Key Highlights

  • Opening Batter Ahmed Shehzad has recently received a strong reaction from the PCB chief for his statement against former player Waqar Younis
  • Ramiz while posing the reaction took example of Shan Masood
  • In response to the statement made Shehzad has urged the PCB the willingness to discuss the issue face to face

Opening batter Ahmed Shehzad has recently been the target of the fuming PCB Chief Ramiz Raja. Ramiz was seen in a strong reaction against of what Shehzad had said in his recent statement about the former Waqar Younis.

But before coming to the point of the main subject, let know a brief about Shehzad. The 30-year-old Shehzad has been out of the game since 2019 but if somebody asks how precisely, this starts way back in 2016 when the cricketer took a break. At that time, the coach Waqar Younis was the coach and he suggested Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal to make a comeback through the domestic channel.

But it seems, Shehzad mistook the suggestion given to him by Waqar saying that the break taken at the that time was ruined his career or to be exact dented his career. Now what was then, the ex. colleague of Waqar Younis, Ramiz Raja did not take the statement made by the youngster very well and posed a strong reaction to it by stating “When people get frustrated, they start blaming everyone”. Look below at what he said exactly,

“See, I too have made comebacks. People get frustrated. They start blaming everyone. I think introspection is needed. When you are out of the team, your patience gets tested, your temperament gets tested, your hard work gets tested. So, my message to him is, ‘let the bat do the talking’. Keep scoring, there is no way you will be dropped from the team,”

Ramiz then after, took example of Shan Masood lecturing Shehzad about his comeback and the number of runs that he has made and so on.

In response to the flak received by the PCB chief himself, Shehzad reciprocated saying,

“I have not seen the report myself but a PCB official told me that these remarks have been said regarding me. But I believe that these things should be discussed face-to-face and I am ready to take on that challenge. Then we will see who is right and who is wrong.

“Maybe I have more things to say and I might even have a bigger reach than them but I opt to stay quiet because you need to live up to your own standards. But their words hurt my career, especially since I was not allowed to present my case.”

By Shehzad’s gesture and the statement made it seems there’s still some story to be revealed. At the moment nobody can say who is wrong and who is right but one thing is for sure, the Ramiz will not take this on a lighter note.
