MULTAN: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram on Tuesday said that Sarfraz Ahmed should continue captaining the national side in all three formats of the game.
While speaking to media in Multan, when one of the reporters asked Akram what his position was on Shahid Afridi’s comments where he said that Sarfraz should leave Test captaincy and focus only on one-day internationals and T20s, Akram said, “I have been hearing about this for the last month or two. If not Sarfraz then who? Somebody give me a name of who would replace Sarfraz.”
“There are no Imran Khan or Javed Miandad waiting in line to replace him,” Akram added.
“Sarfraz is playing good cricket. The upcoming tour to South Africa will be very challenging.”
Earlier, Afridi had said that Sarfraz should focus on ODI and T20 cricket and leave Test captaincy.
“I favoured his captaincy in all there formats earlier. But now we have the World Cup coming up. This is my wish – he can make his own decision… that he should put Test cricket aside for some time and focus on ODIs and T20s. I am saying so from my experience. He will then be able to deliver more,” Afridi had said.
