Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif has advocated for the return of Haris Sohail, saying he has the ability to score runs in foreign conditions.
Even though he is not on the radar of the national selectors, the 33-year-old is still actively playing tournaments in the domestic circuit in the hope to earn a national recall.
Most recently, he represented the Mirpur Royals in the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) and made 124 runs in six matches, which included a top score of 55, at an average of 24.80, and a strike rate of 137.77.
Prior to that, he took part in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he accumulated 175 runs in four games at an average of 35 for Balochistan, which included a top score of 79.
Earlier also Latif criticized the selectors for phasing out the left-handed batter from the Pakistan squad for the West Indies tour; Sohail last played for Pakistan in January 2021 during a Test against New Zealand. In ODIs, his last appearance came in October 2020 against Zimbabwe.
