Shadab Khan out after making 20(17) for Colombo Strikers against B-Love Kandy in the LPL season 2024.
 
Salman Ali Agha made an impact with the ball for B-Love Kandy against Colombo Strikers with a decent spell of 1/10 in 2 overs
 
I'm watching the ongoing match and good God is it a low-quality tournament! No crowds, no jerseys sponsors, nothing!

Shambolic that Pakistan's supposed premier all-rounder (Shadab in case anyone's wondering) is participating in this mess.

LPL has always been like that. It is not an appealing league.
 
Hasnain failing with ball and Haris and Shadab failing with bat.

These guys are not even LPL class. :inti

How do they make money?
 
three failures for Mighty Haris who everybody wanted in Pak team... Agha witha glorious duck who again people wanted in Pak team...nobody admits the fact we DONT have any talent what so ever.
 
Another 4 wicket haul for Shadab Khan in LPL 2024 against Galle Titans this time while playing for Colombo Strikers. His figures so far 4/12 in 3 overs.
 
Mohammad Haris, playing for Kandy Falcons, has the perfect opportunity to showcase his skills, while Shadab Khan represents Colombo Strikers - it's time for Haris to prove his mettle!

Shadab Khan showed intent later, scoring 23 off 12 with a decent strike rate of 191.66, but this was against a weak bowling lineup.
 
Shadab is getting his bowling form back, today he got the big fish Andre Fletcher and maintained his bowling economy 7.00 with figures of 1/21 in 3 overs against Kandy Falcons. Colombo Strikers should have given him a complete 4 overs.

Mohammad Haris' valiant knock goes in vain for Kandy Falcons

The right-handed batter scored 56 off 32, but was outdone as Matheesha Pathirana's impressive death overs bowling (4/26) stole the show, whilst Shadab Khan's (1/21) economical spell also contributed to Colombo Strikers' win over Kandy Falcons by 2 runs.
 
Mohammad Haris's stay at the crease was a short one today in a game against Galle Marvels. Gone for 0 off 3 balls.
 
Shadab Khan is in action for Colombo Strikers against Dambulla Sixers. Today is a real test for his bowling, as Russel Arnold's toss report indicated that it's another belter for batters, suggesting a score of 190+ might be par again, which doesn't bode well for spinners.
 
No game for Salman Ali Agha and Hasnain playing for the Kandy Falcons.

Mohammad Haris is playing though. Let's see how he performs today.
 
Any reason top Pak players like Babar, Rizwan, Shaheen, Rauf etc. not playing. Like they opted out and taking a break.

They have their international careers on line therfore in a risk averse strategy not opting for LPL that if they failed there , it will only create ruckus, atm all senior players are focusing on fitness and training to consolidate their position in team

Smart move.
Some time away and focus on fitness should be helpful. They are good players and Pak heavily depends on them.

In other words their hiding and ducking

Not hiding and ducking , they know international cricket is their bread and butter the only way to earn living, therefore training hard to maintain fitness unlike some unfit players who indulge in suspicious activities
 
Shadab Khan will be in action in the first game of today in LPL 2024 between Colombo Strickers and Jaffna Kings.

Another 4-fer coming???
