According to the Express Tribune, Gul said that the Departmental T20 event is important for him because he wants to make a strong impression on the selectors after a long hiatus, adding that every player aiming for a comeback knows that the selectors will be monitoring their performance in this event closely.
Gul, who is currently the most senior fast- bowler for Pakistan with the experience of 47 Tests , 116 ODIs and 52 Twenty20s under his belt, is primarily aiming to cement his place in the Pakistan fold with the ICC Twenty20 World Cup getting closer, starting with the series against Sri Lanka.
