Sarfraz Ahmed sets world record for most wins as Pakistan T20I captain
HARARE - With Pakistan’s win over Zimbabwe by 74 runs in the opening match of the Twenty20 International triangular series on Sunday, Sarfraz Ahmed has set a new record for most wins as the country’s captain.
The 31-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman, who led Pakistan team to victory in 23 T20 internationals, has the highest winning percentage (86.96%) as a captain in T20Is (minimum 20 innings).
Under Ahmed's leadership, Pakistan have made massive strides, including Champions Trophy 2017, especially in the shorter format of the game. In 2018 alone, they have won seven out of their eight matches, played against New Zealand, the Windies and Scotland.
