Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed has stated that he is not threatened by talented wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan, who is part of the 23 probables called for Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) fitness test for the World Cup.
Rizwan replaced Sarfaraz in the ODI series against Australia and enjoyed a great run with the bat as he scored a total of 231 runs in five matches, which included two centuries, at an average of 57.75. Rizwan has now scored two ODI hundreds in 32 ODIs, while Sarfraz has the same number of centuries after playing 101 ODIs.
“Why would I have opted to rest [for the Australian series] if I was threatened by Rizwan, neither I have ever thought like that. Rizwan has played alongside me as a batsman, and there was a time once when I was the team’s vice-captain and I was out and he was playing,” said Sarfaraz.
