    Iftikhar Ahmed speaking after his performance last night vs KK in PSL 6

    ==

    "In such tough situations one has to have confidence in oneself and when you have that confidence, you can take your team to a good finish"

    "In Pakistan I am famous as a finisher, as someone who finishes the game for his side; The role of middle-order is to take the game to the end and finish it for their side"

    "The six I played with a pull shot was one I found to be very nice"

    "I have played for Karachi Kings who became champions and was also with IU who became champions before, and I hope they will become champions again"

    "The ball was breaking and gripping in the second innings but credit to our top order who made runs and made it easier for us"

    "I am aiming to win more man of the match awards as that makes you happy, and I would also like contribute in wins for my side"

    He is not that great but I think in T20s if he given licence at the back end of an innings he could do some damage. Same applies to Asif Ali. But just keep them away from ODIs.

    He has finished numerous games for Peshawar and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa in domestic cricket bringing with him more trophies than anyone else has managed or any other city/region

    Along with Mohammad Rizwan they have bought the region to new heights. Success breeds cricketers and nearly every talented player at the moment is from Khyber which highlights this

    However, onto your statement like i said no need to get excited over 1 innings, none of those guys (including Ifti) unfortunately are quite ready for international cricket. But as a person i'm sorry i don't quite have respect for Ifti and his constant lies about his questionable age he reckons he is, no respect for liars.

    No matter who you name, Ifitkhar has actually done better than all the youngsta beauties that were hyped on this forum.

    People were crazy for Khushdil lol.

    Today there's not a single player who can replace Iftikhar.

    That's how poor our T20 team is and what mess Mickey n Sarfraz combo left for us, thinking the fake rankings would actually give us great T20 players.

    That's because in a Pakistan shirt he is coming up against top class fast bowlers who will have seen he likes to drag everything to leg. A bit of seam or swing away, or a bit of extra bounce outside off stump and he'll be helpless.

    Show us some offside shots man, then come back and talk.

    Iftikhar "Finisher"

    Oh na bhai na, you don't deserve a place on the national side, there is something very wrong with your skills, but a still skilled person like Misbah fails to see that and always picks you in the side, don't know why. Let alone finisher you aren't fit to carry drinks either.

    I usually avoid age-related discussions but this guy's age-fudging is straight-up disrespectful.

    Lying by 8-15 years is ridiculous.

    Iftikhar Ahmed is back with Islamabad United in the HBL Pakistan Super League 6. The 30-year-old middle-order batsman had won the 2018 edition with the franchise. He is excited to be donning United’s red and gold and is hopeful of playing a productive role in their ongoing campaign.

    “It feels good,” he said about joining United. “I have played before for Islamabad [United] and won a title with them in Karachi. The support staff and the team management is very helpful. It was my wish to play for Islamabad United again. I hope that Islamabad [United] will lift the trophy again.”

    Iftikhar stroked a crucial 49 not out against Karachi Kings – for whom he turned out in 2016, 2019 and 2020 – to help United surmount a daunting 197-run target with five balls spare in their second outing of the season. He struck three sixes and two fours and stitched match-altering stand of 92 with Hussain Talat over his 37-ball knock.

    Reflecting on that match, Iftikhar said: “As a professional, when you perform against any team, you get happy. I was in Karachi Kings for three years, so when I did well against them, it helped boost my confidence.

    “My role as a middle-order batsman is to take the game deep and finish it. So, I try to build the innings by scoring run-a-ball early on and then increase my scoring rate.”

    To a question about how he copes with criticism, Iftikhar said that rather than taking it negatively, he uses it as a driving force to improve his performances.

    “When I am criticised, I work harder,” he said. “I try to prove the criticism wrong with my performances.

    This edition of the HBL PSL provides a brilliant opportunity to all the participating players to stake a claim in the national side for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup later this year with outstanding performances. Naturally, Iftikhar is eyeing a spot.

    “I have been part of the national team’s set-up for the past two years and I am determined to represent Pakistan in the T20 World Cup,” he said.

    Iftikhar Ahmed speaking after his performance last night vs KK in PSL 6

    ==

    "In such tough situations one has to have confidence in oneself and when you have that confidence, you can take your team to a good finish"

    "In Pakistan I am famous as a finisher, as someone who finishes the game for his side; The role of middle-order is to take the game to the end and finish it for their side"

    "The six I played with a pull shot was one I found to be very nice"

    "I have played for Karachi Kings who became champions and was also with IU who became champions before, and I hope they will become champions again"

    "The ball was breaking and gripping in the second innings but credit to our top order who made runs and made it easier for us"

    "I am aiming to win more man of the match awards as that makes you happy, and I would also like contribute in wins for my side"
    Wonder if this interview will be one of the most abiding memories of PSL 6?

    Nowhere near international standard but he can be a handy player at T20 league level. He should forget about international cricket.

    "Iftikhar Ahmed's last few performances have not been that impressive which would have allowed to him to maintain his position in the side, as the position he plays at the strike rate needs to be higher - this is something he will need to improve"
