Due to Sarfaraz Ahmed’s excellent domestic performances, Rizwan requested that the management add Sarfaraz Ahmed’s services to the roster before him for the series.
Mohammad Rizwan, the wicketkeeper-batsman for Pakistan, disclosed that he had personally requested to be removed from the recently finished Test series against New Zealand. Rizwan continued by saying that he requested that previous captain Sarfaraz Ahmed be named to the squad before him.
Prior to the match against the Kiwis at home, Rizwan had a miserable performance against England, scoring just 141 runs over the course of the three-match series at an average of 23.50. The keeper-batter admitted to Cricket Pakistan that his lacklustre batting performances meant he did not “deserve” a spot in the team. He also recommended that Sarfaraz Ahmed be brought in to serve as his replacement.
“You may ask Saqlain Mushtaq, the head coach, what I said to him following the conclusion of the England Test series. Sarfaraz (Ahmed) performing was exactly what I wanted to watch, thus I was thrilled to witness it. I personally believed that I didn’t deserve to play in the upcoming series because I wasn’t able to perform. Every player goes through this phase, according to certain players, and you can’t be benched just on a few slip-ups,” stated Rizwan.
Sarfaraz has been entertaining audiences at home and finally got his chance: Rizwan Mohammad
It is important to note that Sarfaraz produced some outstanding innings in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, scoring 52 runs and a century (102 runs) in his final two matches for Sindh before the New Zealand series. Rizwan added that the former Pakistan captain deserved a spot in the team due to his local performances.
Sarfaraz has been entertaining audiences at home and now gets an opportunity to prove himself. I asked for Sarfaraz to be included, therefore I was pleased to see him play. Whoever represents Pakistan the best deserves to play,” he continued.
The former captain of Pakistan enjoyed a standout performance against the BlackCaps, scoring the most runs with 335 in the two Tests at an astounding average of 83.75.
