Former Pakistan pacer comments on the tussle
Former Pakistan fast-bowler Mohammad Amir has backed wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed in his rant with batsman Mohammad Hafeez regarding Mohammad Rizwan’s performance in the first T20I against South Africa.
The veteran all-rounder heaped praise on the wicketkeeper-batsman following his unbeaten century in the series opener.
Sarfaraz, who led the side to victory in the 2017 International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy, criticized the Lahore Qalandars players’ remarks.
The left-arm pacer then joined in the conversation stated that the Karachi-born is the “Pride of Pakistan” as the country enjoyed tremendous success under his leadership.
