Sarfaraz Ahmed led Pakistan to win their first Champions Trophy title. He was handed over the captaincy band just few weeks back, in his first global tournament he led the lowest ranked team of the tournament to win the ultimate gold. Sarfaraz Ahmed has always been a competent captain. During 2004 U-19 World Cup, Pakistan defeated a talented Indian team in the final, defending a small target of just 110 runs. Anwar Ali destroyed Indian batting with his massive in-dippers that got him six wickets on the big occasion. The wicket-keeper batsman is known for his fighting spirit and street smartness, it will not be a wrong statement if you call him a typical Karachi’s cricketer. He is unorthodox, flexible enough to adjust himself in different playing conditions, something identical to Moin Khan or Rashid Latif. Sarfraz Ahmed is now Pakistan’s Test skipper as well after Misbah’s retirement.
