Pakistan miserably lost the ICC World Cup 2019. In order to not to see any more miserable performances, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) sacked Sarfaraz Ahmed as the skipper and chose Babar Azam instead.
Other than this, Sarfaraz was axed from the national squad with Mohammad Rizwan replacing him instead. Rizwan and Sarfaraz both being the mid-order wicketkeeping batters, are coming as a competitor to each other.
We have seen in the last few T20Is, Rizwan’s performances have been appealing and he won the domestic tournament-leading KPK last year either.
Sarfaraz, however, is not getting any chance to play in the playing XI as Rizwan is preferred, we are seeing consistency which means the lad is getting ready for the ICC T20 World Cup.
Notably, the two players do not see themselves as each others’ competitors but motivate and love each other to immense.
Rizwan or Sarfaraz? Here is who will play in the ICC T20 World Cup
Here are Rizwan’s last four T20 matches:
76 of 49 balls, 41 off 28 balls, 71 off 53 balls, and 43 off 32 balls. On the other hand, Sarfaraz slammed 7 off 8 balls, 40 off 33, and 81 off 40 respectively in the last three matches.
Despite PSL, we are seeing consistency in Rizwan’s batting line-up and his performance behind the wickets. However, both of them are failing to prove themselves as worthy captain in PSL yet.
QG, led by Sarfaraz, have lost all consecutive encounters, whereas, Sultans of Rizwan have won one out of four.
As per the analysis, Sarfaraz will be left out of the squad for the ICC T20 World Cup. The mega-tournament is all set to start in the second half of 2021 in India, being its organizer.
