The exclusion of the wicketkeeper-batsman, Mohammad Haris, from Pakistan’s squad for the New Zealand T20I series created a buzz last month, leaving fans frustrated.

Renowned for his explosive batting prowess, the 22-year-old quickly carved a niche as one of the most promising T20 batters, leaving an indelible mark in leagues worldwide. However, chief selector Wahab Riaz said that he was not dropped but rested for the New Zealand series.

Mohammad Haris has now claimed that he was left in the dark regarding the reasoning behind this decision. Despite the uncertainty surrounding his omission, Haris remains resilient and optimistic, addressing the situation during a recent media event.

In response to the unexpected exclusion, Haris candidly stated, “Even I don’t know when and where I performed badly in T20Is. There are ups and downs.”

“Sometimes, players in the backup perform better than you, so they deserve a chance. It is healthy competition, and I hope to perform well in PSL and grab the opportunity.”

Haris said that he views the situation as part of the game, recognizing the healthy competition within the team. He expressed determination to use this period to analyze his performance, identify areas of improvement, and enhance his skillset.

“I am not sad about being dropped as this is part of the game. These things make you stronger. I have gotten time to analyze my mistakes and improve my skillset,” added Haris.

Mohammad Haris is part of Peshawar Zalmi and will be focused to perform in upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) to make a comeback.
