in PSL.

Pakistan’s chief selector Mohammad Wasim said Sharjeel is not too far away from being at his best and this recall in the national side will be a big opportunity to further improve his fitness and win matches for his side.
