Sarfraz is a pressure game player: Rashid Latif

Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif believes that wicket-keeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed is player, who has performed well under pressure and therefore be picked for crunch matches during World Cup.

“Sarfraz has shown he can perform brilliantly in crunch matches. If he has failed to perform in practice matches then it doesn’t meann he will not be able perform in main tournament matches,” said Rashid, a former wicket-keeper batsman.

He added that playing a makeshift wicket-keeper during key Indian match may prove detrimental for the team.

Umar Akmal kept wickets during warm-up match against England and also scored a fifty, which Pakistan won.

“Even a single catch dropped or a missed stump can cost a match to the team,” Rashid said.

“I hope and pray Pakistan wins the match against India on February 15. But every player his to put his best to pull a triumph,” Rashid warned.

Rashid believes that Indian Ajinkya Rahane will play a vital role in Indian World Cup campaign. “Rahane is just superb with the bat. I rate him above Virat Kohli,” he added.

    True. He was ‘oxygen for the team’ few weeks ago. Looks like captain and coach were waiting for an opportunity to drop him. He has not been given confidence which has affected his keeping. He has been under scrutiny too much and under pressure by captain, coach and …. Guess who?.. Ramiz raja the great.
