Sarfaraz Ahmed Breaks Silence On Reports Of Shifting From Pakistan To UK In Disheartenment

Pakistan keeper-batter Sarfaraz Ahmed rubbished the reports of leaving Pakistan and getting settled in the United Kingdom. He thrashed the fake news and stated that the media should confirm before running fabricated news.

On Saturday (20th January), media reports in Pakistan jolted the entire cricket fraternity. As per the reports, it was learned that former Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed migrated to the United Kingdom with his full family and won’t be staying in Pakistan.

According to reports, Sarfaraz Ahmed took the decision because he was hopeless about his for the Pakistan team and was indicated that he wouldn’t be playing any further games. Therefore he decided to move out of his homeland but would continue to play in the Pakistan Super League.

Sarfaraz Khan recently played for Pakistan in the Test series against Australia. He played the first match and then was dropped for the last two games. The keeper-batter scored just 7 runs in that game and was replaced by Mohammad Rizwan, who did a decent job, scoring 193 runs from four innings at an average of 48.25.

The reports of Sarfaraz Ahmed leaving Pakistan triggered a lot of reactions. It was both the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as well as the keeper-batter received a lot of flake for development. It raised quite a lot of eyebrows and made me wonder about the decision.

However, with all the speculations around, Sarfaraz Ahmed has quashed all the reports and has slammed all the reports related to the same, saying that it is sad to see fake news circulating. Speaking to the Samma Digital, he explained:

“I can’t even think of leaving Pakistan. Confirm before running such fabricated news. Sad to see such news.”
