Pakistan’s World Cup campaign has been a hit and miss with the first half of their tournament being extremely disappointing before picking up pace in the final few games. Despite the subpar performances and lack of responsibility shown by the senior players, skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed expressed confidence in Pakistan’s future prospects.
Outlining the handful of positive aspects for Pakistan during the World Cup, Sarfaraz specifically mentioned top batsman Babar Azam and skillful seam bowler Mohammad Amir. He also reserved special praise for left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz who made a comeback into the national side after a gap of two years.
“It's Babar Azam's first World Cup and he has been brilliant. Shaheen Shah Afridi has performed really well, Mohammad Amir has been excellent, Wahab Riaz has made a good comeback and Shadab has bowled well,” Sarfaraz highlighted the bright moments in Pakistan’s potential first-round exit in 2019 World Cup.
