Former Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal said it’s time for the power-hitting duo of Sharjeel Khan and Azam Khan to be given an opportunity to play international cricket again.

Sharjeel, who generally opens the batting, last represented the men in green in August 2021.

As for Azam, who is the son of former Pakistan captain Moin Khan, he usually plays in the middle order. He last played international cricket in July 2021.

With both players possessing plenty of power and having showcased what kind of damage they can inflict at the domestic level, Ajmal has called on the national selectors to recall them to the Pakistan team.

“Sharjeel Khan, Azam Khan can be given chances,” he said on his YouTube channel as quoted by NDTV.

Sharjeel and Azam will have an opportunity to impress the selectors in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), where they are playing for the Karachi Kings and Islamabad United respectively.

It should be noted that Ajmal is Islamabad United’s assistant coach.
