Pak Cricket: Mohammad Asif struggling to make a comeback in squad
ISLAMABAD, June 21 (APP): Pak Cricket: Mohammad Asif struggling to make a comeback in squad
Pacer Muhammad Asif is gearing up to play for Christiana Cricket Club in Oslo in an effort to be fit and ready for the upcoming season of domestic cricket in Pakistan which is scheduled to start in September.
Asif's main focus is to return to form in time for national domestic cricket season. From there, he might have a chance at regaining his position in the first team too as he is targeting a place in the squad for Pakistan's tours to New Zealand and Australia.
"Hopefully I will do well in Pakistan and get selected for the national team for the tours to New Zealand and Australia," Asif told Cricinfo.
When asked for his opinion on former teammate Amir's return to international cricket, Asif expressed nothing but support for the youngster.
"I am happy for Amir, and for my team. England are playing well now, but we have got a good bowling side better than Sri Lanka's so hopefully Amir, Yasir Shah and Wahab Riaz will give England a time," he said.
He said his dream is to make a comeback and play for three to four years. "I want to play a good standard of cricket again that's my dream," he said.
Asif has so far played 23 Tests, 38 One-Day Internationals and 11 T20Is for Pakistan and has 165 wickets to his name across formats.
