Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed is not bothered about the talks regarding the burden of all format captaincy, saying he doesn’t feel any pressure and is trying to manage everything with the best of his abilities to get all thing smoother and win matches for his country.

He is hoping that the things will improve further and is looking forward to more wins and get his team ready for the upcoming mega ICC event in England – the 2019 ICC World Cup.

Sarfraz told Dawn on Sunday (November 4), “I just want to say that I want to play cricket. As a player and as captain I feel no pressure. I’m trying to manage everything with the best of my abilities and I hope things will improve further.”

The wicket-keeper batsman further said that he is not over thinking about results at the moment, saying the team is moving in the right direction.

The 31-year-old further added, “As we all know results can change — sometimes you win and sometimes you lose but as captain I’m confident about how things are progressing.”

Commenting on World Cup 2019 preparation, the skipper added, “The ICC Cricket World is a big event. Everyone knows the value of the event and I’m trying to make a good combination ahead of the World Cup. My real aim is to analyse our positive and weak points so we are fully sorted before entering the World Cup.”

He is also happy with his team recent performance especially against Australia and New Zealand. Sarfraz signed off by saying, “I’m very happy about this winning streak. Winning 11 consecutive T20 series is a great feat and the credit goes to the team management and the players for the wonderful performances. May be as a team we are not applauded as much but still I’m very happy.”
