Wasim Akram puts his weight behind Sarfraz Ahmed

Former skipper Wasim Akram on Monday put his weight behind Sarfraz Ahmed to lead Pakistan’s captain till the 2019 World Cup.
Speaking to the press in the metropolis, the legendary fast bowler said that the skipper received punishment over his error.
“We highlighted Sarfraz’s mistake all over the world. The social media raised the issue from time to time. There are a few people who are happy over the ban,” he said.
Responding to a question, on the media reporting claiming a verbal spat between the senior players and Coach Mickey Arthur during the test series, Akram said: “After such a bad performance one can’t expect coach and captain to sing lullabies to the team.”
He said that obviously tempers are high on bad performances but dressing room talks should not be leaked out.
The former fast bowler said that Pakistan needs a long term Pakistan.
“Shoaib Malik won’t be in the team after World Cup. Sarfaraz should remain captain. The PCB must appoint a vice-captain soon,” he said.
