Moin Khan backs Sarfaraz Ahmed leading Pakistan in all Formats
The Former Pakistani wicket-keeper and Batsmen backs Sarfaraz Ahmed to continue leading Pakistan in all three formats.
Moin khan insisted that this was not the right time to remove Sarfaraz from the role of captaincy. He expresses his thoughts while talking to media in Karachi.
This is not the right time to get Sarfaraz out of the captaincy, Moin Khan said. Before taking that step, it’s important to find a suitable alternative.
Rumors of Sarfaraz’s withdrawal from the captaincy have been circulating since Pakistan’s team’s departure from the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup in England and Wales.
Pakistan secured 11 points in nine games, as many as New Zealand scored, but were expelled, from the mega event, with a lower net execution rate.
The Green Shirts won only one win, against the hosts England, from the first five games with three losses, including a loss to their arch-rival India, and a result-less result. They arranged a comeback by winning the next four games but still couldn’t qualify.
The 47-year-old was also not in favor of chief coach Mickey Arthur’s suggestion of naming Shadab Khan as the captain of ODI Format.
I don’t agree with Arthur’s suggestion. I should have appointed an MP for Sarfaraz in the past, which he did not do, Moin said.
Moin also stated that he was willing to work, in any role, to improve Pakistan’s cricket, saying, My services are always available, because it is an honor, for Pakistani cricket.
