Pakistan opener Shan Masood was dropped from the Pakistan squad after a disappointing tour to New Zealand where he could score only 10 runs in four innings. In order to sort out his technical flaws, Masood flew to South Africa where he is furnishing his skills under the former Indian coach Gary Kirsten.

After spending a couple of weeks in Cape Town, the opener will head back to Karachi next week.

Earlier, chief selector Mohammad Wasim revealed that Masood has some technical issues in his batting which has led to his ouster from the team. Masood was also not invited to the National High Performance Center in Lahore to get his issues sorted under some high-class coaches.

Masood then turned to Gary Kirsten to get him out of his miseries. After taking permission from the PCB, Masood flew to South Africa.

The 31-year-old will be looking at the PSL to get back into the limelight. He, however, might have to wait till November, when Pakistan tour Bangladesh for a two-match Test series, to make a comeback for Pakistan.

The Pakistan Super League is all set to resume from June 1. Shan Masood is part of the Multan Sultan team in the PSL 6. He, however, didn’t get much opportunities in the earlier matches. He represented Multan in just one game in PSL 6 and was dismissed for one. Multan Sultan have lost four out of their five games and are struggling in the bottom half of the points table. It will be interesting to see if Masood gets an opportunity to play in the remaining matches or not.
