Sarfraz Ahmed has left Australia following his mother’s illness. The wicketkeeper batsman is one of the most accomplished Pakistani batsmen across formats and his absence will certainly hurt Pakistan a lot. Azhar Ali, the captain of the team, has confirmed the news.
"We`ll definitely miss Sarfraz. Hopefully, he can rejoin the team but, as for right now, he`s not here," Azhar told reporters.
Mohammad Rizwan will take the gloves for the first day-night match against Australia.
