Clean sweep over Sri Lanka in the five-match series and captain Sarfraz Ahmed said he is looking forward for the opportunity to lift a trophy in front of home fans. The last game of the three-match Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka will be played in Lahore.
“I am very happy because we will be playing at home and if we can go on to lift the trophy in front of our fans then nothing like that,” Sarfraz gushed on Wednesday (October 25).
“T20 is one format where you can’t say one team is favourite. They have a new team but in T20s the team that plays well on the day can make the game interesting. Our focus is on the first match as it is always important to start on a high and then target the remaining matches,” Sarfraz said.
Sarfraz has been in the news after reporting an approach to spot fixing to the ICC and said the incident has not taken his attention away from the game. “Obviously I did my duty by informing. I was not scared when I informed about it, but became scared after I saw myself on the television. There was so much talk about it on the television that made me scared. But by the grace of god everything is getting normal. When you are going into a series you need to be normal and everything is going good so far,” Sarfraz explained.
