In the latest video which is doing rounds on social media, Former Pakistan skipper Sarafarz Khan can be seen getting clean bowled by his own son in a gully cricket match in Pakistan. Khan, who led the Pakistan side to win the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017, was playing gully cricket with his son in Pakistan. In the video, junior Sarafar Khan bowled a perfect yorker to stun his father as the ball sneaked past Sarfaraz’s bat.
After getting clean bowled by his son, Khan was left smiling as he was surrounded by local fans in Pakistan. Although Abdullah, Sarafarz Ahmed’s son, is passionate about playing cricket and trains very hard in the local academy, Sarafarz had earlier confessed that he does not wish his son to play cricket citing growing politics in the game in his own country.

“He is passionate about the game, but I don’t want him to become a cricketer. Actually, being a cricketer, I suffered many things that I don’t want Abdullah to face,” he said. The Pakistan cricketer revealed that his son wished to be a fast bowler and plays a lot of cricket with local boys.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz has been missing the competitive cricket ever since Mohammad Rizwan emerged as a prominent wicket-keeper batter in the team. Since then, Khan has only got rare opportunities and last played a T20I in November on the Bangladesh tour in 2021 and an ODI in April 2021 against South Africa.
