Sarfraz Ahmed rescued by former Indian skipper with surprise words
NEW DELHI - Amid the criticism over Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has spoken in support of the Pakistan captain.
Ganguly said, “Sarfraz is a courageous player and the way he captained the team during the champions trophy last year was impeccable.”
He is a great captain and cricketers like him are not born everyday, the former Indian cricketer added.
Ganguly further said that he, himself, has served as captain and knows how it impacts them when the team does or does not perform well.
He also advised the Pakistan Cricket Board and former cricketers to support and encourage Sarfraz. “His decisions have played a key role in Pakistan’s recent matches.”
The former Indian batsman also said he was surprised that two to four new players are included in Pakistan’s squad for each series.
