After making an incredible recovery in the first Test against New Zealand, Sarfaraz Ahmed boosted his resume by surpassing all previous wicketkeeper-batters to become Pakistan’s top run-scorer in Test matches.
After his incredible 86-run innings in the 50th Test of his career, Sarfaraz eclipsed Kamran Akmal, who had amassed 2643 runs, to move up to second place on the record with 2743 runs. After four years, the 35-year-old made a comeback to the national Test team.
In 2019, he played his last Test against South Africa. On the first day of the first Test, the wicket-keeper batsman stood for a good 194-run partnership with batting master and team skipper Babar Azam as the two overpowered the Kiwi bowlers.
