Ali is looking to make his international comeback early next year
Pakistan pace bowler Rahat Ali has revealed that he is looking to regain his spot on the national squad after having a dismal series against Sri Lanka.
Ali stated that he was targeting Pakistan’s tour of South Africa early next year as a possible return date, and added that he would be playing in as many domestic matches as he could in order to impress the selectors as much as possible.
PakPassion quoted Ali as saying: “My international debut against Sri Lanka did not go according to plan. In fact it was a shock to the system, as I had been bowling well in domestic cricket. However I look at the positives of my debut. I’m sure that whenever my next opportunity arises in international colours I will perform at a higher level than I did on debut, all I can do is to work hard, try and do well in domestic cricket and hope to catch the eye of the selectors with lots of wickets. There’s no doubt though that I am targeting the tour of South Africa early next year as of course Pakistan will need additional resources in the fast bowling department. I’ve made a decent start to the domestic season.”
