When Shan Masood lost his loved sister, he gained a completely new perspective on life outside cricket. The lanky left-hander talked about how privileged he felt to be playing for Pakistan and how he does not want to carry the weight of expectation as he prepared to make his T20I debut against England.
Because of his outstanding performance in all three forms this year, including the Pakistan Super League, Shan, who is known as a specialist test opener, has returned to the T20 team as a middle-order batsman.
“I have learned a lot with time and have grown as a person and player. They are more important things in life than cricket so I just feel blessed to be doing what I do,” Shan said at a press conference in Karachi on Saturday when asked if he was feeling any pressure on his comeback.
He also made a passing reference to the passing this year of his sister, who was a remarkable person and dear to him.
“My sister’s passing away made me look at things differently. I just feel now it is great to be getting a chance to play for your country or your favourite sport and earning from it but there is more to life than success and failure in cricket,” he said.
Shan Masood made a comeback to the T20 side as a middle-order batsman:
Shan Masood, who had been absent since the beginning of 2021, has been called up to the Pakistan T20 team and is now a member of the World Cup squad.
Since Shan Masood excelled in all three forms this year, including the Pakistan Super League, the Vitality Blast in England, and the National T20 Championship, Shan, who is best known as a specialist Test opener, has returned to the T20 team as a middle-order batsman.
He stated that if he does not perform well in the middle order against England at home, he will not point the finger at anyone.
