Sharjeel Khan (Urdu: شرجیل خان ‎ (born 14 August 1989) in Hyderabad, Sindh)[1] is a cricketer from Pakistan. He is an attacking opening batsman. He was part of the bronze medal winning team at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China. He made his T20I debut for Pakistan on 8 December 2013 against Afghanistan and made his One Day International debut for Pakistan on 18 December 2013 against Sri Lanka. In his debut ODI match he played very good knock of 61 runs from 61 balls. He was selected in the Pakistan squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 where he was the highest run scorer for his team.


Sharjeel Khan made his first-class debut in 2009. He scored 1 run in the first innings.[2] During that season, he ended up with around 8 runs. In his T20 games he made two T20 centuries.

He was called up for the first time for Pakistan during Sri Lanka's tour of the UAE.[3] While in his 2nd international in a T20I against Sri Lanka at Dubai, Sharjeel made a promising 34 and suggested he could fix Pakistan's top order conundrum. This was cemented even more in only his 3rd game, when he blasted a swashbuckling 50 off 25 balls against Sri Lanka. Sharjeel became a regular in the Pakistan limited overs teams ever since his successful PSL in February 2016 where he made 299 runs (3rd highest) at 29.95. He also hit the most sixes in the inaugural PSL (19) and scored the first century for the PSL.

In September 2016, Sharjeel earned a maiden test call up against New Zealand after impressing in the limited overs against England and West Indies.[4]

2016 Pakistan Super League[edit]

Khan was part of Islamabad United's squad. He became the first player of Pakistan Super League who scored a century against possibly the best bowling line-up of the inaugural PSL Peshawar Zalmi khpal Team.He scored 117 from 62 in Qualifier 3 and took his team in the final where they faced Quetta Gladiators, winning the final by 6 wickets.He was arguably the team's best player in the tournament and performed well throughout, scoring (300) Runs at an excellent strike-rate of 149.25.He finished the tournament as the third leading run scorer, only behind Lahore Qalandars's Umar Akmal and Karachi Kings's Ravi Bopara.

Ireland (2016)[edit]

He scored his maiden century against Ireland at Malahide on 18 August 2016. His fifty came from 34 deliveries and century from 61 deliveries with the strike rate of 176.74. This century stands as the third highest ODI century by a Pakistani in ODIs after Saeed Anwar (194) and Imran Nazir (160). His 150 also stands as the third fastest of all time after AB de Villiers and Shane Watson.

2017 Pakistan Super League fixing allegations[edit]

In February 2017 he was provisionally suspended under the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing investigation into an organisation's alleged attempts to corrupt the 2017 Pakistan Super League.[5] On 18 February, Khan, along with teammate Khalid Latif, was formally charged by the PCB for violating the anti-corruption code.[6] On March 20, he was summoned by PCB anti-corruption tribunal for hearing and was given till May 5 to submit a formal reply.
