Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has been under the pump in recent times for his shambolic batting performances in ODI cricket. The wicketkeeper-batsman, nevertheless, responded to all his critics in style as he led Pakistan’s short-lived fightback in the series-opener against New Zealand.

Following Trent Boult’s magnificent hat-trick, Pakistan were reduced to 85/6 before a fine partnership between Sarfraz and all-rounder Imad Wasim induced hopes of a victory. However, Sarfraz tried one shot too many as an attempted sweep off Colin de Grandhomme’s bowling backfired and the ball ricocheted onto the stumps.

The 31-year-old made 64 off 69 balls with the help of 7 boundaries. His return to form is a positive sign for Pakistan as the home team gears up to put on a better show in the remaining games.
