Pakistan left-arm seamer Junaid Khan is extremely confident that he is capable of filling “the huge gap left by Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz” in Test cricket.
Amir announced his retirement from Test cricket at the end of July, while reports suggest that Wahab is set to follow in Amir’s footsteps in the near future.
If Wahab brings his Test career to an end, Pakistan will be on the lookout for players to replace them, and Junaid thinks he is the perfect candidate to do so.
“I always believe in hard work and I want to play cricket for Pakistan,” he told The Nation. “I know I can shoulder the burden and can fill the huge gap left by Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz, while everybody knows, Pakistan is badly missing a wicket-taking bowler up front who [can] bamboozle any batting order.
“I can assure the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) that I am the one who can resolve all problems and can provide wickets at the top. If provided with chances, I will never let the team and the country down.”
