Sarfraz only option for captain's job: Inzamam

ISLAMABAD: Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq Sunday said Sarfraz Ahmed was the only viable option for the captain’s job

09 Dec 2018

ISLAMABAD: Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq Sunday said Sarfraz Ahmed was the only viable option for the captain’s job at the moment because he was performing very good.

The chief selector claimed that not a single decision was taken without taking the captain on board, he said while talking to a private news channel.

The captain must have confidence in his players, and everyone, including coach Mickey Arthur, was on the same page, he added.

He said the side was now too focused on one-day cricket and that there were very few off-spinners in the country.

The chief selector said it was difficult to find replacements for veterans Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan in the longest format and urged the experienced duo of Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq to further improve their performance.

Inzamam said PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and predecessor Najam Sethi had different approaches but added that neither interfere with the selection process.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan had supported him a lot and that the side was focused on winning the World Cup in England next year.

Commenting on Yasir Shah’s performance, he said he was performing brilliantly and may be given a chance in the limited-overs format as well and we hope that he goes on to claim 500 wickets,” he added.

Inzamam said the team had failed to handle pressure in the fourth innings and the players would have to show some responsibility. The openers could not perform as per our expectations. he added.

He confirmed that pacer Mohammad Abbas would be available for first Test against South Africa.
