KARACHI: Karachi Kings hitter Sharjeel Khan said his heyday had raised his spirits and he would try to bring momentum to the rest of the tournament.
“Thank God I played a great inning,” said Sharjeel after a fine of 105, the second in PSL’s career, against Islamabad on Wednesday night.
Regardless of the tonne, the Karachi Kings were brought down by Islamabad United when their center-line demonstrated extraordinary maturity to hit a target run after 197 having lost five goals.
‘I’m waiting for a round like that because it adds to your confidence. I feel very healthy now. I will try to bring the same momentum to the rest of the event as well, ‘said Sharjeel.
“While representing Islamabad United, I scored a goal in the first century PSL and today I scored against Islamabad United and that was great,” said Sharjeel.
Sharjeel said appearing at PSL increased the players’ confidence. “ I’ve had a good domestic season and have been playing cricket for the last five to six months. But appearing on this platform leaves no doubt. It doubles your confidence, ‘says Sharjeel.
He said that the Karachi Kings would learn from their mistakes. “ Where we make mistakes, we will try to resolve them. The best thing is that good matches are being held and the teams are all equal, ‘said Sharjeel.
Sharjeel shares an opening record of 176 with Babar Azam who chipped in with a solid 62.
He says he enjoyed opening with Babar. ‘Babar and I have had a good relationship for the past six to seven years. We played together for ZTBL and also for last year’s Kings. As batting partners, we enjoy each other’s company on the pitch. I have a good combination with Babar, ‘said the left-hander.
Sharjeel said they had a great start when they won their first match against Quetta. ‘You have ups and downs in this type of cricket. But we will try our level best to enter 100 per cent, ‘said Sharjeel.
