Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Pakistan’s former captain, Sarfraz Ahmed, opened up about his feelings after being put down as Pakistan’s captain. PCB removed Sarfraz from Pakistan’s Test and T20I leadership following the T20I series against Sri Lanka at home. Sarfraz talked about how he felt in an interview with former Pakistani all-rounder, Shahid Afridi.
“I already knew what was coming”, Sarfraz said about his captaincy decision. “I had an idea that I won’t continue for long as Pakistan’s captain. Therefore, when the decision came out. I was not really surprised”, he added.
Under Sarfraz, Pakistan won the ICC Champions Trophy back in 2017. Pakistan also excelled to the number 1 position in the T20Is. As the captain, Sarfraz had a phenomenal record of 11 T20I series on the trot. However, Sarfraz exclusion from the side has affected Pakistan as they continue to struggle in Australia. Pakistan lost the series 2-0 to Australia under the new T20I captain, Babar Azam.
