Sarfraz Ahmed shares his regret with Andile Phehlukwayo
After making a racist comment about South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo, things have turned into a nightmare for Pakistan skipper. He will miss the rest of the tour of South Africa as PCB have sent him back home.

Sarfraz’s ban will end after the second T20I of the three-match series. But the board have handed the captaincy to Shoaib Malik for all the three T20I matches and which clearly indicates that Sarfraz will not play the third T20I.

After landing from the airport, Sarfraz expressed his guilt and promised to come back strongly and as a better person.

“Whatever happened has happened.  accepted my mistake and ICC’s decision is in front of you. I will improve myself and my performance in the future and I thank my supporters for their backing.”

When asked about PCB’s decision to not recall him for the last T20I, Sarfraz said he’s okay with this decision.

“I don’t see anything in it as I was playing cricket for the last five months. I will rest and then play Pakistan Super League.”

Sarfraz’s absence didn’t effect Pakistan as the visitors clinched a dominating victory against Proteas to level the series.
