Karachi Kings’ head coach Dean Jones revealed the reason behind continuously giving chances to Sharjeel Khan despite having watched him out of touch in the first three matches of PSL 5.
In a post-match conference in Rawalpindi, Jones highly backed the left-handed batsman and said that he is not struggling but it is his natural way of playing. “I think he is one of the best power-hitters right now. I want to prepare him for the upcoming T20 World Cup because, in my opinion, Pakistan’s national team is still not sure about who can be a good opener for them in the shorter format,” he said.
“If he wins us two to three matches, it will be enough for him to get back in rhythm. Remember, he has won me and Islamabad United, a PSL title,” he backed Khan who has so far managed to score just 41 runs in three matches.
It must be noted here that the 30-years-old cricketer has made a comeback in high-profile cricket after a gap of almost 2.5 years. He had been suspended by the PCB for his involvement in fixing scandal back in the second season of the PSL in 2017.
