Pakistan batter Shan Masood revealed that he gained a completely new perspective on life outside cricket after the death of his beloved sister. 

Shan, who is yet to make his debut in the T20I format was called up into the T20 side for the upcoming World Cup because of his outstanding performance in all three formats this year. 

“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.

When he was 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 it 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 favorite sport and earning from it but there is more to life than success and failure in cricket,” he said.

The 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.
