After a series of disappointing outings in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is finding himself in a circle of criticism. As if his poor captaincy decisions and batting form wasn’t enough, the fitness of the wicket-keeper batsman has attracted backlash as former cricketers urged him to get in shape.
Latest man to criticize the lackadaisical displays of the Karachi born is the former Pakistan quick Aaqib Javed who went on to term Sarfaraz a ‘weak leader’. Reflecting on Sarfaraz’s journey as the captain of the side, the Sheikhupura born said that the 32-year old is failing to produce results which won’t allow him to be a strong figure in front of the management.
In addition to that, the 46-year old reviewed Pakistan chances in the running mega-event as he added that India, New Zealand, England and Australia are in great position to get into semis but Pakistan must not lose hope.
“Sarfaraz isn’t a great leader. After the Champions Trophy 2017 event, he had failed miserably. With such a record, he can’t demand anything in front of chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq and coach Mickey Arthur. Sarfaraz is a weak skipper who cannot show his authority on and off the field,” opined by head coach of Lahore Qalandars.
