‘Used to of getting dropped despite performing’ Sohail Khan


Karachi: Right-arm pacer Sohail Khan said he has become habitual of getting dropped from the national team despite performing at every level. 

Speaking to a local New channel, Khan expressed disappointment over his exclusion from the team national team for South Africa series without playing a single match in New Zealand.

“I am used to of getting dropped for the team despite performing. In England, I performed in side-matches, took 13 wickets in two matches but didn’t get a chance there. In New Zealand, again I didn’t get a chance due to not fitting in the team’s combination,” he shared.

“Then for South Africa series, I was told that here spin tracks will be made so I will not be a part of the team, dropped again. But, I will keep on working hard as I have talked to chief selector Mohammad Wasim and he told me that I am still there in their plans. Let’s see, what happens,” he highlighted.

Khan, 36, shared that he got a chance to work with the team’s bowling coach Waqar Younis in England and New Zealand. “Waqar Bhai worked with me in England and New Zealand. I tried to learn a few things from him. I will keep on working to make myself stronger for the comeback,” he said.

“I have improved my fitness as earlier a lot of people used to criticize me on my fitness. I have also worked on my batting and fielding. I am ready once again to make a comeback in the national team,” he concluded.
