Sharjeel Khan played a brilliant knock of 62 against the Cricket Australia to ensure that he continues his good batting form. Sharjeel Khan innings was pretty special. He came as the opener in his usual position and did some really good work.

Sharjeel played some really good shots all around the park. The best thing about him was that he looked confident. In fact the whole Pakistani unit was looking really good. Despite being thrashed 3-0 in the test series Pakistan is trying to make a comeback in the limited overs cricket.

Pakistan has a good start here before they will face Australia in the first ODI. Cricket Australia did get a defeat by the hands of Pakistan in the practice game before the test series started and even now they have again been defeated easily by Pakistan. The good thing was that for Pakistan both their batting and bowling worked this time. They saw a failure especially in the bowling during the test series. Interestingly before the series started it was Pakistan’s batting which people thought that might come under the hammer on Australian tracks.

But even the bowling did took a hard beating for Pakistan. There is no Pakistani bowler who took double figure number of wickets in the three match test series. Pakistan had the names like Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah in their lineup. This is where Pakistan struggled as these three players could not takes wicket in bulk. Now Imad Wasim and Hasan Ali are there and they have picked up a couple of wickets in this game to break the shackles. Pakistan will have to play really well against Australia.

Sharjeel Khan showed today that he is in good form. It was a really well constructed typical ODI knock. It was not one of those in which he just comes out and starts blasting the ball around. He took singles and doubles to ensure that he was getting settled on the track with each ball played.

Sharjeel did hit his boundaries but they were not risky. He tried to hit the ball in the balls or on the full and over the ropes. He knew that Australians are really good in the field and have this tendency to convert the semi half chances into full ones. This is what matters the most. Sharjeel Khan definitely is one of the better openers for Pakistan in the recent past. He has played well in the limited overs cricket and even in the third test, the second innings batting showed his abilities.
