Sarfraz Ahmed says Pakistan’s bounceback ability can turn the tables in next games against England
LONDON - The Twenty-20 skipper and national team’s wicket keeper Sarfraz Ahmed has said he is confident that the team can turn the Pakistan-England series around, even after the team's embarassing 300-plus run defeat at Old Trafford last week.

“We are a strong side and our coaching staff is committed to helping the team to respond well in the next two games,” he said.

“We have put in a lot of hard work and preparation for this tour. I am confident that after a short break between the Test matches, we have the ability and will make a comeback in this series," he said while talking to

Sarfraz, who in 23 Test matches has scored 1399 runs at an average of over forty-three, said it is always tough to make a comeback after a defeat the kind of defeat Pakistan recently suffered.

“We will consider what changes need to be done and have had a sight of the pitch,” he added.

Speaking about the form of Younis Khan, Sarfraz said the former captain is one of the main players in the team.

“Apart from Younis, we have been winning with the likes of Misbah-ul-Haq, Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq for the past few years and we cannot write off any of these players based upon a few bad innings,” he said.

“Younis not only works hard on his fitness and in the nets, he is also a great source of inspiration and strength for the team. I am convinced that he will make a comeback just like in the past when he’s come through for Pakistan with a big innings when his team needed it most,” he explained.
