Pakistan batsman Sohaib Maqsood said it is easier to be consistent when scoring at a strike-rate of around 120 since a player doesn’t need to play any risky shots.
Maqsood said this after his magnificent performance in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he scored 428 runs in 12 matches for the Multan Sultans, which included five half-centuries, at an average of 47.55 and a strike-rate of 156.77.
Thanks to his efforts, the Sultans won their first-ever PSL title as they beat the Peshawar Zalmi by 47 runs.
“If you are playing at a strike-rate of around 120, then it is easier to be more consistent and play risk-free shots,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
The 34-year-old last played international cricket in January 2016, but could make his comeback soon as he replaced Haider Ali in Pakistan’s squad for the tours of England and the West Indies.
Haider was withdrawn from the national team after he and fellow Zalmi player Umaid Asif breached the PSL’s Health and Safety Protocols by meeting with people outside the bio-secure bubble.
In addition to that, Haider and Umaid were suspended for the PSL final.
