Ramiz Raja talks about Sharjeel Khan and other cricket matters

Sharjeel Khan it seems is back in the news. In a lot of sports programs covering the Pakistan cricket a question regarding Sharjeel Khan is a must thing to happen. Fans keep on asking different sports journalist and experts about the future of Sharjeel Khan. The left handed opening batsman is currently serving a ban of five years after proven guilty in spot fixing case. Now Ramiz Raja recently has been asked a question about Sharjeel Khan as well. Ramiz these days in having a question answer session with his fans and he gets a lot of questions regarding the Asia Cup and Pakistan cricket team. One of the question was on Sharjeel Khan as well. Ramiz was asked that is there a chance for Sharjeel Khan to make it back into the Pakistan team. Now this is a question which should have not been asked from Ramiz because he has got no soft corner for the players involved in spot fixing or match fixing. We know Ramiz has got a hard stance on this one.

Ramiz even in the past was not too happy about Mohammad Amir, Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif being given a second chance. Salman Butt and Asif could not make it back into the Pakistan team but Amir did. Salman and Asif are now a part of the domestic cricket and it seems they will remain there now. The doors are closed for them towards making it back into the national side. Even the franchises in the PSL are not ready to take Salman and Asif. This is a surprise because Asif is the best of the three. He is a fantastic bowler but also a player who needs a lot of discipline as well. Ramiz feels that Sharjeel Khan should not be given a second chance. He made a huge mistake and should pay for it as well. This is a serious matter as per Ramiz. He feels that getting second chances to such players demoralize the fans a lot. Ramiz was then asked about the Pakistan team in the Asia Cup.

Ramiz feels that a few players should have been in this team. He wanted to see Mohammad Irfan and Yasir Shah in the playing eleven. On dead wickets in the UAE you need a bowler like Irfan. He is very tall and can generate bounce on those wickets which could have been handy for the Pakistan team. He is fast and currently in a really good bowling form as well. His fitness is something which should be under the radar. Because he is so tall that he falls into fitness issues on regular basis. This is something which Ramiz thinks can be the issue that Irfan is not in the team. Yasir Shah is another name which Ramiz said that could have played an important part in the Pakistan team. He played the series against Zimbabwe and in the Asia cup he could have been tried as well.
