Ahmed Shehzad pens emotional note after PSL A heartfelt goodbye to Pakistan Super League

Pakistan batter Ahmed Shehzad has penned an emotional note after not being picked by any of the six franchises in the PSL 2024 player draft, saying goodbye to the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Shehzad, in his social media post, wrote that he knows why no side picked him for the Pakistan Super League, and he will reveal the reason soon.

Ahmed Shehzad, who last played for Pakistan in a T20I in 2019, has been showcasing impressive performances in Karachi’s National T20 Cup. He kicked off his campaign with a solid 60 off 52 balls against Larkana, followed by a striking 81 off 44 balls against Quetta. His consistency continued with an unbeaten 72 off 52 balls against KR Blues on November 28.

“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 wrote in a pictorial message on his X profile.

Shehzad lamented that despite his good performance on the domestic circuit over the past few years, and his recent success in the National T20 Cup, he was deliberately 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 so it doesn’t really matter,” he added.

The Pakistan batter also hinted that franchises favoured other players who had inferior performance numbers to him. Shehzad ended his note by saying that he would soon reveal the reasons for his exclusion from the PSL to his fans and the 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 so
