In the recently concluded Test series against England, there was a demand to include Sarfaraz Ahmed in the team. But only Mohammad Rizwan was given preference. However, with Shahid Afridi becoming the selector, Sarfraz Ahmed has been included in the squad in place of Mohammad Rizwan.
Pakistan cricket is going through many big changes. Recently, Rameez Raja was removed from the post of President of Pakistan Cricket Board. Najam Sethi has been appointed as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board in place of Rameez Raja. Apart from this, former Pakistan player Shahid Afridi has been appointed as the interim chief selector. Along with this, Shahid Afridi is now seen in action. Test series is being played between Pakistan and New Zealand. There has already been a big change in the test. Former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has been included in the squad. After 2018, Sarfaraz Ahmed has been included in the team.
However, there was a demand for Sarfaraz Ahmed’s inclusion in the team in the recently concluded Test series against England. But only Mohammad Rizwan was given preference. However, with Shahid Afridi becoming the selector, Sarfraz Ahmed has been included in the squad in place of Mohammad Rizwan. Apart from Sarfaraz, fast bowler Mir Hamza and opener Imam-ul-Haq have also returned to the team. Let us tell you that the New Zealand team is visiting Pakistan for the first time after 2003. Sarfaraz Ahmed comes in the successful captains of Pakistan. Under his captaincy, Pakistan defeated India in the Champions Trophy in 2017.
However, Mohammad Rizwan is considered the best player of Pakistan. But his performance in the Test match has not been good. Mohammad Rizwan’s bat was quite silent in the recent three-match Test series against England. At the same time, Sarfaraz Ahmed is getting a chance to play Test after 4 years. Sarfaraz Ahmed is 35 years old. He averages 36 in 49 Test matches. It also includes 3 centuries and 18 half-centuries. He is also a great wicketkeeper. Apart from this, he also has experience.
