Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed Wicket-keeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed as the new skipper of Pakistan One Day Internationals (ODIs) team. PCB Chairman Mr. Shahryar Khan announced Sarfraz’s appointment. There are also reports that Azhar Ali may lead Pak team in the test matches after Misbah-Ul-Haq’s exit from the top post.
In the recent Pakistan’s tour of Australia, green team faced 4-1 lose in the ODI series. Hence there were speculations that Sarfraz would take over captaincy and those reports proved right today when wicket-keeper batsman was hand over the captaincy.
Current Pakistan test team skipper and veteran cricketer Misbah Ul Haq told PCB that he would need time to take call about his continuity with national side.
Karachi born Sarfraz has played 67 ODIs till date for national team in which scored 1498 runs at an average 34.83.
