Misbah Reveals Whether Sarfaraz Ahmed Will Play the T20 World Cup

Sarfaraz Ahmed’s hard work is paying off, which is quite evident from his fitness and batting in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020.

A number of wicket-keepers will be fighting for a spot in the T20 World Cup which is scheduled later this year in Australia and the former captain is also a strong contender. Pakistan head coach, Misbah-ul-Haq, has also admitted that the 32-year-old wicket-keeper batsman has improved his batting skills alongside fitness.

He also acknowledged Sarfaraz’s good batting form, saying that he is currently under consideration for a place in the national side. The final team will be decided only after a couple of matches that are scheduled ahead of the mega event.

Sarfaraz has been playing very well in the PSL 2020 and he is also fit. While he is in consideration for the World Cup, there will be matches after the PSL to decide which player will get the call.

Other wicket-keepers who can press for a call-up include Zeeshan Ashraf, Azam Khan, Rohail Nazir, and Kamran Akmal. It remains to be seen whether the regular wicket-keeper, Mohammad Rizwan, stays with the team or not. If he does, he will certainly be a second-choice wicket-keeper batsman in the team, especially after his dismal batting displays this season as even his own franchise has removed him from the playing XI.


Do you think Sarfaraz should be given another go? Let us know in the comments.

  • Yes sarfaraz will definitely will be part of t20 wc as well as amir and wahab

    Must give another go 100%

  • No, he should not be considered in the team as he does not fit in T20 squad due to his batting skills.

    • Aun bhai agr itna ha na tou khud khel lo ja ka na kuch karna ha ir jo kar raha ha usko demotivate karna ha yahi kaam ha aap jaisa logon ka
      Sarfaraz ko t20 main khelana chahiya

  • No way sarfraz is not capable of hitting sixes and this game requires six hitters i would say the best option is kamran akmal because is got great experience and he is a power hitter plus as you can see Pakistan is struggling to have power hitters so that will make the team in a really good shape and hopefully INSHAALLAH we will won the world cup no doubt kamran akmal is the best option because he is a great player on fast pitches in Australia

  • Sarfaraz should be the part of T20 WC because he is not just a wicket keeper batsman he was a formar captain as well he knew how to control his team in pressure condition. He also guides Babar Azam in such conditions.

  • Indeed. In fact he must be given consideration as he is carrying wealth of experience of playing international cricket which is an edge over other contenders.

  • If sarfaraz Ahmed is capable so fuck off the marit???….
    Call off all events those are being organized to find new talent….

  • Kamran Akmal is best keeper 100 also in every psl no other player 100 including babar Azam akmal is best choice

  • Akmal shud not be considered at all because firstly age is not on his side secondly he has only one 100 in this psl and his other performances are not upto the mark thirdly he cannot be trusted with gloves anymore. Sarfaraz has been key to t20 side, took pak at the top of t20 ranking. In my opinion he shouldn’t have been dropped from the team and he shud still be captain. Rest of the players are young and cannot be trusted in a global tournament. Azam is good but needs to work on his fitness to be eligible for national side. Rohail hasn’t played in psl so he will be a gamble which is not in the great interest and Zeeshan needs to bat responsibly in psl to be considered. I like Rizwan but I think he is better suited for tests.

    • Umar Siddiq was a good choice as well, but, he wasn’t picked by any of the franchises this year.
