Lahore Qalandar's all-rounder Kamran Ghulam hopes to be part of the Pakistan national T20 team if he keeps on playing well in the ongoing seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

"I have performed well in the domestic cricket, and if I keep playing well in PSL, then I can join the Pakistan T20 team. Pakistan national team is for those who perform well. If I play well, then I too will be waiting for a chance in the national team," Kamran told Geo News.

All-rounder Kamran has been exceptional for the Qalandars, and he has delivered with the bat as he has scored 196 runs in seven matches.

Kamran, 26, believes that T20 cricket is not just about aggression, but it also has to be played according to the situation.

"World-class players like Babar Azam, Joe Root, Virat Kohli, and Kane Williamson play according to the situation in T20 format because T20 is not limited to aggressive players as there are times when one has to play according to the situation," he said.

Kamran Ghulam thinks that the presence of senior players like Mohammad Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman, and Shaheen Shah Afridi is beneficial for the team.

"It is very easy to bat with Fakhar Zaman, and he likes to play aggressively. There is a lot to learn from Mohammad Hafeez.

Kamran Ghulam appreciates Lahore captain Shaheen Shah Afridi and says that Shaheen Shah Afridi is an excellent captain, and a fighter captain like him is needed, who supports and backs up his players.

Kamran also talked about the supporters of Lahore Qalandars, saying that he is hoping that the fans keep on supporting their team.

Talking about being awarded as the Best Player in Domestic Cricket, Kamran said that Lahore Qalandars trusted him after he achieved the feat and vowed to fulfil the trust of Lahore Qalandars and perform as much as I can.
