While elaborating on Sarfaraz’s chances during the upcoming tour Rashid Latif said, “Sarfaraz will be Pakistan’s first choice wicketkeeper in T20Is and second choice in Tests. Rizwan’s performances in Test matches have been really good so far. So I don’t think Sarfaraz will be preferred over Rizwan in Test cricket. The reason for taking Sarfaraz along is because they had to pick a bigger squad as the team will be in quarantine initially due to the pandemic.”

The 51 year old while discussing the matter further said, “It will be a difficult challenge for Sarfaraz to sit on the bench after leading Pakistan for three to four years and winning titles like Champions Trophy for the country. However, it is not impossible and I expect him to fight and overcome this tough task.”

The former wicket-keeper batsman also believed that the tour is likely to be tough and hence said, “We don’t have matches where Pakistan has done well in the past. Our performances have been better at Lord’s and the Oval in London. It will be a tough tour for Pakistan. In 2016, they had Misbah and Younis which helped them in drawing the series. But this time around, it will be tough.”
