Sharjeel Khan, Pakistan’s out-of-form batsman, spoke with media members in an online interactive session about his health condition and other issues. Despite the common belief that his failure to perform after his last professional appearance in February 2017 is due to his fitness issues, Khan denies the impression that his fitness has an effect on his sporting performance. 

“I am in good health state. I’ve never missed a game due to a lack of fitness. He said adding, “I completed domestic cricket and trained diligently for seven months.” 

Responding to a question regarding public perception obstructing his fitness goals, Khan said he’s not under any stress and that instructor Yasir Malik’s Elite Player Fitness Program has helped him lose a significant amount of weight with ease.   

“I’m working on my own. “I ran 16 kilometers in one day,” he said. 

Sharjeel Khan’s comeback to the regular Pakistan XI for the back-to-back tours to South Africa and Zimbabwe is contingent on significant fitness gains.  Despite the fact that he is not needed to do so, Khan has been given three weeks to boost his stamina and fat mass levels ahead of the first T20I against South Africa on April 10.
