As far as reserve wicketkeeper is concerned, we haven’t played a big series commences on 4 to 5 Test matches. So we haven’t picked any one yet. But if we need we have a good backup available in shape of Mohammad Rizwan, 31-year-old said.

Giving his views on Asia cup strategy, Sarfraz said: we would prefer to bat first because it is very difficult to bat under light. The weather would be very hot and humid under light which will help pacers. So we will try to bat first or chose cording to the pitch.

The captain also refused the comment on Virat Kohli by saying it is their own issue so won’t comment on it.

Pakistan team also announce to donated Rs3.2 million for Basha-Diamer dam.

Commenting on Pakistan team’s selection, he said, the team is selected with input from all of us which includes Chief Selector, Head Coach and captain.
