Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Asif has revealed that he is looking to revive his career by playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) next year.
Asif, who was banned for five years for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010, admitted that he closely followed this year’s PSL and is eager to be part of the tournament in 2020.
“I have continued my practice to keep myself fit for the next season. I have keenly followed the PSL this season, and hope to be a part of it next season,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk.
Meanwhile, the 36-year-old also called on Pakistan to avoid including players in the Test squad based on their performances in Twenty20 cricket.
“[The] quantity of bowlers has increased, while the quality has gone down,” he said. “You need experience of around 50 first-class matches to win Tests. Thus, we should not include bowlers who perform in [the] PSL straight into the Test side.”
