Off The Field

It’s been a while since former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed played for the national team. In the aftermath of a poor ICC World Cup 2019, plenty of changes were made in Pakistan cricket including a big one in the leadership where Babar Azam replaced Sarfaraz as the limited-overs captain while Azhar Ali was made the Test skipper.

While there’s no doubting that Sarfaraz is getting much more personal time than he used to get in his career before, the break period meant that the veteran wicket-keeper batsman was available to celebrate his son’s third birthday.

A video of Sarfaraz’s son, Abdullah, was shared on social media on the occasion where he could be seen playing some glorious cricketing shots. Considering he is only 3 years of age at the moment, it’s fair to say that Abdullah has quite bright chances of becoming a professional cricketer like his dad one day.

On January 28, Sarfaraz and his wife were also blessed with a baby girl. The ex-Pak skipper announced the news of the same on social media.

As for the cricketing career, Sarfaraz last played for Pakistan on October 09 against Sri Lanka at the National Stadium. Under his leadership, the Pakistan team were clean swept by the Lankans 3-0, forcing the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take drastic steps and not just strip Sarfaraz off his captaincy responsibilities but also drop him out of the squad in all formats.
