Sharjeel may get eligible to play for Pakistan in September 2019

Pakistan’s left-handed opener, Sharjeel Khan may get eligible to represent Pakistan by September next year if he goes through Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) rehabilitation process.

Khan, who has been suspended from any sort of competitive cricket for being involved in spot-fixing during the second season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), has assured complete cooperation to the PCB chairman in a meeting, a leading newspaper reported.

“Sharjeel has no intentions to challenge his suspension and is willing to enter the PCB rehabilitation programme. The left-hander has formally assured the PCB of his cooperation in this regard”, a source was quoted.

“He (Sharjeel) wants an early return to domestic cricket, prior to the culmination of the 30-month ban, like Mohammad Amir”, it added.

Khan has represented Pakistan in one Test, 25 ODIs and 15 T20Is, where he has scored 44, 812 and 360 runs respectively.
