Sarfraz Ahmed was named Pakistan’s T20 captain after Shahid Afridi had stepped down following team’s dismal show in the 2016 World Twenty20 in India.
Afridi took to social media website Twitter to congratulate the wicket keeper batsman on his appointment.
Good decision to see @SarfarazA_54 leading PAK T-20 he is energetic, passionate and a fighter!
