Karachi: The Domestic Cricketer of the Year, Kamran Ghulam is thrilled to be part of Pakistan’s Test squad for the series against South Africa.
The 25-year-old Kamran is hoping that he will get a chance to replicate his ongoing form in the upcoming Tests in Karachi and Rawalpindi.
“It’s quite intriguing to be named into the 20-player squad out of a population of 220 million people in a historic series,” Kamran said to pcb.com.pk.
“I am glad that domestic cricket is being valued and respected, and my selection will give boost to other domestic players to perform and progress to the international stage,” he added.
“At the end of the day, 11 best and most suited players will feature in the first Test, but the remaining nine will continue to enjoy being part of the elite group, considered good enough to represent Pakistan,” he maintained.
It must be noted Kamran scored 1249 runs in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2020-21 at an average of 62.45 and broke more than the 36-year-old record held by opener Saadat Ali, who had scored 1,217 in the 1983-84 season.
Overall Kamran has scored 2413 runs in 31 first-class matches, his runs tally includes nine centuries and 11 half-centuries at an average of 50.27.
