    [VIDEOS]"I wasn’t aware of new fitness standards when I came back after three years" : Sharjeel Khan

    Karachi: Hard-hitting batsman Shajeel Khan said he always wanted to play under the captaincy of former Test cricketer, Inzamam-ul-Haq.

    Speaking to ARY News, Khan said he idolized Inzamam who was one of the greatest batsmen of Pakistan ever. “I wish I could have played under the captaincy of Inzamam. He was not only a good batsman but a great mentor too,” said the cricketer.

    Talking about his fitness, Khan said he was not aware of fitness standards after making comeback in competitive cricket. “I wasn’t aware of new fitness standards when I came back after three years. But, now I am working hard on my fitness and I will soon be fulfilling the required fitness standard,” said Khan who scored a First-Class Century after almost 7 years while representing Sindh against Southern Punjab in the Fourth Round of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

    Khan was excited while sharing his feelings after lifting the PSL 5 trophy with his team Karachi Kings. The cricket also said the only cricket league of Pakistan has become a brand now worldwide.

    “I was all with it and lifting the PSL 5 trophy was a big moment for all of us. We missed Dean Jones as he played a huge role in this victory,” he said.

    “As far as PSL is concerned, it has now become a brand worldwide. The competitiveness and talent here make it one of the best leagues in the world,” he concluded.

    The worst thing is he came back and he was out of shape. The guy was out of the game and still had no desire to get in shape.

    Oh yeah it was established in the 2 years Sharjeel was banned that being fat is not the desired fitness level for an international athlete. Cut him some slack guys.

    Sharjeel's idea of a balanced diet is a paratha in each hand so it's not surprising these "new fitness standards" are a revelation to him.

    Pakistan apparently has these supreme fitness standards, and then we are fed Faheem Ashrafs with their zero cricketing athleticism, Abid Ali’s with their pot bellies and Moobs, and Mohammad Irfan’s who are barely still managing to walk.

    Seems like PCB can choose whoever they think is fit enough and who isn’t.

    Pretty insulting to plead ignorance like this lol. The guy can't be bothered. Ironically he lacks the hunger to change his fitness levels.

    Get slim or stay in domestics. While it may be excusable to be slightly off fitness standards if you're performing, to come back after a fixing ban and still look like a tellytubby is unforgiveable.

    If Pakistan were to let Sharjeel make a comeback while in this physical shape it'd be a very significant backwards step.

    Mickey made Sharjeel an integral part of the limited overs team and also gave him his test debut. And Sharjeel has similar physique then.

    Shahid Afridi has amazing genetics - the guy was never unfit his whole life. He could actually eat anything and still stay fit.

    So what he is saying is that I wish I played under Inzi's captaincy because he too was a fatty and would have accepted me without the need for me to work on my fitness! This is so comical

    As for not knowing that the national team requires fitness standards to be met well, what the heck was he doing for 3 years? Sounds like he didn't bother taking any positive steps to return, which shows a worrying lack of commitment.

    Even if he didn't try to find out what he needed to do to make a comeback, getting fit is as obvious as it gets when it comes to being a sportsman. It's like saying oh sorry, I didn't realise that to be a doctor, I needed to know a bit about medicine!

    Mediocre batsman, dodgy character, terrible fitness, poor attitude, 31 year old etc.

    There is nothing likable about him and I cannot believe he has fans because he hit 3 impact-less half centuries in Australia.

    This guy has failed for about 90% of his international career that started in 2013.

    Luckily there is a 99% chance that he has already played his last match for Pakistan.

    If he is officially 31 that means he is actually 34-35, and he considering his fitness, he moves around like a 45 year old already.

    He is a poor batsman and recently flopped in PSL. On top of that, Misbah hates him.

    He needs a miracle to get a sniff of the national team in the next 2-3 years and after that, he will be reducing to playing club cricket in Norway or Denmark.

    I can see him leaving Pakistan for good very soon.

    Enough of this guy, PCT should move on. Thanks to Misbah for being firm on fitness levels and also this is the chance where they can implement the rule of no second chance for fixers in national team.

    Amir will be the first and last that was given the second chance.

    Sharjeel Khan is acting as if he was banned in 1989 and then sent to some Andaman Islands type place and when he came back he saw the world has changed.

    A 45-run partnership for the fourth wicket between Saad Ali and Sharjeel steadied the ship before a direct-hit from the boundary rope by Tayyab Tahir, fielding as a substitute, ran out Sharjeel, who struck 11 fours and three sixes in his 138-ball stay at the crease.

    He is such a talent. May he become more consistent and find his way back into the team. His offside play looks better, but a bit loose, from evidence.

    From PCB Report of Day 2, Round 8, QeA20

    A fantastic century by Sharjeel Khan gave Sindh a 150-run first innings lead over Northern at the National Stadium.

    The opener crunched 17 fours and three sixes in front of the broadcast cameras, which telecasted the action live in Pakistan through PTV Sports and beamed delayed stream across the globe through PCB’s YouTube channel, in his 164-ball knock that had Sindh placed at a comfortable 353 for five.

    Over the course of his second century of the season, Sharjeel stitched partnerships worth 87 and 91 with Azizullah (16) and Saud Shakeel, who made 81 off 139, after Sindh started the day on 40 for one.

    You have to keep in mind that he is scoring these runs when the top 35-40 domestic players are on New Zealand tour (Senior team and Shaheens) and 6-8 are playing in the Lanka Premier League.

    To further my point, 2 of the 4 specialist bowlers for Northern are rookies. One is making his FC debut and the other is playing his second FC match. I would take these performances with a bucket of salt.

    Good century but his dismissal today was pointlessly soft and his fitness remains unacceptable. Sharjeel can make the national team if he wants it, but i think he wants Nihari more.

    I understand it's not necessarily elite competition, but him scoring consistent runs is at least a start. It's why I said he still needs a big PSL6 is he wants to be in contention for WT20. Given Fakhar's lack of form, there's an opening for Sharjeel. He's shown he can succeed in international cricket before, so he's going to have stronger case than most if he keeps performing.

    The only top bowlers he's not playing are Shaheen, Naseem and Abbas. Shaheen and Naseem have barely played domestic cricket anyways. Amir and Wahab have retired, and I'm sure Sharjeel would have given the current version of Amir a sound thrashing. In terms of spinners, for some reason our best spinners are currently playing domestic whilst the average ones are representing Pakistan.

    If Musa was playing QEA, Sharjeel would certainly have hit 100 runs off his bowling alone.

    Such a shame he did have a talent for timing the ball and can hit big , I think spin bowling was an issue for him and he tend to find the edges too but he was still solid

    It's a shame he never took care of his fitness if he was fit he could have been very valuable for Pakistan

    Still only 31 (or maybe higher real age.) still has 3-4 years in him. I'd invest behind him. He is a talent.

    There is nothing likable about him and I cannot believe he has fans because he hit 3 impact-less half centuries in Australia.

    This guy has failed for about 90% of his international career that started in 2013.

    Luckily there is a 99% chance that he has already played his last match for Pakistan.
    Haha, big call there. I agree Sharjeel’s statement is ridiculous, but, in all likelihood, if Fakhar continues to fail, Sharjeel will have a big PSL and be in the Pak squad for the next T20 world cup or the one in Australia the year after Lets see if my prediction pans out.

    You’re making him sound like Anwar+Warner hybrid and not Sharjeel Khan.

    Well I'm not exactly saying he'd be dispatching Starc and Archer to all parts of the ground. The concern was that his performances shouldn't be taken too seriously as the 'top' domestic bowlers aren't currently playing on the circuit. Given how poor Amir was in National T20, and how poor Musa is generally, I'm confident in saying he would demolish them in this form.

    Sharjeel is significantly outperforming the other domestic openers including the hyped youngsters Zaryab and Yousuf.

    Not only averaging close to 50, but striking at 80 !

    Zaryab is decent at best i dont see him playing for Pakistan. I will be surprised if he does. Umair after a decent start has fallen away.

    He failed in the domestic T20 series right before the selections were announced.

    Maybe this will help:-

    Khusdil Shah and Abdullah didn't take 💰 to underperform.

    P.S.:-

    Stop glorifying sell outs and fixers.
    It is frustrating to see the social media campaign glorifying Md Asif, he was a good bowler no doubt about it but was an equally good sell out. Pakistan cricket needs to move on.


    Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness

    Hopefully he doesn't come but wouldn't be surprised if the fixer plays international cricket due again to due our lack of options in LO cricket.

    Pakistan’s fitness standards must be higher than India’s if Sharma gets picked but Sharjeel Khan doesn’t due to being fat.

    It's beyond you why we didn't pick a sumo wrestler who also had years to get into shape prior to returning to cricket?? Not that hard to figure out surely bhai.

    Do have to say he's looked excellent when he hits them cleanly. Domestic bowlers are genuinely afraid to bowl to him because he isn't cowed by the situation, if it's there to hit he'll hit it.

    I wonder if fitness rules can be relaxed for t20, but with the added caveat that this guy will never get anywhere near anything longer? It probably sends the wrong message through the system though. Every other top team has 11 athletes playing for them so we should aim for the same.

    Sharjeel has been working very hard on his fitness from day one. He scored like 17 in last fitness tests held several months back. Was never in Misbah's favourites and hence would rot in domestics when inferior players play ahead of him

    Has played enough and has worked decently on his fitness post comeback. If its not something non cricket related then I think he should be picked vs SA atleast in one format.

    Otherwise we can always fast track another teenager straight to the national team.
