Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has revealed that he chose to wear the shalwar kameez when meeting the Queen of England since it is his country’s traditional garment.

All the other captains donned suits when meeting the Queen, but Sarfraz admitted that he was proud to be representing his country by wearing its national outfit.

He added that he was also told by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to wear the shalwar kameez.

“The shalwar kameez is our national dress and I got instructions from the board to do all these things so I tried to promote our national dress. I felt very proud that the other captains were wearing suits but I was wearing [Pakistan’s] national dress,” he was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.

Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on Friday.
