Pakistani cricketer Nasir Jamshed has said he wants to become a "complete batsman" who can adjust to any conditions around the world.

Jamshed, 23, made his international debut in early 2008, in the home ODI series against Zimbabwe. He had a relatively tidy stint between 2008 and 2009, playing mostly against Asian teams in Asia, before missing out due to fitness issues. After two-and-a-half years he returned to international cricket last year, scored 602 runs at 66.88 with three hundreds and three fifties, reports The Nation.

Jamshed, who struck back-to-back centuries in the ODI series against India, is currently Pakistan's best batsman in terms of form and consistency.

Jamshed, who hasn't played outside Asia, said the tour to South Africa will be his first "real test", adding that he is prepared for it.

Jamshed, who, so far, has played against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India and Australia, said he is yet to face a "tough" bowler in international cricket. In South Africa he is expecting tougher competition.

He said he has all the strokes and patience required for Test cricket, and added that he has also worked hard on his defence. (ANI)
