Twitter Reacts As PCB Sack Sarfaraz Ahmed As Their Captain, Babar Azam Becomes The New Captain

Sarfaraz Ahmed is no longer the captain of Pakistan’s cricket team. The Pakistan Cricket Board has removed Sarfaraz Ahmed from captaincy from all three formats with immediate effect.

If reports are to be believed then the Head Coach of Pakistan cricket team wasn’t happy with Sarfaraz and thus he expressed his concerns with the CEO of Pakistan Cricket Board, Wasim Khan.

Babar Azam, who is one of the talented batsmen of Pakistan cricket team will now take over the role in the shortest formats, while on the other hand, veteran batsmen Azhar Ali will take over the captaincy of red-ball cricket.

It has been an honor to lead Pakistan at the highest level. I want to thank all my colleagues, coaches, and selectors who have helped me in this journey. 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.”
