“Kami was included in the team earlier this year as well and if I was insecure why would have I included him in the squad,” Sarfraz stated.

Talking to the media in Karachi, Sarfraz termed the NZ tour as “tough one” as it will be in different playing conditions.

Referring towards the Pakistan’s victory in ODI and T20 series against Sri Lanka last month, Sarfraz said his team played well against Sri Lanka, and now they are looking forward to continue the momentum.

“We played well in ODIs and T20Is against Sri Lanka and I am looking forward to continue the momentum,” the wicket-keeper batsman added.

Commenting on Fawad Alam’s performance, Sarfraz said he is hopeful that Fawad Alam will be rewarded for his performance in first class cricket.

“I hope Fawad will soon get a chance and perform for Pakistan,” said Sarfraz.

Pakistan will visit New Zealand next month to play a series of five ODIs starting from January 6, followed by a series of three T20Is starting from January 22.
