Pakistani skipper, Babar Azam, says that he turns to former cricketer Sarfaraz Ahmed for advice in a difficult situation. He expressed these views at a dinner hosted by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to honor the players for their outstanding performance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The ceremony was organized at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.
Babar Azam was asked who he turns to for advice in the team to decide on a tricky situation. He asserted that he seeks the advice of senior player Shoaib Malik, vice-captain Shadab Khan and Sarfaraz Ahmed for a decision in an extremely tricky situation.
“Whenever I am in difficult situations, I go to Saifi (Sarfaraz) Bhai. He has led the team for a long time and is an experienced captain. His thoughts are nice and whenever I am stuck in a difficult situation, I go to Saifi Bhai and his advice helps me a lot,” Babar said.
