The Possibility Of Making Sarfaraz Ahmed The Captain Instead Of Babar Azam?

According to media reports, the possibility of making Sarfaraz Ahmed the captain of the Test team in place of Babar Azam is under consideration.

PCB Management Committee Chairman Zaka Ashraf met Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shah Nawaz Dhani at Pakistan Cricket Headquarters Lahore on Friday.

Chairman PCB congratulated Karachi Whites for winning the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2023-24 and while appreciating the leadership qualities of their captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, also appreciated the performance of fast bowler Shah Nawaz Dhani.

Zaka Ashraf also discussed with the two players regarding the improvement of domestic cricket.

According to media reports, Sarfraz Ahmed is likely to replace Babar Azam as the captain of the Test team for the tour of Australia, while possible changes in the team management are also under consideration.

According to reports, the future of Babar Azam’s captaincy depends on the performance of the national team in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, while Pakistan will have to win all the remaining matches to qualify for the semi-finals.

It should be noted that Sarfraz Ahmed is in extraordinary form these days, while under his leadership Karachi Region Whites have won the title of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

Sarfraz Ahmed was the second-highest run-scorer during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy with 697 runs, earning him the Man of the Tournament award, while he also scored 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries in the event.

It should be noted that the three-match Test series against Australia is scheduled after the World Cup, the first of which will be played on December 14 in Perth.

It may be noted that under the leadership of Babar Azam, Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka 2-0 in the Test series in July, which was Pakistan’s first series in the new World Test Championship cycle during 2023-25.
