PCB has appointed Babar Azam as the skipper of Pakistan’s t20 national cricket team until 20 world cup in Australia. The Pakistani board of directors sacked Sararaz Ahmed from the three formats and appointed right-handed batsman Babar Azam as captain for the T20I format, while Azhar Ali was given the responsibility of test captain.
Recently Pakistan lost home series to Sri Lanka as the visitors beat Men in Green by 3-0, which was Sri Lanka’s first clean sweep in twenty20 cricket. The rumors were about the role and there was a strong possibility of sacking Ahmed as he failed as a drummer and leader. Pakistan failed to advance to the semi-finals of the 2019 ICC World Cup under Ahmed.
Although Men in Green won 11 t20 series under his captaincy and under his leadership, Pak did not succeed. 1 T20I classification. Sarfaraz was the captain of the winning team of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which is a notable victory in his career. But in recent months, he has failed to play as a player, nor has he been able to win any matches.
Pakistan will host Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies and two qualifiers from the first leg of the 2020 World Cup. Men in Green will face Australia in their opener on 24 October. Pakistan won the only edition of the t20 world cup in 2009.
