Sarfraz Ahmad is training hard for the World Cup 2019


Pakistan’s skipper Sarfraz Ahmed is spending quality time with his family before an all-important World Cup slated to start from May 30 in England and Wales.

Sarfraz, who will join the team for a fitness test on April 15 and 16 in Lahore, shared a video from his official Twitter account where he and his son Abdullah are seen playing cricket.

“Mere aur abdullah ke running between the wicket aik jaise hai [I and Abdullah are same while running between the wickets],” Sarfraz put this as a caption on his video.

Sarfraz never misses a chance to have fun with his son as earlier he was found playing cricket with Abdullah at his home’s street.

The skipper had taken rest along with five frontline players during the ODI series against Australia in the UAE. Now all the players will reunite in Lahore to get prepared for a long 2.5 months tour to the UK which covers the World Cup.

According to the team management, only those players clearing the fitness test will get the ticket for the UK. The boys have to score 17.5 or above points in YoYo test to impress the management.

The national team will firstly play England in the five-match ODI series followed by a T20I match against the hosts. The green shirts will play their opening match of the World Cup against West Indies on May 31 at Trent Bridge.
