Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has admitted that he is not at all concerned about captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s dismal run of form with the bat.
Sarfraz’s poor run contined during the recently concluded tour of South Africa as he only scored two half-centuries.
Sarfraz’s two fifties came in the three-Test series, where he amassed 112 runs at an average of 18.66.
He also featured in three ODIs before being handed a four-match ban for his controversial comment to South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo in the second ODI in Durban.
In the three ODIs he played, Sarfraz scored 48 runs at an average of 24.
“He (Sarfraz) has dropped eight balls in four and a half months, so he is not out of form in his core job,” Arthur was quoted as saying by the Associated Press. “I’m not, and I want to reiterate, not worried about Sarfraz Ahmed’s (batting) form.”
