Former Pakistan skipper and incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan has advised Sarfaraz Ahmed to focus on elevating his performances in domestic cricket. Sarfaraz was stripped of the captaincy charge following Pakistan’s T20I series whitewash at the hands of Sri Lanka in Lahore.
He was then removed the team’s squads announced for the Australia tour, reflecting the stern stance taken by the selectors. Imran, currently on a short break from political duties, claimed Sarfaraz had the potential to get back into the national side but he will have to first showcase his talent in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
"I don't think the performance and form of a player should be judged by T20 cricket but through Test and one-day cricket. He [Sarfaraz] can come back to the national team, but right now he should focus on domestic cricket,” he told reporters.
