Ajmal Shahzad says 'trying hard' to play for England again

Islamabad, Dec 7 : England cricketer Ajmal Shahzad has said that his aim is to get back into international cricket and wants to be at the top of his game again, playing for his team as long as he possibly can.


In an interview with PakPassion.net, Shahzad spoke about his initial interest in cricket, the experience of becoming the first British Asian to play for Yorkshire, his move to Nottinghamshire and his plans for the future.

28-year-old fast bowler Ajmal Shahzad represented England on 15 occasions between February 2010 and March 2011, the report said.

Having spent the majority of his career at Yorkshire, Shahzad raised eyebrows by moving to Roses rivals Lancashire before signing a three-year deal with Nottinghamshire, the report added.

In last season's domestic YB40 competition, he finished as the second highest wicket taker and played a key role in Nottinghamshire lifting the title, taking 3-33 from his six overs in the final, the report further said.

His international career is currently on hold following the introduction of a plethora of English fast bowlers but his recent form, particularly in the limited overs format, suggests he can bowl his way back into the international reckoning, the report mentioned.
