They recently defeated West Indies in a thriller at the 3rd Test at Dominica. They won the series by 2-1. The Sarfraz Ahmed led side went on to win the 3-match One Day series 2-1 and drew level in the 4-match T20I series by 2-2.

They will play their arch rivals India at Edgbaston, Birmingham on June 3, eyeing their third win against them in ICC Champions Trophy competition. The men in green defeated India back in 2009, which was held in South Africa. They also defeated India in the Champions Trophy of 2004. Indians opened their account against Pakistan last time around when they locked horns with Pakistan in the competition held in England.

Pakistan’s jersey resembling South Africa?

Pakistani captain Sarfraz Ahmed has his task cut out to lead his side against the hot favorites to win the tournament. He was seen signing autographs and posing with the new kit on along with other prominent players of the team. Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Imad Wasim, Azhar Ali, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz and Shoaib Malik were also seen donning the parakeet greens of Pakistan. However, their kit resembles the green of South Africa back in 2009-2010.

The Pakistan Cricket Team page uploaded the collection of images by captioning,”Pakistan Team bat signing and headshots in our new kit.”
