Sarfaraz Ahmed has been sacked as Pakistan captain in Tests and T20Is. Azhar Ali and Babar Azam will lead in Whites and T20Is respectively. The governing body of Pakistan cricket has not announced the name of the ODI skipper. Pakistan’s next ODI assignment is not until July next year. Sarfaraz has been dropped from the Test and T20 teams as well.
Azhar is all set to lead Pakistan in the traditional format of the game.
“There is no bigger honour than to captain the Pakistan national cricket team in the pinnacle format of the game”.
Babar Azam, who is the number one batsman in T20Is, is confident to carry forward the good work done by Sarfaraz.
“It is my responsibility to take forward Sarfaraz Ahmed’s accomplishments in T20Is so that we remain a consistent, attractive and powerful side,” said Azam.
