Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad made an extremely bold claim when a fan asked him to retire, saying he still has “12 years left in me”.
Shehzad has not played for Pakistan since June 2018 and was in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons last year.
In July 2018, he tested positive for a banned substance and was subsequently banned for four months.
However, since he violated the terms of his four-month ban, he was further suspended for six weeks.
But, Shehzad made an impressive return at this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he scored 311 runs in eight matches for the Quetta Gladiators, which included four fifties, at an average of 51.83.
He has continued playing domestic cricket since then, but was not picked for the World Cup.
While the 27-year-old is determined to revive his international career, he didn’t take kindly to a fan telling him to retire.
Oho. Unfortunately I still have 12 years left in me I believe.
U got to live with it😨 https://t.co/yWAyTEmBM8

“Unfortunately I still have 12 years left in me I believe. [You have] got to live with it,” he said on Twitter.
