While explaining what had happened prior to the selection of Sarfaraz, Rizwan said, “You can ask the head coach Saqlain Mushtaq about what I told him after the end of the England Test series. I was happy to see Sarfaraz perform because that is what I wanted. I personally thought that since I wasn’t able to perform, I didn’t deserve to play in the next series.

“I went to the coach and captain myself and told them that you can drop me because I haven’t performed. Two players are witnesses to this conversation. Sarfaraz has been performing in domestic and deserves his chance now. So, I was happy to see Sarfaraz perform because I asked for his inclusion. Whoever performs best for Pakistan deserves to play.”
