Former Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has expressed his desire to make his international comeback special after he was included in the 29-member squad for the team’s much-anticipated tour of England later in the year.

Notably, Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and three T20Is against England and Sarfaraz, who last featured in a Pakistan playing XI in October last year, also managed to find a place in the squad.

“I am positive about the opportunity now and I will give my best whenever I get the chance in order to regain my regular place in the team,” Sarfaraz was quoted as saying by GeoSuper.TV. (via IANS)

“I want to make my comeback memorable with a stellar performance for the team. Ups and downs are part and parcel of a player’s career.

“When I was captain, I was more focused on how the team performed but now I will be able to focus on my own performance.”

Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq had stated after squad announcement that Sarfaraz had been included in the team as a back-up wicket-keeper.

“As far as being a back-up wicketkeeper is concerned, I am not worried about being the first or second choice,” the veteran wicket-keeper said.

“I am happy that I am back in the team and having two wicket keepers is good for the team. We have seen this in past with Moin Khan and Rashid Latif.”

England will play against West Indies in limited-overs cricket after the conclusion of England’s three-match Test series against West Indies.
