Former Pakistan Captain, Shoaib Malik, is hoping to become part of the national squad once again, after leading his side to an ODI and Twenty20 domestic championship.
Malik, led Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), to the National One-day Cup title, in which he was the leading scorer, while also being second-highest wicket taker.
Just two weeks later, Malik also led the Sialkot Stallions to the National Super Eight T-20 Cup.
Since then, Malik has been called for a fitness assessment at the National Cricket Academy.
If Malik does get selected, he is hoping to bring a new spark of life to the Pakistan team.
“I know I have a lot of cricket left. The PCB knows what I am capable of and how I can make a difference by being in the team. I am fit and in the best form. There is always a bad patch in every player’s life but that doesn’t mean he is done with his cricket – that’s not the case,” he said.
Malik, last played for Pakistan in the UAE, when they took on England, however, he was dropped from the squad for the recent Asia Cup tournament.
“I am very motivated to try and get back into the side. There is always a time in your life when you are tested but what’s important is that you stand tall and look for the best out of the worst. I have played some great match-winning knocks for the country that earned me a great reputation both on and off the field,” Malik added.
Malik is looking to put his last comeback attempts behind him, as he failed to impress against Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and England, and look towards finally getting his name back on the national squad roster.
