Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has said that Sarfraz Ahmed is the perfect choice to lead Pakistan. While speaking in an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Razzaq said Sarfraz’s leadership skills have been instrumental in forming a well-knit unit.

“Sarfraz is the ideal person to lead Pakistan,” said Razzaq. “If he was not the captain, the team would have been in a lot of trouble. He has kept a cordial atmosphere inside the dressing room through his good leadership skills.”

The 39-year-old — who claimed close to 400 wickets and accumulated over 7000 runs in Test cricket — also believes that the current lot of Pakistan cricketer are selfish — in terms of their performances.

“Right now I feel that players are being selfish with their performances, which is why the team as a whole is not performing well. This is evident from our rankings in Test cricket and ODI cricket,” he said. “Players seem satisfied with their performance despite the team not doing well.”
