Ex-Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed leaves Pakistan, migrates to the UK: Reports

Sarfaraz Ahmed last played for Pakistan is the recently concluded Australia Test series Down Under.

In a shocking move, former Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has left the country and migrated to the United Kingdom, as per various reports in the Pakistan media. The reports suggested that, Sarfaraz, who led Pakistan to a Champions Trophy win in 2017, was growing uncertain of his future in the team, and decided to leave.

Despite the move, it is also reported that Sarfaraz will continue to participate in the PSL season 9, and will play for the Quetta Gladiators. The 36-year-old wants to maintain his professional relationship with the PCB going forward.

While it is still not clear, why this sudden decision, but right after the 2019 World Cup, where he led the team, he was constantly overlooked, and hardly played any matches. He last played white-ball cricket for Pakistan in 2021.
