We have to endure, we have to see bad days, we don’t get anything without endurance, so we have to show perseverance, we go to the results overnight because of which we can’t produce players.
The 30-year-old batsman said that cricket is a game that is played for 30 days and the remaining 330 days are spent thinking about the 30 days played, so it is necessary to form a team by forming a group for four years.
Shaun Masood said that Jasin Rai and Rohit Sharma have also become top players by playing cricket continuously.
England cricket changed after 2015 when they decided what to do now, formed a core group of players, and Then keep walking with it, the result of which is in front of everyone today.

Proved to be very useful, there should be departmental cricket, PCB is also trying, hopefully, a window will come out.
