LAHORE: Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has come out in support of Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad after their failure to perform against Sri Lanka in the ongoing T20I series in Lahore.

While responding a query regarding Umar and Shehzad, Sarfaraz said “If you look at their domestic performances, they’ve been really well and deserved an opportunity.”

“We will need to rethink about our bowling strategies and also be sharper on the field. A couple of key run out chances were missed,” the skipper added.

However, Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka also expressed delight after the result saying: “We played some quality cricket and that’s why we got these results. Rajapaksa played a masterclass innings. We had a plan and did well to stick to it.”
