Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed is having a dream run as the captain of the side. Pakistan won seven consecutive series under his captaincy with the historic series against the Windies being the latest. The team defeated West Indians in both of the first two T20Is to seal the series.

Skipper Sarfraz seemed to be more than happy with the side’s performance. The Pakistan team scored over 200 runs in both the games and won them by some huge margins. Furthermore, Sarfraz soaked his team in praise in the post-match presentation after the 2nd T20I. Pakistan will play the final T20I against Windies today.

Sarfraz Ahmed is learning to deal with his anger

Sarfraz is often known for venting out his anger on the cricket field. He is not someone who remains calm and likes to take the opposition on. This attitude of his also brought him quite some disrepute. But Sarfraz seems to be determined to change this and have a control on his anger. He said that he was learning to manage his anger better and stay calm.

“My boys are brilliant and they have a great understanding of the game and as a result, they have performed well. I’m trying to learn things such as anger management etc. Trying to stay calm and instill confidence in the youngsters,” said Sarfraz.

The overjoyed skipper also praised the youngsters in the team for their performances. Sarfraz really seemed to have enjoyed the confidence with which the youngsters were playing. Sarfraz was impressed with all-rounder Hussain Talat for his performance in the second T20I. He cited the examples of a few youngsters rising up to the occasion and performing well. Further, Sarfraz added that his role was to stay calm and instill confidence in the youngsters.

“I love it when youngsters come to the team and play with so much confidence such as Talat today. Shadab a few months ago, and even Babar. So I think every youngster that comes in has the same confidence of playing,” he added.
