Sarfaraz Ahmed was sacked as captain of T20I and Test by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday. The choice taken precisely a year prior to the T20 World Cup, comes in the result of a whitewash at home against a second-string Sri Lankan side in the briefest arrangement of the game.
Under Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan rose to the highest point of the ICC’s T20I rankings. The 32-year-old drove Pakistan to 29 successes in the 37 T20Is, including winning a record 10 arrangement on the run.
Sarfaraz Ahmed’s success rate is 78.37, superior to any Pakistan cricketer who has driven the group in at least two T20Is.
Sarfaraz is the third-best skipper in the historical backdrop of T20I cricket after Afghanistan’s Asghar Afghan (37 successes from 47 T20Is) and India’s Rohit Sharma (12 successes from 15 T20Is).
In T20Is, the Lahore-conceived cricketer has scored 521 keeps running from 26 innings at a normal of 27.42 and has only one 50 years under his name.
Not all that great in Tests
Sarfaraz Ahmed, be that as it may, has not had an extraordinary kept running as the captain in the more extended organization of the game, enrolling only four successes in 13 matches. As captain, he has scored 568 keeps running in 23 innings at a normal of simply 25.81. He has scored five half-hundreds of years in this configuration.
In ODI cricket, Sarfaraz Ahmed drove Pakistan to 28 successes in 50 games. His most prominent accomplishment has been winning the Champions Trophy 2017, Pakistan’s just success in a 50-over worldwide competition since the 1992 World Cup triumph. In ODIs, he has amassed 804 keeps running in 38 innings at a normal of 32.16, which incorporates five half-hundreds of years.
The previous Pakistan captain neglected to score a century during his residency as captain in each of the three configurations. He had three centuries in Tests and two in ODIs before taking over as commander.
