Pak Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed Received Hero’s Welcome in Karachi

Packed streets and big hearts.

1 min read

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was given a rapturous welcome in Karachi on his return from London with the Champions Trophy.

From the moment he exited the Karachi International Airport, hundreds of fans surrounded him and flooded him with flower bouquets as he was taken home in official protocol provided by the Sindh government.


The scenes were similar to those witnessed when Pakistani players returned home after winning the 1992 World Cup.

But whereas 25 years ago the entire Pakistan team had returned home together, Sarfraz and pacer Rumaan Raees landed in Karachi while some of the other players reached their home destination.

Some of the players have also stayed back on vacations.

Sarfraz had to come out on the balcony of his home holding high the trophy as hundreds of fans lined up in the streets outside and near his residence chanted Pakistan Zindabad as patriotic songs were also played.
