Pakistani former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed said he is ready for the upcoming four-day match against the Australian Prime Minister XI, expressing his readiness to confront the challenges awaiting the team.


While talking to the media in Canberra, wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed reflected on the inspiring innings by Chris Gayle at Manuka Oval. Sarfaraz recalled, “I remember watching Chris Gayle’s incredible innings of 200 runs against Zimbabwe at Manuka Oval. Now, as we brace ourselves for a four-day clash in Canberra against Australia, the weather seems to be good. This match holds immense significance as it kickstarts the three-match test series against the formidable Australian team.”

Displaying confidence in his team’s abilities, Sarfaraz emphasized the strength of the Pakistani lineup. “Australia boasts good batters, but we are no less. With Abdullah, Babar, Imam, Saud, and Agha in our ranks, we are well-equipped for the challenge,” he affirmed.

Appreciating the quality bowlers within the squad, Sarfaraz praised their abilities. “Shaheen and Hasan are exceptional, and we have the likes of Mir Hamza, Khurram Shehzad, and Fahim, who have proven their grit in domestic competitions.”

Sarfaraz Ahmed extended congratulations to Shan Masood’s leadership. It’s always an honor to lead your country, and I want to congratulate Shan Masood for his role. The camaraderie between Babar Azam, Muhammad Hafeez, and Shan Masood is a testament to the strong bond within our camp, he added.

Ending on a humble note, Sarfaraz expressed his willingness to contribute in any capacity to the team’s success, stating, “I am happy to play any role – whether as a batter or a wicket-keeper – in contributing to the success of the team.”
