Sarfaraz Ahmed has been unsteady on the sidelines since the emergence of Mohammad Rizwan.
Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain, has confirmed that he intends to use Sarfaraz Ahmed, the team’s goalkeeper, and ODI number five Batman, as the team’s goalkeeper. Sarfaraz is playing in his third ODI against South Africa. This is his first 50-match streak since October of last year.
Pakistan won the tournament by a score of 2-1, becoming only the second team, after Australia, to win the ODI championship twice in their own country, this time against South Africa.
Since he could only score 13 goals with a bat, Sarfaraz did not contribute much to Pakistan’s 28 victories. Despite being hidden behind the stump, he managed to snag three grappling hooks, demonstrating his forbearance.
“I have a lot of confidence in this region. I’m very pleased with the outstanding results in tough places like South Africa.
Our intermediate order is having difficulties: Azam Babar
“The only reason for this decision is that we have a lot of bench experience on Sarfaraz, and we want to take advantage of it. We have a weakness in our intermediate order, in that we lack the special ones we want to fill Type of player, which is why we invited Safaraz to fill it,” Azam told PakPassion.
“Sarfaraz Ahmed is on the team because we believe in his skills, and we will do our utmost to use him in ODIs as the fifth-best goalkeeper and cricketer for him. This is also a position where the batsman must travel a full circle, which we missed in the first two games, and the mid-range position is struggling.”
Sarfaraz Ahmed has been unsteady on the sidelines since the emergence of Mohammad Rizwan. Ahmed, on the other hand, seems to be able to retain his spot in the Pakistani 50+ format, thanks to his captain’s faith in him.
This gives us a lot of optimism, and we hope to keep this momentum going.” He stated his case. The team was able to shift Babar Azam’s motivation to stay “motivated” after Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the T20I series in Johannesburg on April 10. On April 12, the two teams will play their second match at the same venue.
