The skipper won the hearts of people back at home in his patriotic gesture of wearing his national identity with pride during his maiden visit to Buckingham Palace.
Sarfraz wore white kurta shalwar and green blazer with the brooch of a star- a symbol of the Pakistan Cricket Board. All the captains then posed for pictures with Queen Elizabeth. People are now hoping for the Pakistan cricket team, under the leadership of Sarfraz Ahmed, to lift the World Cup Trophy this year.
Sarfraz Ahmed also met Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, before the opening ceremony.
While People in Pakistan are elated with Sarfraz’s act but it is the Indian journalist Tarek Fateh, who seems to be displeased by him for appearing in Kurta Shalwar to meet Queen Elizabeth when other skippers have appeared in suits in accordance with the western culture.

“This makes my day, what a worth seeing the moment. Nations build up due to following own Culture. We will change together Insha Allah,” wrote a Twitter user.
“I don’t understand why ppl criticizing #SarfarazAhmed for wearing shalwar kameez in #CWC19 ceremony, rather it reminded me of the great #DrSalam who wore his traditional dress while receiving the first #NobelPrizefor #Pakistani. One should be proud of one’s cultural heritage!” pointed a Twitter user in her tweet.
