Paceman Gul focused on Pakistan return


Fast bowler Umar Gul says he is focused on making a 'strong' comeback into the Pakistan team now that he has returned to domestic cricket from a knee injury.

Gul suffered a serious injury to his knee in March 2013, which kept him out of the game for nine months, and was not the same bowler once he made a comeback.

Once the kingpin of the Pakistan bowling attack, Gul's form dropped to the point where he was dropped from doing national duty for the Asian side.

The right-arm paceman is now hoping strong performances in the domestic competitions will help him stake a claim for a place in the Pakistan side again.

The 31 year-old Gul told "I suppose when I got my knee injury in 2013 is when my form dropped but that is all behind me now.

"I am feeling much better and have already taken 23 wickets in 5 matches in the current edition of the Quaid-e-Azam trophy.

"My sole aim is to make a strong comeback for Pakistan with good rhythm and some good domestic performances under my belt and I feel that I am making good progress towards that goal."
