Following an average outing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistan’s captain Sarfaraz Ahmed faced a lot of criticism. A major chunk even moved to demand the removal of the wicket-keeper batsman from the national team. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) showed trust in Sarfaraz’s abilities and retained him as the skipper of the unit.
Recently, the agile player was backed by the newly appointed head coach Misbah-ul-Haq who advised Sarfaraz to make his bat talk.
“Sarfaraz has done a lot of hard work, but he needs to perform well to be able to become a successful captain. My support lies with him and I really want him to do well against Sri Lanka. Ups and downs are the part of everyone’s career, but what is important is to come back hard,” the Mianwali born said while expressing his support for Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Reflecting on the situation, the 45-year old said that Sarfaraz will have to deliver strong individual performances to become a successful leader. Moreover, he urged the Karachi born to believe in himself and come back hard in the series against the Islanders.
