Shehzad’s emotional note after PSL snub

Pakistan batter Ahmed Shehzad has written an emotional note after not being picked by any of the franchises in the PSL 2024 player draft. He made his last appearance in a T20I in 2019 and had been impressive in Karachi’s National T20 Cup.

He started his campaign with a solid 60 off 52 deliveries against Larkana and also smashed  81 runs against Quetta.

During the match against KR Blues on November 28, he contributed an unbeaten 72 runs for the side. He amassed 344 runs and stands sixth in the list of highest runs in the tournament.

After being ignored in the PSL 2024 player draft, he got emotional and took X to write his thoughts on this action by PSL franchises.

“A heartfelt goodbye to Pakistan Super League! I’m writing this note which I thought I wouldn’t be writing this year. Another PSL draft goes by and the same old story – didn’t get picked. God knows why,” Ahmed Shehzad said on X.

Despite his good performance on the domestic circuit for the last few years, he was excluded from the PSL.

“I have tried really hard by giving it all in the domestic circuit consistently in the last few years and did reasonably well in the National T20 Cup just before the PSL draft.”

“There seems a deliberate effort to keep me out, even when franchises have opted for other performers with inferior numbers than me. But when everything is pre-planned it doesn’t matter,” he added.

The Pakistan batter also hinted that franchises have picked other players with low performers in recent times. He concluded by saying he will reveal the reasons for his ignorance of the PSL to his fans and country.

“I don’t know whose responsibility it is to get top domestic performers in the PSL then. But I exactly know the reasons why I’m not made part of the PSL – the whole country, and my fans will know it very soon,” he concluded.

With the PSL schedule said to be announced on 20 January 2024 by PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf, the PSL season 9 is set to begin on February 13.
