Karachi: Out-of-favour Pakistani batsman Nasir Jamshed, who was ignored by the country’s selectors after a disappointing 2015 World Cup in Australia, is desperate to make it to the national squad and for that he has vowed to give a good performance in the domestic circle. After the retirement of key openers like Saeed Anwar and Aamir Sohail, Jamshed’s attacking approach at the top of the order was praised by many and it was believed that he has a bright future. He, however, was discarded from the national squad following his disappointing performance in the 2015 World Cup. READ: Nasir Jamshed gets married to Samara Afzal

Reflecting his views on the same, he admitted he is out of the squad because of his performance, but promised not to repeat the same mistakes when he would come to bat again in the national colours, pakpassion.net reported. Jamshed, who is currently playing club cricket in England, is trying to improve his technique so that he can comeback to the national side. The left-handed batsman expressed his desire to return to his absolute best so that he could survive in the international cricket once he makes a return.

Jamshed has played two Test matches for Pakistan in which he scored only 51 runs at an average of 12.75. IN 48 ODIs that he has featured in so far, the 26-year-old has scored 1,418 runs at 30.83 and a strike rate of 75.39, which is much less considering that he is an aggressive batsman. He has eight fifties in ODIs. Having played 18 T20Is, he has made 363 runs at 21.35. He has scored runs at a strike rate of 113.44, and has two half centuries to his name.
