Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has been under the pump off late as he has been struggling to find form both as a skipper and as a middle-order batsman. However, he has been retained as the captain of the side for the upcoming cricket World Cup in England.
Head coach Mickey Arthur has expressed full confidence in the abilities of Sarfraz as a batsman as he said that the 31-year-old could still win games for Pakistan when he gets going.
“Sarfaraz will be the first one to admit that his batting form has come and gone. He is very, very determined to get that right because he plays match winning innings. When Sarfaraz plays well, he wins games for us. I want to reiterate I am not worried about his form,” he said.
After coming home from the South Africa tour due to a 4-match suspension, Sarfraz was under immense pressure, but he is looking forward to taking part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) with a fresh mind and do well before the Australia series in UAE.
