Born May 22, 1987: Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan wicketkeeper-bastman | Cricket News | Instant News

Former Pakistan captain and experienced goalkeeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed, who has appeared in a total of 223 matches for the national team in various formats so far, was born today in 1987.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) handles official Twitter and sends a warm birthday wish to Sarfraz, who is 33 years old on Friday.

Posting videos of Sarfraz’s beatings during his team’s 2017 Champions Cup match against Sri Lanka, the world cricket government body told his followers that the player brought Pakistan to glory during the prestigious tournament.

Sarfraz made his international debut in his national team’s One-Day International (ODI) match against arch-rivals India at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in November 2007.

He went on to make 116 appearances for Pakistan in a 50-plus format of international cricket and scored a total of 2,302 runs in it, including two centuries and 11 and a half centuries.

Sarfraz, who received the first Test cap during the series against Australia in January 2010, has appeared in a total of 49 matches for Pakistan in the longest game format and collected 2,657 runs in it with an average of 36.4.

In addition, he also played in 58 games for Pakistan in the shortest game format, with a total of 812 T20I rounds.

Sarfraz was appointed as the captain of Pakistan’s T20I after the 2016 International Twenty20 International Cricket Council (ICC) in India before also being appointed as ODI captain after Azhar Ali resigned from that position in February 2017.

After the retirement of Misbah-ul-Haq in May 2017, Sarfraz was also appointed as the team captain in the longest playing format.

Under his captain, Pakistan won the Champions Trophy for the first time in 2017 after winning a devastating 180-run victory over India in the final at The Oval.

In April 2019, he helped Pakistan win five of nine ICC Cricket World Cup league matches. However, Pakistan’s cricket team failed to reach the semifinals.

Sarfraz was sacked as captain of the Pakistan team after his team’s poor performance ahead of his team’s tour in Australia in October 2019.
