So that, he is able to groom and build a winning combination of players for the mega event in England.” Moin said.
Moin added that he had hardly seen Pakistan making good comebacks. Moin, who was part of the 1992 World Cup-winning team as wicketkeeper-batsman. He observed that Sarfraz had tremendous fighting spirit for the side.
“I have seldom seen our team making so many good comebacks that they have done in all formats of the game in recent times.” Moin Khan added.
Moin maintained that he was happy to see Pakistan winning the Champions Trophy 2017 in England in the last year.
Moreover, after that, they won the final against Australia in the tri-series in Zimbabwe last month.
