Sarfaraz Ahmed has officially been named as the test captain of Pakistan cricket team on this very Tuesday, after having a great Champions trophy and winning the title this person is definitely gained wings on Air
The announcement was made by Shahryar Khan, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, who said that Sarfraz had accepted the offer made to him to lead the side in Tests.
Sarfaraz is all set to become the 32nd test captain of the Pakistan cricket team and this is definitely a dream come true moment for the lad as he is progressing very well as time is passing by.
“I take this opportunity to announce Ahmed as our Test captain in addition to one-day and Twenty20 captain,” Khan said at a function held to honour the Champions Trophy winning side. “I and Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq had decided already and I think this is the right time to declare it.”
The wicketkeeper-batsman, who has been leading Pakistan in limited-overs, has been asked to take over the mantle in the longest format as well following the retirement of Misbah-ul-haq at the end of the West Indies tour in May 2017.
“I am honoured to be appointed Test captain,” Sarfraz said at the ceremony. “I will do my best to lift the team in all three formats and will not rest on Champions Trophy laurels.”
Sarfraz, who led Pakistan to Under-19 World Cup triumph in 2006, had recently taken the senior national side to their maiden Champions Trophy win, which turned out to be Pakistan’s first win in an ICC 50-over tournament since the 1992 World Cup.
