Aamir Sohail: Sarfraz should not be rushed into all three formats captaincy
Lahore: Former test cricketer Aamir Sohail opposes Sarfraz’s immediate appointment to all three formats captaincy. On the contrary, former leg-spinner Abdul Qadir says “I agree with Imran Khan’s suggestion of appointing a single captain for all three formats.”
According to details Aamir Sohail says” I fail to understand why PCB is always in a hurry to do things quickly,” Sarfraz should not be pushed into three format captaincy immediately. “I am not against giving captaincy to wicketkeeper-batsman but let him first settle down in the short format T20.”
If he performs well he should be given further responsibilities. He said PCB should improve domestic cricket instead of appointing a foreign coach. “ The coach can only teach strategies to the players but talent comes up from the domestic level.” While replying to a question regarding Shahid Afridi he said the fitness factor needs to be looked into by the selectors before taking any decision.
Meanwhile former leg-spinner Abdul Qadir said “ In my opinion before appointing a new coach the captain should be given more authority in selection and other team matters.” PCB chairman should include former cricketers in the governing board to improve Pakistan cricket. He also appreciated the decision of appointing Sarfraz Ahmad as captain and said “ I agree to Imran Khan’s suggestion to appoint a single captain for all three formats.”
