LAHORE: Former Pakistan opening batsman Mohsin Khan came down heavily on the fitness standards of the current Pakistan team.

Mohsin said eight out of eleven Pakistan cricketers playing international cricket do not match the fitness standards. Mohsin, who represented Pakistan in 48 Tests and 75 ODIs between 1977 and 1986, pointed out the concerns at the top of the order for Pakistan and put his weight firmly behind Sharjeel Khan.

“Opening has always been an issue for Pakistan. Sharjeel is a talented player. His fitness should not be a major concern because I think eight players in Pakistan’s playing eleven don’t meet the required standards so it does not make much of a difference,” Mohsin was quoted as saying. Left-hander Sharjeel has played 1 Test, 25 ODIs and 15 T20Is so far for Pakistan and was last seen in national colours back in 2017 in an ODI against Australia Mohsin, who was also the chief selector of Pakistan and an interim coach of the side in 2011, lashed out at current Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq for accepting the dual role of the coach and chief selector.
