KARACHI: A well known name in first-class Pakistan cricket, pacer Sadaf Hussain is eagerly waiting for PCB to notice him and call him on the basis of his remarkable performance so far.
Despite of completing 400 domestic wickets in only 90 matches, Hussain is still counting the days to be selected in national team. The 29 year old who is currently playing for Northern, achieved this noteworthy feat when he took wickets of Sindh’s Khurram Manzoor and Ramiz Aziz on Tuesday.
The fast bowler told the media on still not being noticed by PCB that,
“I have been performing in all the seasons, yet I haven’t been picked to play for Pakistan. I don’t know why but my job is to keep performing and it’s up to the PCB to select me”.
“Obviously, it hurts when you are not picked even after performing for so long but it motivates me to keep doing well and better than before”.
Hussain was once considered as one of the contenders to get the Pakistani cap however selectors were yet to be dazzled by his presentation and fitness. He was once called for a camp but wasn’t named in the squad.
The management of the PCB says, he is the bowler of favourable conditions but, the pacer has refused their perception. Hussain said,
“I have played in all sort of conditions and have taken wickets all over, so this is incorrect to say that I am a limited conditional bowler. I’m hopeful that one day I might be selected for the national team of Pakistan.”
