Sarfraz Ahmed

Chief selector, Inzamam Ul Haq has communicated his advice to PCB boss Shaharyar Khan to hand over the ODI captaincy to Sarfraz Ahmed before West Indies tour.

“Inzamam has conveyed to PCB Chairman and other high officials about some radical changes needed in the national team set-up following the disastrous tour to New Zealand and Australia,” a source from PCB revealed.

The source also disclosed that the board will advise the veteran duo of Misbah Ul Haq and Younis Khan to hang their boots after their tour to Caribbean.

“It has been decided in principle that Misbah would be advised to announce his retirement after the Test series against the West Indies as captain while Younis would also be advised to call it a day after he completes 10,000 Test runs in the three Tests in the West Indies,” the source said.

Azhar Ali is likely to lead the side in the longest format of the game, whereas, Sarfraz will captain the team in the limited overs formats.
