Sarfaraz Ahmed is very much in our plans, he will tour England this your says Misbah ul Haq.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) plan to take Sarfaraz Ahmed to tour England this year as they are scheduled to play in England, three Test and same number of T20Is.
After the mega event of World Cup, Sarfaraz Ahmed was sacked from captaincy, as well as from the team, they had planned to go with Mohammad Rizwan, but plan didn’t work as expected as Mohammad Rizwan couldn’t manage to get runs for his team.
Not only runs matter but his slowness also another matters, he couldn’t score quick runs, although Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has already decided to go with Mohammad Rizwan for the rest of his career, but they are picking Sarfaraz Ahmed just for the sake of another wicketkeeper as they are missing wicketkeepers in Pakistan who can bat.
Will Sarfaraz Ahmed make his place in the team?
Yes, definitely he has a chance here, just look at the numbers Rizwan Ahmed has got, Rizwan Ahmed has been the regular part of Pakistan team but he hasn’t showed any talent yet. His run in Australia were so crucial but he couldn’t manage to get as well. Now Sarfaraz Ahmed has a bright chance to take his place.
Both wicketkeepers will get equal chances, someone will have to show his responsibility, if one can get a lot of scorers, he will definitely get a huge chance there.
Misbah ul Haq has been always uncomfortable to every player unless he gets most of his chances, so he hardly believes, he check new players almost on every tour, so trusting Mohammad Rizwan wasn’t easy job for him that’s why he is calling Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Although there is doubt who is gonna play most number of matches for Pakistan in England tour, but getting two wicketkeepers on the tour is on the cards for Pakistan now as confirmed by Misbah ul Haq himself.
“We have made a plan to get two wicketkeepers for England tour, so we are definitely going to pick Sarfaraz Ahmed,” confirmed Misbah ul Haq.
“We are going to get 25 players for England tour so we will not have to face difficulty there for any player due to nowadays’ situation,” Misbah ul Haq said.
25 men’s squad is definitely on the cards as Misbah ul Haq will select most number of players for this particular tour.
Sarfaraz Ahmed is among them. He has good chance at playing in T20Is on this tour because Mohammad Rizwan has been below average in T20Is.
