Pakistan big-hitter Sohaib Maqsood said losing his place in the national team no longer affects him.

This comes after he was recalled for the upcoming tours of England and the West Indies at the expense of Haider Ali.

Haider was withdrawn from the national team after he and fellow Peshawar Zalmi player Umaid Asif breached the Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) Health and Safety Protocols by meeting with people outside the bio-secure bubble.

Maqsood has been in brilliant form as he scored 428 runs in 12 games for the Multan Sultans in the PSL, 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.

“Losing my place in the side no longer affects me the way it used to as I’m making a comeback after five-and-a-half years. Hopefully this approach will improve my chances of doing well,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Pakistan will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against England. The ODI series will begin on July 8 and conclude on July 13, while the T20 series will be held from July 16 to 20.

The tour of the West Indies will consist of five T20 Internationals and two Tests, with the T20 series getting underway on July 27 and ending on August 3.

As for the Test series, it will start on August 12 and conclude on August 24.
