Srinagar: Former Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has made a major statement by terming former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir as better pacer than current star pacer Shaheen Afridi.
In a podcast with Nadir Ali, Sarfaraz was asked to rank Mohammad Asif, Amir and Shaheen in order of their ability as a pacer.
“I will put Asif at number one position,” Sarfaraz said.
“If you talk about skills, Amir is not playing international cricket right now. I think he should play international cricket but it is his decision. If Amir was playing right now, I would put Amir at two and Shaheen at number three,” he added.
Sarfaraz on the occasion also made it clear that he has no plans to leave the Quetta Gladiators.
“I am associated with Quetta for the last eight years but my relationship with them is too old. I think since 2003 or 2004, I am with them. I guess I was just 17 when I first played for Nadeem Bhai’s team Omar Associates,” he said.
“I played for the Pakistan club and Nadeem Bhai saw and supported me during my growth as a cricketer. He is just like a father figure to me. I will not leave Quetta until they release me,” he said.
