Earlier, Babar Azam was the captain of T20 and ODI while Mohammad Sarfraz was the captain of the Test team. Babar Azam has been removed from the captaincy for his poor performance in the World Cup. While the reason for Sarfraz’s removal has not been revealed yet. Reliable sources say that Sarfraz himself has stepped down from the captaincy of his own free will.

Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shan Masood were considered for the captaincy for a long time. Now, they are the new captains of the Pakistani Cricket Team. Emad Wasim was also included in the captaincy list but no decision has been made about him yet.

The reason why Shaheen Shah was replaced by Babar Azam is Shaheen’s excellent performance in the last PSL. Shaheen not only improved himself but captained Lahore Qalandars to win the final. This outstanding performance of Shaheen was recognized at the same time by the entire Pakistani cricket fans including PCB.

Shaan Masood becoming the captain instead of Sarfaraz Ahmed is not a special thing. Because the news was circulating for a long time that Sarfaraz wants to step down from the captaincy. Why they want to get off is not yet clear.

No one has been named ODI captain yet but it will be announced very soon. PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf says that changing the captains of the cricket team has been done to improve the team. It was necessary to do this because of the poor performance the team showed in World Cup 2023. It is hoped that the team led by the new captains will improve.

The decision to remove Babar Azam from the captaincy is being justified to a large extent. Cricket experts believe that not everyone can carry the burden of captaincy. Perhaps this is what happened to Babar Azam. Babar also lost his performance while focusing on captaincy. But for now, it is hoped that Babar will restore the nation’s pride by focusing on his game.
