We always expected it to be a hard game -Sarfraz Ahmad

Pakistani Cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmad after recent defeats have shared his views about the match.

He said that we are hurt too as no one wants to lose a World Cup match like that. All those who have played this great game will vouch for the pain the players undergo following such an ordinary performance.

What went wrong? I can say a number of things, but by stating those facts I will not try to hide behind excuses.

To begin with, the starting time was very crucial. A 10:30 start made the toss very important. We too wanted to bowl first but toss is never in your control. I lost it and the West Indies, like any other team, would have done, sent us into bat.

“We always expected it to be a hard game. We were ready for a barrage of short pitch balls and had prepared for it. But, we lost too many wickets up front that pegged us back.”

Kamran backs Sarfraz, willing to play as batsman

LAHORE: Ruling out any rivalry with ODI and T20 captain Sarfraz Ahmed, wicket-keeper/batsman Kam­ran Akmal who has made probables camp said on Tuesday that if selected he could even play as a batsman.

Talking to reporters here before the start of the training camp set up at the Gaddafi Stadium ahead of the West Indies tour, the long discarded Kamran said he had been focusing on his batting while stating that ODI skipper in Sarfraz was throwing up fine performances as a captain and as a player due to which no one could replace him.

“I will play as per the role given to me. You people might have observed that not only I have been focusing on my batting abilities but my batting has also improved over the last few years,” maintained the top-order batsman.

When asked there used to be a fierce rivalry between former wicket-keepers in Moin Khan and Rashid Latif, Kamran dispelled the impression stating that young wicket-keeper/batsman in Mohammad Rizwan also played along with Sarfraz before him.

“The performance I gave as a batsman both in the domestic circuit as well as in the PSL makes me a strong contender for a place in the national team,” he further said.

On the other hand, there are reports the team management is aware of the fact that induction of Kamran, who was declared PSL’s best batsman, best player and best wicket-keeper in presence of Quetta Gladiators’ wicket-keeper Sarfraz, into the national side will put the T20 and ODI skipper under pressure.

Asked there were reports that he had not passed the fitness test, Kamran while rejecting those reports stated: “I appeared in the fitness test on Tuesday and succeeded in meeting all fitness standards. Also, I think trainer Grant Luden is the best man to answer your question.

“Fitness has never been my problem as I hardly miss training,” Kamran claimed before stating that if selected his target would be to cement his place in the team by giving match-winning performance.

The top-order batsman said if he remained fit he could play for four to five years. “It is your fitness which prolongs your career. So if I remain fit I could play for four to five years,” he commented while stating that he was giving extra time to his fielding and batting in the training camp.

Meanwhile, left-arm fast bowler Rumman Raees Khan said he had his own style of celebration after claiming wicket, adding that it was good that some bowlers were copying him.

Rumman said he was happy that he had been invited to the probables camp after performing well in the domestic cricket and the PSL.

“The coaching staff laid more emphasis on fitness level which would help Pakistan cricket in the long run,” remarked the fast bowler who said he enjoyed his second stint with the Islamabad United.

“I learnt a lot from the experience of former fast bowler Wasim Akram and ex-Australian batsman Dean Jones during the PSL,” the pacer further said.

Meanwhile, chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is likely to announce the Pakistan squad on Wednesday for the upcoming T20 and ODI series against the West Indies.

Dawn learnt that Inzamam is considering the option of naming the squad soon after or during the 50-over practice match at the Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday.

Shahryar expects Misbah to retire after West Indies tour

KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan does not expect Test captain Misbahul Haq to continue playing for Pakistan beyond the upcoming tour of West Indies.

While talking to the Daily Express, the 82-year-old revealed that after the disappointing tour of New Zealand and Australia, he had asked the veteran skipper to decide his future himself.

“I had a word with Misbah and asked him to decide about his future,” said Shaharyar. “He said he will get back to me after reviewing his form in the PSL, following which he contacted me and expressed his desire to go on the West Indies tour.

“Keeping his services for the country in mind, I retained him as the captain because I think he wants to finish his career on a high, and the tour of Caribbean will be a great opportunity for him. However, since he will turn 43 during that tour, I don’t see him playing for Pakistan after that.”

Shaharyar, while talking about the possible return of international cricket to Pakistan, added that hosting a successful Pakistan Super League (PSL) final was a small step towards a long journey.

“It was an opportunity for us to show to the world our security arrangements,” he said. “However, it will not be fair to believe that just one match can convince international teams to come to Pakistan.

“We’ve invited Bangladesh and Sri Lankan team for the home series, but there is nothing certain yet. Even the World XI’s proposed tour of Pakistan is not confirmed yet, but if it is materialised, then we should be able to have four matches in the space of one week.”
