Since the Pakistan team has got the new chief selector and head coach – Misbah-ul-Haq, there have been many big changes within the team with veterans getting snubbed while the fit and young cricketers are being preferred in the playing XI. The biggest decision taken by the team management was the exclusion of ex-captain Sarfaraz Ahmed from the team. But this experiment seems not to be so successful as there are no major changes in the output of the Green Army. And now, the Pakistan team is looking to bring back Sarfaraz in the fold.
The former skipper Sarfaraz was invalidated for his role of leading the national side in Test and T20I cricket in October last year over his poor fitness and declining performance of the team. Since then, he hasn’t featured with the national team.
Sarfaraz Ahmed soon to join Pakistan team:
Misbah, while talking to Geo News, expressed that the 32-year-old is looking fit as well as performing well in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020). So, he might make it to the national side.
Furthermore, the chief selector said that there will be additional matches following the conclusion of the PSL 2020, in order to determine who gets picked in the T20 World Cup 2020 squad.
“Sarfaraz Ahmed has been playing very well in the PSL 2020 and he is also fit. While he is in consideration for the World Cup, there will be matches after tPShe PSL to decide which player will get the call,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz currently leads the PSL franchise Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 2020.
So far, his team has won three out of six matches in the league. They are also defending champions of the PSL while the finals of the league will be played on 22 March.
