Pakistan great Wasim Akram said opening batsman Sharjeel Khan makes it difficult for himself to score runs at times.

Wasim noted that if bowlers “keep taking the ball away from him by bowling short of a good length”, Sharjeel will struggle to make runs.

He added that the 31-year-old “doesn’t charge down the wicket, make room or go towards the off-side while batting”, which limits his scoring options.

“As a bowler, if you keep taking the ball away from him by bowling short of a good length, it becomes difficult for the batsman to score,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

“Sharjeel doesn’t charge down the wicket, make room or go towards the off-side while batting. I hope Sharjeel works on this.”

Sharjeel is currently part of the T20 squad for the tours of England and the West Indies.

Pakistan lost the ODI series against England 3-0 and will now be looking to bounce back in the three-match T20 series, which begins on Friday.

  1. People must not ask waseem akram such questions. He feels he is best expert of cricket. Ofcoure overated himself. What abt Chiris Gyle. Most statationery, most distructive n most successful batsmen in T20 cricket, viv Richard, micheal hussy, michael beven mark waugh. They all were somewhat stationery at the crease still most of them among top batsmen. Hand and eye coordination is top essence of success. This sharjeel has got. Little coaching. Miky was best. Pakistan cannot progress under local coaches be it cricket or hockey.
