Former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed said the current hot weather is ideal for anyone to lose weight. 

Speaking to a local YouTube channel, Sarfaraz, who lost massive weight after he was dropped from the team in 2019, said running for one week in hot weather would work for people with heavy weight. 

"This hot weather is ideal for anyone who wants to lose weight. Just go out and run for two weeks, you will definitely lose your weight," he suggested. 

Sarfaraz lost his captaincy after Pakistan were whitewashed in the T20I series against Sri Lanka in Lahore in 2019. He was also dropped from the team in the same year. 

While sharing his current daily routine, Sarfaraz said he is playing club cricket. "I am practicing and playing club cricket whenever I get time," he shared. 

In reply to a question, Sarfaraz asked youngsters to focus on playing matches more than just practicing in the nets. 

"Youngsters nowadays have good facilities to play cricket. They need to groom themselves by playing matches. They should take part in club cricket, and night cricket to become more efficient. Only by playing more matches, they will get stronger," he concluded. 

Sarfaraz is one of the successful captains of Pakistan. He remained Pakistan team captain from 2016 to 2019. Under his captaincy, Pakistan won its first-ever Champions Trophy in 2017. Also, he led Pakistan to record 11 consecutive T20I series wins.

Moreover, the wicketkeeper batter also captained Pakistan in ICC World Cup 2019. In the same year, he was removed from captaincy after Pakistan were whitewashed in T20I series at the hands of Sri Lanka.

Thereafter, he remained a part of Pakistan's Test squad but had to wait for four years to return to the playing XI. Earlier this year, Sarfaraz made his Test comeback during the home series against New Zealand. He scored a match-saving century to register a strong comeback.
