Would've been a better player if Coach Arthur had trained me 10 years ago: Sohail Khan

During an interview, the pacer said that the head coach has been "tough" with him over the past three years; however, the strict training resulted in an improvement in his performance.

"It is Mickey who has polished me the most," he told DawnNews. "He has taught me how I should work for my comeback.”

He disagreed with Arthur's earlier statement that he was past his prime, saying that his only issue was a lack of fitness which he has overcome.

"My Yoyo test result is 19.1. This is why I made a comeback against the World XI," he said. He further said that there were players of his age in the current squad; therefore, that was not a problem.

In an interview on Thursday, the head coach had said that Sohail was a decade too old.

"If he [Sohail] had performed the way he is performing now 10 years ago, he would have been a great international player now," he told DawnNews, adding that since the squad now has young players in good form, trying to bring Sohail back would be a "waste of time".

Sohail claimed that he has been training to be able to play in all three formats of cricket, since a player cannot stick to one format in contemporary cricket.

"I want to prove myself like Misbahul Haq, Younis Khan, [Mohammad] Hafeez and Shoaib Malik and play longer,” he insisted.
