LAHORE – Left-handed opening batsman Sharjeel Khan is all set to return to flight cricket by the end of the year after unconditionally expressing how sorry he was for what has happened.
Sharjeel Khan’s roadmap for return was approved by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday after the former Islamabad United star gave a written statement.
The statement, a copy of which is exclusively available with The Dependent, clearly shows that Sharjeel has said sorry.
“I am sorry for what I was unfairly dragged through. This irresponsible conduct that brought embarrassment to everyone. This should never have happened,” the statement reads.
“I request for forgiveness for those responsible for this and assure I will show more responsibility in dealing strongly with those responsible for what happened to me,” the statement adds.
“I remind all cricketers to carefully read this statement, because it shows that if you’re good and the team needs you, you can pretty much get away with anything,” it continues.
The PCB has accepted Sharjeel’s unconditional apology and has forgiven him for his gross misconduct, initiating the process to streamline him into the national side as soon as possible.
