Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja said opening batsman Sharjeel Khan wasted his opportunity after he made his international comeback.

Sharjeel returned in the second T20 International against South Africa after last playing for Pakistan in January 2017.

However, he only made eight runs before being dismissed by George Linde.

Ramiz was less than impressed with Sharjeel’s performance and said he got out playing a “ridiculous shot”.

“Sharjeel needs to realise that he is getting an opportunity after a long time. He wasted that opportunity very easily,” Ramiz said on his YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

“No matter how big a power-hitter you are, you can’t afford to take risk on every ball as it increases your chances of getting out. You might be able to play a great innings once in a while with this approach, but your chances of failure will also be bright. He didn’t read the situation well and played a ridiculous shot.”

Sharjeel didn’t feature in any of the other matches, but Pakistan went on to win the T20 series 3-1.

  1. Ramiz whole Pakistani team got ousted with ridiculous shorts even babar azam played most worthless inning.
    I think three players now must be in Pakistani side for some times to get the more better results.
    1 Hafeex
    2 Shoaib Malik
    3 Sharjeel

    Ramiz please think longterm and keep out of short term mind set.

  2. Ramiz Sahab what do u think about guyz Haider Ali n Asif Ali? Poor Sharjeel Khan has been put under the microscope a little bit too much ever since getting selected in the squad without even getting any chance to prove his worth. The poor chap was first asked to lose weight in few days n then didn’t get selected for 3 of the 4 T20s. Played first time in South Africa n that 2 just one game n here is Mr Rameez criticizing. Instead of welcoming the guy in the team the team management has been behaving with him in a manner that gives the impression that they want to destroy n shatter his confidence completely

  3. Rizwan was stumped though he tried to return to crease and he has been playing best of cricket these days.sharjeel played a very childish shot and has proved he is good only for domestic matches.
