Sarfraz is the only Pakistani captain to have led the men in green to an ICC Champions Trophy victory and that too when the country was 9th in the ICC ODI rankings!

The wicket-keeper batsman to his credit has also led the green shirts to an ICC under-19 world cup victory and hence, let’s just hope that the 31-year-old is able to keep up the good work during Asia Cup, 2018 and the ICC World Cup next year.
