MULTAN – Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik said that his strategy in Wednesday night’s defeat in Karachi Kings’ thriller against Multan Sultans was to take the run chase as deep as possible.
Reacting to the three-run defeat against the Sultans, Malik said that when he arrived at the crease he wanted to make the most of the situation, which is what he has aspired to do throughout his career.
“We were in a good position when I came into bat, and I thought of ways I can make it even better and be there as long as well,” Malik told The Dependent.
“That’s when I told Imad [Wasim] during the strategic timeout that I am aiming to extend the match as deep as possible, ideally as deep as my cricket career,” he added.
Further talking to The Dependent in the exclusive interview, Malik said that he is sharing his experience with Karachi Kings’ players like the captain Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, and Sharjeel Khan.
“Longevity is the most important thing whether within a match or a career, that’s what I keep telling them,” he said.
“I’ve told them: look, some of you have done spot-fixing, some of you have breached disciplinary and ethical norms, but as long as you’re still out there, there’s always a chance,” the all-rounder added.
“As long as you’re there, someone is always bound to lose all perspective and give you another chance.”
