After the departure of senior cricketers Azhar Ali and Shahid Afridi from the captaincy frame of Pakistan, it was the wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed who was installed as the new leader of all the three formats of the game.
The Karachi born cricketer brought immense pride by claiming the 2017 Champions Trophy title. However, he struggled against top teams and particularly in the red-ball cricket where the results haven’t gone his way. To add insult to the injury, Sarfaraz’s batting form was found on a downward spree.
Recently, the Quetta Gladiators player shared the challenges of leading a side like Pakistan. The dexterous batsman added that captaining the senior side of Pakistan is a different ball game as compared to leading the Under-19 team.
Highlighting the mechanism of demanding quick results and the absence of consistency, the 31-year old added that supervising any Asian side isn’t an easy job and the difficulty level is doubled when it comes to Pakistan.
