Sharjeel, others train under supervision of Yousuf at NHPC


Lahore: National cricketers are training under the supervision of batting coach Mohammad Yousuf at the National High-Performance Center (NHPC).

Shan Masood, Imam-ul-Haq, Sharjeel Khan, Azam Khan and Naseem Shah are among the players training under Yousuf.

Yousuf revealed that he will be working with the batters according to their needs. “Batsmen should play with balance, watching the ball release and weight transfer techniques,” Yousuf said.

“Sharjeel is working hard and we will work on him until Eid. I talked in detail with Shan Masood and we have made a training plan together. We have agreed to correct mistakes in the present and don’t worry about the past and future,” he added.

On the other hand, Sharjeel is eager to make the most out of time while working on his skills with Yousuf.

“Trainer Yasir Malik has given me an excellent fitness plan, which I am following under the supervision of Saboor Ahmed. I’ll be more likely to succeed if my fitness improves. Hence I am training to improve my fitness and skills at NHPC,” said Sharjeel.

“I am learning a lot from Yousuf bhai. He is advising me on my footwork and technique. I will also seek tips regarding power-hitting from him. Younis [Khan] bhai also helped me a lot during my time with the national team on Africa tour,” he added.
