Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed may be struggling in the batting department failing to register big scores but there is no doubt regarding his ace keeping skills this cricketing season. Despite the added responsibility of captaincy, this has not taken a toll on Sarfraz’s dexterity behind the stumps as he is taking his catches neatly.
During the course of the first innings of the final Test match against South Africa, Sarfraz completed 5 catches, making this the 4th occasion he has done this in Test cricket.
This is the joint-most number of times done by an Asian wicketkeeper, equaling the record of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni.
This testifies that Sarfraz is setting the bar high with his keeping standards. Earlier, head coach Mickey Arthur had also shed light on Sarfraz’s quality as a wicketkeeper.
