Player of the tournament : Sohaib Maqsood
“I was very confident. I finally managed to establish myself in the PSL having not done that in the previous years. The management showed faith in me and asked me to bat at number 3. I took a break from red ball cricket and worked on my skills. When your form is good, your shot selection becomes better. I don’t want to do anything different. I would want to play with same aggression if I get a chance at the international level. Credit to my captain and the management for showing faith in me. They told me to go and express myself” ; Shoaib Maqsood revealed his experience
