Multan Sultans bowling coach Azhar Mahmood said people need to admire the brilliance of big-hitting batsman Sohaib Maqsood.

Maqsood had an outstanding Pakistan Super League (PSL) campaign, where he scored 428 runs in 12 games for the 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.

Maqsood, who last played international cricket in January 2016, was recalled to the Pakistan ODI and T20 squads 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Haider was withdrawn from the national team after he and fellow Peshawar Zalmi player Umaid Asif breached the Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) Health and Safety Protocols by meeting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.

“The brilliance of Sohaib Maqsood to admire as well,” Mahmood wrote in his blog for 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.
