Profile

Sarfaraz Ahmed is a right-handed wicketkeeper/batsman from Pakistan. He played five ODIs for the Pakistan Under-19 team before being called up to captain the side for the U-19 World Cup in 2006. This came after he scored back-to-back half centuries in only his third and fourth match. With Pakistan winning the World Cup, Sarfaraz was suitably drafted into domestic cricket.

Sarfaraz has had a remarkable beginning to the 2007-08 season where he racked up three fifties in his first five matches with 21 dismissals behind the stumps and is now posing a serious threat to Kamran Akmal's position as Pakistan's first-choice wicketkeeper.

He earned a call to the national team in 2007 as a cover for the injured Akmal and made his debut in the final ODI of the series against India. He did not get an opportunity to bat but he impressed everybody with his sharp keeping and livewire attitude.
