Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, is hopeful that he will be the Captain of the team in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup in England.
He is currently serving a four-match ban. This is because of his racist comments for South African cricketer Andile Phehlukwayo. In his place, all-rounder Shoaib Malik captained Pakistan in the fourth and fifth ODI. Malik is also captaining the team in the ongoing T20I series against the Proteas.
On Sunday, Sarfraz told reporters that he is getting a positive response from the Pakistan Cricket Board. He told this regarding the holding of position of the captain in the World Cup. Although guilty, he insist media is only considering on one side of the story.
Sarfraz told to reporters :
The decision is with the Pakistan Cricket Board, but I have got positive vibes about it that I will be the captain for the World Cup
Sarfraz also added, “Only one word was played up in the media. He (Phehlukwayo) told me that I used wrong words about his mother, but I told him that being a Muslim we believe that whatever success we achieve it’s because of our mother’s prayers and that I did not use the words in the wrong context.”
