Srinagar: Former Pakistan cricketer turned cricket expert has made sensational claim regarding Pakistan star wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan about former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Ever since the rise of the Mohammad Rizwan who is currently number one T20 batter in the World, Sarfaraz Ahmed has gone into the background. With the Rizwan doing well, their is no place for Sarfaraz in the Pakistan side. For the T20 World Cup 2022, Pakistan hcs included youngster Mohammad Haaris as backup instead of Sarfaraz.
Now on Pakistan’s television channel Geo Super, former Pakistan cricketer Sikander Bakht made a massive claim over Sarfaraz’s international future.
Bakht revealed that Sarfaraz is not likely to represent Pakistan anymore, claiming that Rizwan has stated that he “won’t let him return.”
“Sarfaraz will not play now. Our cricket community is quite small, so we get to know a lot of things. A cricketer who does programmes with us told us that Rizwan said, “mein Sarfaraz ko kabhi aane nahi dunga (I won’t let Sarfaraz return to Pakistan team). That’s because when Sarfaraz was there, he didn’t let Rizwan play. So now it’s the opposite. This is what I have heard. I might be wrong,” Bakht said.
Rizwan had made his debut for Pakistan in April 2015 during an ODI against Bangladesh, and cemented his place in the side after the 2019 World Cup.
