A cricketer, who does programmes with us, advised me that Rizwan stated, “foremost Sarfaraz ko kabhi aane nahi dunga (I will not let Sarfaraz return to Pakistan staff). That’s as a result of when Sarfaraz was there, he did not let Rizwan play. This is what I’ve heard. I could be mistaken,” Bakht stated throughout an interplay on Geo News.
