Pakistan batsman Usman Salahuddin admitted that he is pleased with how he performed during the domestic season.
He noted that some of the top highlights included finishing as the fourth-highest run-scorer in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and scoring a career-best 219 not out for Central Punjab in the semi-final against Southern Punjab.
Overall, Salahuddin amassed 924 runs in 11 matches, which included his unbeaten knock of 219 and eight half-centuries, at an average of 48.63.
Despite his outstanding campaign, the 30-year-old was not picked for the recent two-Test series against South Africa.
In fact, Salahuddin last played international cricket in June 2018.
“Yes, it’s been another good season for me. Amongst the achievements this year, I would list the fact that I finished fourth in the list of highest run-scorers in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, I scored 219 not out in the semi-final against Southern Punjab which was extremely important for my team and we reached the final of the tournament which of course was a tie,” he told PakPassion.
“I had been told to up my strike-rate this season and it was something that I worked on and achieved. I worked on a couple of issues with my batting and I am satisfied with how things turned out.”
