Dean Jones is collaboratively working with many of the T20 leagues around the world. He is a well-known name from the world of T20 cricket who recently was assigned as the head coach of one of PSL’s franchises, Karachi Kings. Having experience in the T20 format, his analysis says that it will be hard for Pakistan to win the ICC T20 World Cup without Sharjeel Khan.
Sharjeel Khan has done really well in PSL as declared by Jones. He says that the King’s management worked really hard on the betterment of his fitness level. According to Dean Jones, Sharjeel might be muscled up but he is really a hard-hitter of the ball who keeps the motive of changing the game strategies from losing to winning.
Sharjeel, it will lose 5-6 kg, that will be enough for him as all the hard knockers are muscled up.
“He’s not gonna be as fit as Wasim Akram or Asif Iqbal. He is a rock-solid unit and can hit the ball really hard,” he said.
“I have visuals of him doing pushups and runups. We worked hard on his fitness during the PSL,” he said.
“Mostly power-hitters in the world are muscled up. You don’t need to have Marathon players playing cricket, I think he needs to lose weight around 5 to 6kgs which would be enough for him to be back in the mainstream cricket,” he concluded.
It is to be noted that the mega ICC event, T2o World Cup, has been organized for a window of October. However, the health crisis can cause serious disruptions in the schedule and can drag the tournament ahead to 2021. Indian Premier League (IPL) can be one of the massive reasons why the T20 World Cup will move ahead as the Indian Cricketing Authorities want to organize the cash-rich league before kicking off of the T20 World Cup so it can serve as practicing platform for their players.
