Watch: Sharjeel Khan talks about impressive 20-ball 38 against United


Rawalpindi: The explosive left-handed opener of Karachi Kings, Sharjeel Khan is confident after providing a great batting display at the top in their win by five wickets against Islamabad United.

The 30-year-old who smashed 38 in just 20 balls which included three fours and four massive sixes, talked about a great second over in 184 chase in which he smashed Rumman Raees for 14 runs which included two fours and a massive six over square leg.

He pointed out the fact of playing a lot of cricket with Rumman so the left-hander knew about the length he tends to bowl.

“The first ball of the over was brilliantly middle but it went towards the cover fielder, the following ball was in my zone and I pound on it for the first boundary. I tried to punch on the back foot for the second one for the second four whereas the six I hit was a shot ball directed towards my body, it got middle and went over the square-leg,” he said in a video released by Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Sharjeel emphasized the need of staying at the crease in the 184 chase.”It was about to access the situation initially and provide a great start to the team. The momentum was required in the start and we all saw that other batsmen got settled and play their shots freely, he added.

“I am looking to repeat the same performance and prolong my stay in the upcoming too,” he concluded.

Kings will take on Peshawar Zalmi today in Pindi Cricket Stadium at Rawalpindi for their fifth match of PSL 5.
