Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar believes there is a possibility that Sarfaraz Ahmed may never play international cricket again because the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) don’t want him in the national team.

Akhtar’s comments come after Sarfaraz Ahmed was sacked as the country’s Test and T20 captain, and dropped for the upcoming tour of Australia, which will consist of three Twenty20 Internationals from November 3 to 8, and two Tests from November 21 to December 3.

“[The] PCB doesn’t want Sarfaraz in the team anymore, so we don’t know his future,” he said in a YouTube video as quoted by cricketpakistan.com.pk. “Rizwan is likely to be preferred in Tests and ODIs, whereas Kamran Akmal can make a comeback in T20Is.”

Akhtar also feels that Sarfaraz has no one to blame but himself for being removed as captain.

“When Sarfaraz came back in the team in 2014, he focused on his batting and played aggressive cricket to make his place in the team,” he said. “However, when Sarfaraz became captain, he got lost somewhere. He became a scared captain as he was unable to make any decisions or selections as Mickey Arthur kept calling the shots.

“All former cricketers kept advising him to take responsibility as we knew that if he didn’t, his place would come under the scanner.”
