Sarfaraz Ahmed viral video: Pakistan cricket team management stunned everyone when they announced Sarfaraz Ahmed as Mohammad Rizwan’s replacement in playing XI for PAK vs NZ Test series. The ex-Pak captain made sure to live up to the team and his fans expectations by making an incredible comeback.
In the final and fourth innings of PAK vs NZ 2nd Test, Sarfaraz had come out to bat when his team was reeling at 77/4 while chasing 319 on Day 5. Not only he just scored a brilliant century (118 runs off 176 balls) but also nearly won the match for his team. His remarkable century knock on Friday is easily one of the finest 4th innings knocks in recent times.
It was after eight long years, Sarfaraz scored a century in red-ball format (Test cricket). The ton by the former Pak skipper is also memorable as this is his first-ever century in Tests on home soil. Sarfaraz’s wife, who was present inside the stadium to catch all the live action, was in tears after the senior batter breached the triple-figure mark.
This moment 💚

A dramatic end of New Zealand vs Pakistan 2nd Test
The second Test of the two-match series played between Pakistan and New Zealand in Karachi ended in a draw. The match ended in a dramatic fashion as the umpires decided to stop the play due to ‘bad light’ at a time when all three results were possible. The match was halted when New Zealand were one wicket away from a series win while the hosts were just 15 runs away from a series-leveling win.
