ISLAMABAD: Young talented batsman Nasir Jamshed wants to make a comeback in the 2015 World Cup to be staged in New Zealand and Australia saying before the mega event he aims to play against Australia in the series in the UAE.
Nasir Jamshed, who made his international debut against Zimbabwe in an ODI in 2008, said at the end of the day it is up to the selectors and the captain on who they select in the team. “All I can do is to perform in domestic cricket and club cricket,” he told Pakpassion.net.
The opening batsman said at the moment there is no domestic cricket in Pakistan which is a problem. “However I am training at the National Academy on regular basis with the coaches and I am looking out for opportunities at leagues around the World,” he said.
Speaking of the appointment of batting consultant Zaheer Abbas by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), he said a batting coach should be with the team on a full time basis.
“Sometimes batsmen make errors that they don’t realize but if a batting coach is with the team then he can spot that issue and help to rectify it,” he said.
Nasir, who hit a memorable ODI century against India at the 2012 Asia Cup in March 2012, said it is a good move by the PCB to appoint a bating consultant. “The batting consultant or coach can provide advice and help that sometimes you need as a batsman,” he said.
Nasir, who is disappointed for not being a part of the Twenty20 World Cup for Pakistan, said watching your colleagues in action and thinking that you could have been a part of the team isn’t easy for him. “The onus is on me to eradicate those flaws and come back into
international cricket as a better and complete batsman,” he said.
