Sarfraz Ahmed has recently hogged the headlines following Pakistan’s abysmal One-Day International series against New Zealand where they were comprehensively humbled by the hosts. Subsequently, he has been greeted with criticism from the media back home. Recently, Shahid Afridi had urged the media not to be too critical of the Pakistan skipper and keep patience with him.
Moin Khan followed suit and came out in support of the wicketkeeper-batsman. The former cricketer said that Sarfraz should be persisted with as the leader until the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. He also mentioned it to be a useful move both for Pakistan cricket and most importantly for Sarfraz himself in a recent interaction with the media.
Sarfraz- A quality leader
“Sarfraz should be named the team captain at least till the World Cup. This will not only help Sarfraz but will also improve the morale of the team as a whole. There is no denying Sarfraz’s quality as a leader and he will only improve with time,” Khan was quoted as saying to tribune.com.pk.
The coach of the Quetta Gladiators also vowed to turn their fortunes around and win the title in the third edition. “The team’s combination is much better this year than what it was in the previous two years. We are therefore confident of going all the way and will hopefully provide a lot of entertainment to the fans this season,” he added.
Moin also expressed his elation for the fact that the iconic Karachi Stadium is the most likely host for the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He also said that the Gladiators could’ve won the erstwhile edition of the tournament had their foreign players not backed out to play in the final. On the eve of the final, a bomb blast surfaced in Lahore owing to which several foreign players denied flying to the country and featuring in the game.
