Pakistan's Champions Trophy 2017 winner Sarfaraz Ahmed's career has been doubted since he was replaced by Mohammad Rizwan, a like-for-like candidate for the wicketkeeping batter spot. He has rarely been in the squad since his dismissal after the World Cup 2019, however, has been a crucial part of the domestic arena.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has released a detailed statement regarding Sarfaraz's career, whose stint with the team looks entirely ended. The board has clearly signalled to prefer young Mohammad Haris in place of Sarfaraz, hinting at the end of his career with the national team.
Highlighting Sarfaraz's services, including CT17, U19 World Cup, and much more, the board chairman believes it is hard to drop him, but he is more in favour of replacing him with Haris, with a bright future.
While interacting with fans, the chairman quoted,
"It's difficult to drop Sarfraz Ahmed due to his services for Pakistan but we are planning for the future, I know Muhammad Haris has talent and he will perform,"
