Sarfraz Ahmed has admitted that he is “satisfied” with his performance as Pakistan’s captain over the past three years.
Sarfraz made the comments when appearing in front of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Cricket Committee on Friday.
In addition to winning the Champions Trophy in 2017 and leading Pakistan to the top of the Twenty20 team rankings, where they currently sit, Sarfraz noted that the men in green did an excellent job in beating some of the top teams at the World Cup, including England and New Zealand, who were the two finalists.
“I am satisfied with my performance as the team’s captain. The team performed really well in the last [few] matches [at the] World Cup against top teams,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “During my tenure, players like Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, and Fakhar Zaman came under the limelight. I had tried my best to provide equal opportunities to the players.”
The committee will now decide whether to retain Sarfraz as captain in all three formats, have him lead in fewer formats or strip him of the captaincy completely.
