Junaid Khan eyeing a spot in Pakistan’s squad for WC19


Left-arm pacer Junaid Khan is confident to find his place in the final squad of Pakistan for the upcoming World Cup slated to start from May 30 in England and Wales.

Khan while talking to the ARY News in Dubai said that he tries to enjoy while playing as his goal to play for Pakistan has been achieved. “Belonging to a small village I am privileged to have represented Pakistan in Test cricket,” said Khan who is confident for his strong comeback in the national team.

Khan said that playing a crucial role in the team’s victory always gives special happiness as he did a good job for Khulna Titans in recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

“I always try to give my best. In BPL I got two man-of-the-match awards which obviously had given me the confidence to do good,” said Khan.

To a query about his fitness during the selection of team’s squad for the series against South Africa, Khan said that he was hopeful for his selection in the team but unfortunately the things didn’t go in his favor.

“I was hopeful for the selection in the squad against South Africa but I believe that the team management has better plans for me,”

Khan rated the Pakistan Super League (PSL) highly saying that the players from around teh world praise the high standards of bowling in the league.

“I have played almost all the leagues around the world but PSL is known for tough cricket,” he said.

Khan is currently representing Multan Sultans in the ongoing fourth edition of the PSL. He has taken three wickets so far in this season. Khan has represented Pakistan in 22 Tests, 71 ODIs and 9 T20Is.
