Sarfraz Ahmed scores a century in red-ball cricket after five years


Pakistan’s former skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has scored a century in red-ball cricket after a gap of almost five years.

The right-handed batsman gained his form back and struck 131 runs off 174 balls while representing Sindh against Southern Punjab on Day 3 in the ninth round of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

Sarfraz’s last century in red-ball cricket was against New Zealand in 2014 in Dubai.

It must be noted here that Sarfraz’s bad performance led his ouster from the national team as captain. His personal performance kept going down since the Champions Trophy 2017.

He has played 49 Tests, 116 ODIs and 58 T20Is for Pakistan. Under his captaincy, Pakistan won Champions Trophy 2017 and remained number one side in ICC T20I rankings.
