DOT Desk: There is a life beyond cricket and Shan Masood got a whole new perspective when he lost his beloved sister. As he geared up to make his T20I debut against England, the lanky left-hander spoke about how he feels blessed to be wearing the Pakistan green and doesn’t want to carry the baggage of pressure, reports thedailystar. “I have learnt a lot with time and have grown as a person and player. They are more important things in life than cricket so I just feel blessed to be doing what I do,” Shan said at a press conference in Karachi on Saturday when asked if he was feeling any pressure on his comeback. He also briefly touched upon the death of his sister this year who was a special person and very close to him.”My sister’s passing away made me look at things differently.
I just feel now it is great to be getting a chance to play for your country or your favourite sport and earning from it but there is more to life than success and failure in cricket,” he said.
The tall left-hander has been recalled to the Pakistan T20 side and included in the World Cup squad after being on the sidelines since early 2021.
