Former national team captain Sarfraz Ahmed has expressed happiness over the low back in the national team and said that now when I get a chance to represent the national team again, I will try not to repeat the mistakes and in a better way than 2014.
Addressing an online video press conference on Saturday, Sarfraz Ahmed said, “I have less back in the national team and there is no one happier than that.”
It is to be noted that Pakistan Cricket Board has just announced the 29-member squad for the tour of England and Sarfraz Ahmed is a part of this team.
“The tour of England has always been difficult, they are preparing here and I have the experience to play in England because I have done two or three tours with the Test team so I will try whenever I get the chance,” he said. I will be able to perform well for myself and the team.
Answering the question of not being the first priority of the team as a wicket keeper, Sarfraz Ahmed said that there are always ups and downs in his career. Were
“I have been told that I am the second choice wicketkeeper, Rizwan is still performing well and if I get a chance, I will try to do well for the team,” he said.
The former captain added that there are some mistakes that make a person out of the team, so maybe I made some mistakes that caused me to be out of the team and will try to get a chance again. If found, I will not repeat these mistakes.
In response to a question, he said that when you are the captain, you think less about yourself and try to improve the performance of the team as much as possible and the whole focus is on the result.
“I am no longer the captain, so I will try to play a good role for myself and my team because now I will be part of the team as a player instead of the captain,” he said.
Sarfraz, who won the Champions Trophy in 2017, added: “We have a good record in England in the past and a very good and talented team has been selected for the tour. Bowlers have also been selected who can bowl in England. So I hope we do well in this series.
Sarfraz Ahmed defended the decision of Mohammad Amir and Haris Sohail to withdraw from the tour, saying that PCB chief executive Wasim Khan had called all of us and given the decision to go on tour and all the players Decided voluntarily, we should respect the decision of Harris Sohail.
Welcoming Younis Khan to join the team management as the batting coach, he said that the arrival of Younis Khan will make a big difference, it will be an opportunity to learn from his experience and work ethic. Make the most of their experience.
He said that low back is not easy for any player and on low back it feels like you are playing the first match, there will be an effort that the way back is better than the way back back was in 2014.
It may be recalled that Sarfraz Ahmed, the captain of the national team in all three formats, was removed from the leadership after a clean sweep defeat in the T20 series against Sri Lanka last year.
Sarfraz, who holds the world record of winning 11 consecutive T20 series, was not only removed from the captaincy in all three formats after losing the second series, but also the doors of the national team were closed.
