Following his remarkable return in the first Test against New Zealand, Sarfaraz Ahmed added another feather to his cap by becoming Pakistan’s top run-scorer among wicketkeeper-batters in Tests. Sarfaraz Ahmed eclipsed Kamran Akmal on the list with his 86-run effort in the 50th Test match of his career, accumulating 2743 runs. After a four-year absence, the 35-year-old returned to the national Test squad.
In 2019, he played his final Test against South Africa.
On the first day of the first Test, the wicket-keeper batter stood for a good 194-run partnership with batting master and team skipper Babar Azam as the two overpowered the Kiwi bowlers.
