The International Cricket Council (ICC) has paid a tribute to former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed on his 33rd birthday.
The sport’s governing body shared the highlights of Sarfaraz’s crucial half-century against Sri Lanka in the 2017 edition of Champions Trophy as he led Pakistan to their maiden title.
