Pakistan’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed heaps praise on Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal in his recent interview. The captain feels that these two naturally talented players have the ability to win matches with their executions. He justified their selection by saying that they both made it to the team with their performances.
"Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal are very talented players and have made spots in the team for themselves with performances. They are players who can win you matches when they stay at the crease. I wish them the best and hope they perform well for Pakistan", Sarfraz said.
Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad, who were previously out of the International circuit, were recalled for the T20I series against Sri Lanka in Lahore. This selection lent them with a prime opportunity to prove their critics wrong and seal their place in Pakistan’s limited-overs team.
