Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed received a warm welcome when he returned home after the two-match Test series against New Zealand.
After the second Test ended in a draw, Sarfaraz Ahmed reached his home in the Buffer Zone, Karachi, to a warm welcome from his family, fans and relatives.
The youngsters shouted loud slogans and clapped their hands to pay tribute to Sarfaraz Ahmed, who also waved his hands in response to his fans.
The Karachi-born cricketer was awarded player of the series for his outstanding performance in the Test series as he hit three fifties and a match-saving century.
The 35-year-old scored 335 runs in four innings at an average of 83.75, with a top score of 118 runs that saved the second Test for the hosts.
With this performance, the right-handed batsman now has the highest average among Pakistani wicket-keeper batsmen in the history of Test cricket.
In the opening Test, the Karachi-born batsman surpassed Kamran Akmal in the list of Pakistani wicketkeeper-batsmen with the most runs in red-ball cricket. The right-handed batsman has now scored 2,992 Test runs at an average of 38.85 in fifty games, including four centuries and 21 half-centuries.
It is worth noting that the champion captain returned to the playing XI after almost four years of absence, with his last match in 2019.
