'If team is losing because of me, then I will think to quit Test captaincy' - Sarfraz Ahmed

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed after losing the Test series against New Zealand by 2-1, admitted that the pressure that comes after a series like this definitely makes him consider to step down from Test captaincy.

“If I make mistakes, or it is because of me that the team is losing then I will definitely think about it, and if there is someone better than me to do the Test captaincy, then he should,” Sarfraz said.

Expressing disappointment over the test defeat, the captain further said “When things like this happen, you do start to think about it. But let’s see what happens. The tour of South Africa is a tough one and if you start thinking like this before it then it is not helpful for anyone.”

Sarfraz during the post-match presentation ceremony said that they failed to cash in the opportunities found the Test series.

“We did not capitalise on the opportunities, we got our chances in both the first and the third Test, but we failed to make the most out of them, especially as the batting unit, where we could get a lead, we missed those opportunities,” said Sarfraz during the post-match presentation.

Pakistan will now play the three-match Test series against South Africa at Centurion starting from December 26 to 30, 2018, under Sarfraz’s leadership.
