Following an unimpressive outing in the recently concluded edition of the World Cup, eyebrows were raised towards Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed. A major chunk advocated the removal of the dexterous cricketer while others want him to resume his duties as Pakistan’s leader.
Recently, former Pakistan wicket-keeper and captain Rashid Latif has become a part of this debate. The cricketer turned analyst is of the view that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should not look to dismiss the 32-year old player. Rather, Sarfaraz’s position in team needs to be strengthened as Pakistan doesn’t have the luxury of many polished captaincy materials.
Rashid opined that with the exits of Mickey Arthur and Inzamam-ul-Haq, it is essential to give strength to Sarfaraz so that he can take the team forward with a positive attitude. However, the governing body of Pakistan cricket is yet to break silence on this matter as captaincy decision is likely to be confirmed after the appointment of new head coach.
