KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — The 35-year-old Sarfaraz also struck half-centuries in his three previous innings after being recalled for the series following a near-four year absence. He was named man of the series.
“Dream comeback for him,” captain Babar Azam said. “Sarfaraz did not let the fire die within him in four years. His work ethic was always there and he continued to wait for his turn.”
Last pair Naseem and Abrar faced Bracewell and fellow spinner Ish Sodhi (2-59), with all 10 fielders around the batter, but survived the nail-biting moments.
