Quetta Gladiators owner Nadeem Omar said people very often let national heroes down, while talking about Pakistani wicket-beater Sarfaraz Ahmed.

During Sarfaraz’s tenure as captain, Pakistan enjoyed a lot of success and even won the 2017 Champions Trophy.

However, after being stripped as skipper, Sarfaraz was sidelined and demoted to keeper-wicket-beater behind Mohammad Rizwan.

Since Rizwan has thrived in the position, Sarfaraz has been limited to a handful of international appearances over the past two years.

Omar said he was sad to see what was happening to Sarfaraz and pointed out that it was happening all too regularly to the players who had given so much to Pakistani cricket.

“It’s a common theme; we let our national heroes down like this very often,” he said. pakistan cricket.

Sarfaraz won’t feature in the next set of white balls against Australia as he wasn’t selected in the ODI and T20 squads.

The series will consist of three ODIs and a single International T20, and will start on March 29 in Lahore.
