Pakistan opening batsman Khurram Manzoor said he has scored 24 centuries in his last 48 innings as he seeks a comeback to the national team.
He added that he has done very well in T20 cricket as he has the most hundreds among openers in the National T20 Cup.
The 36-year-old has been a consistent performer at the domestic level, but has failed to earn a recall to the national team. In fact, his last match for the men in green came all the way back in March 2016.
“I have 24 hundreds in [my] last 48 innings, I have scored the most hundreds as an opener in [the] National T20 [Cup],” Manzoor was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan just finished playing three T20Is against Afghanistan in Sharjah and lost the series 2-1.
Their next assignment will be five T20Is and five ODIs against New Zealand from April to May.
