Pakistan Fans Blast PCB For Replacing Sarfaraz Ahmed With Azhar Ali As Test Captain


Pakistan had suffered a humiliating whitewash at home against Sri Lanka. But despite that loss, Sarfaraz Ahmed‘s departure will come as a shock to many. The wicketkeeper-batsman had led Pakistan to the number one spot in T20I rankings, winning 11 series along the way.

Sarfaraz Ahmed also topped the batting chart with 67 runs across the series.

Sarfaraz Ahmed congratulated both new captains.

“My good wishes are with Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and the Pakistan cricket team, and I hope they will continue to grow stronger and stronger,” said Sarfaraz Ahmed.

Azhar previously skippered Pakistan in one Test and 31 one-day internationals between 2015 and 2017, losing 18 and winning 21 with one no result.

“There is no bigger honour than to captain the Pakistan national cricket team in the pinnacle format of the game. I feel humbled, excited and privileged, and with the support of the team, look forward to justifying the faith that has been entrusted upon me for the World Test Championship,” Pakistan’s new Test captain said in a PCB press release.

“Sarfaraz Ahmed has done an excellent job in transforming raw talent into experienced players and I now look forward to inspiring those skillful players in our endeavours to collectively achieve our World Test Championship objectives and beyond.

“These are exciting times in Pakistan cricket with a new team management. As a captain, I feel comfortable that there will be number of knowledgeable people in the hut who I can rely for advice and guidance,” Azhar added.
