The player has been out of favor for a long time, and former coach Waqar Younis advise him to return to domestic cricket in 2016.

“See, I’ve made comebacks as well. People become irritated. They begin to blame everyone. Introspection, I believe, is require. When you’re not on the team, your patience, temperament, and hard work are all put to the test. So my message to him is to “let the bat speak for itself.” Continue scoring; you will not be drop from the team. ” Raja made the remarks during a press conference on Wednesday.
“Take a look at Shan Masood. Through sheer volume of runs, he has forced his way back into the team.” he added.
Younis, the national team’s then-head coach, stated in his 2016 report that Shehzad and Umar Akmal should play domestic cricket to re-enter the national team.
Shehzad told Cricket Pakistan, “I have not seen the report myself, but a PCB official told me that these remarks have been made about me.” But I believe that these issues should be discussed face to face, and I am willing to accept the challenge. Then we’ll see who is correct and who is incorrect.
“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.”
