Sarfraz to stay consistent with his high level of performances



Pakistan’s former wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal said that Sarfraz has set the stakes high and now he has to be consistent with his performance.

Pakistan’s current wicket-keeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed has proved himself to be a key player of the team for past couple of series. The 28 year-old made his debut in 2010, but proved himself in 2013 and since then he has been the regular member of the national side.


Sarfraz, with his blistering performance with the bat and behind the stumps sidelined Kamran and his brother Adnan Akmal from Pakistan’s Test team and slowly slowly cemented his place in the ODIs as well.



The 33 year-old Kamran who last played a Test match in 2010 and an ODI in 2013 said that Sarfraz has done well for Pakistan, but the challenge for him is to maintain his high levels performances for the national side as he is been doing for past couple of seasons.


Kamran further said that he wishes him luck, as the one who performs best for the team deserves to stay with the team. Recently Sarfraz was dropped for the two T20 matches against Sri-Lanka after playing a successful Test and ODI series.


According to Kamran there is nothing to be worried about, he said as player we should have complete faith on the judgement of the captain. As he is the one who knows better and decides the right combination. It is also possible that the captain and coach decided to rest Sarfraz who has been playing non-stop in three Test matches and five ODIs.

In July Kamran helped Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel to win their first Caribbean Premier League title said that he liked the competition between Sarfraz and Mohammad Rizwan and also said that he will not miss any chance to represent Pakistan again if he is recalled.
