A stylish right-handed batsman and very elegant and neat wicketkeeper, Sarfraz Ahmed has been struggling to break into the international side. He has been around for a while and he captained the U-19 team, leading them to World Cup victory in 2006. Sarfraz first appeared on the international scene when he was called up in the middle of the South Africa ODI series, and played the fifth ODI. He didn't get to bat, but was very promising behind the stumps.
 
With batting being a major element of a wicket-keepers skill nowadays, he needs to work hard in the nets if he is to shift the the Akmals as the number one choice behind the stumps.
 
In the recently completed 2013/14 President's Trophy Sarfraz Ahmed scored 195 runs at an average of 32.50 which included a knock of 165 against SNGPL.
