Pakistan Cricket Board has made a big change in the team. Actually, PCB has removed Sarfraz Ahmed from the captaincy. The board has taken the captaincy from Sarfraz and handed it to different players in different formats.
Tests and T20 captains made separately
This major change has been made with the arrival of Misbah ul Haq, the new coach of the Pakistan team. The PCB has handed over the top-order batsman Azhar Ali to the Test team and the team’s opener Babar Azam as captain of the T20 format. However, the captain is yet to be selected in the ODI format. Let us tell you that this change has been made after the embarrassing defeat Pakistan recently got in their home country. Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan 3–0 in the T20 series.
The captain of ODI will also be selected by July 2020!
Apart from this, keeping in mind the upcoming tour against Australia, a new captain has been announced for the Philahal Test and T20 format. It is believed that after this tour, a new captain can be selected for the ODI format as well. Another reason why the ODI team is not elected captain is that the Pakistan cricket team does not have to play any ODI before July 2020. In July next year, Pakistan will play a three-match ODI series against the Netherlands.
