Karachi [Pakistan], Feb 13 (ANI): Dismissing the impression that leading the national team in across three formats of the game is burdening him, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed said that he has always tried to bring the best out of the team in every format of the game.
Insisting that it is a great honour for him to be appointed as the captain in all three formats of the game, Sarfraz said that he had always tried to give his 100 percent while enjoying the game.
"It is great honour for me that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed me captain in all three formats; and this [responsibility] in no way is burdening me," the Dawn quoted Sarfraz, as saying.
"I have always enjoyed playing cricket in every format and tried to produce my best and bring the best out of the national team [as captain]," the 30-year-old added.
The Pakistan skipper, who rose to fame after guiding the national side to ICC Champions Trophy glory last year, said that he is also disappointed by the side's defeat against New Zealand, adding that their batting did not click according to the plans.
It should be noted that the Pakistan cricket has seen much internal strife between rival clique, including the infamous Waqar Younis-led mutiny against the then skipper Wasim Akram during the 1990s.
Such conflicts reared its head again when Hasan Ali stared at Sarfraz in an act of apparent dissent after the skipper criticised the fast-bowler for some wayward bowling during the tour to New Zealand.
