What could be the reason?

Sarfaraz Ahmed, former Pakistan captain, left Karachi and has shifted to London. As per reports, this decision came in as he was uncertain about his career in Pakistan’s team. Last month he played his last test match against Australia in Perth. He scored only seven runs in the match. Thus, he was in the team for the first test, and for the next two tests, he was dropped. 

So far, Sarfaraz has played 54 Tests, 117 ODIs and 61 T20Is and has scored over 6000 runs in international cricket. He had six centuries and 35 half-centuries. Moreover, Sarfaraz is all set to play in the ninth season of the Pakistan Premier League (PSL). The tournament will start the next month. He will play for the Quetta Gladiators.

Moreover, Sarfaraz was replaced by Mohammad Rizwan for the last two test matches against Australia. The 36-year-old player has scored 3031 runs in Tests at an average of 37.41. He came to light in 2006 after he won the under-19 World Cup against India.  

Sarfaraz Ahmed’s record against India

As the former Pakistan captain leaves his country to settle in London, his record against India as a captain in tournaments is good. In 2006 when Pakistan won their second Under-19 title, Sarfaraz Ahmed was leading the team. The young Pakistan team went on to beat India in the Under-19 finals. That was the rise of Sarafaz Ahmed. 

Fast forward to 2017, under Sarfaraz, the team won the Champions Trophy 2017. This time too, India were the opponents. It seems like he loves beating India in the tournaments. Apart from this, he has an astounding T20 record of 29 wins out of 37 matches. The overall win percentage was 78.37%.
