Pakistan’s captain in all three formats of the game, Sarfraz Ahmed stated that statements regarding the captaincy create uncertainty in the dressing room.
“Players who are not performing well do not get affected by these comments, whereas the atmosphere becomes such that it starts to affect the team,” Sarfraz said while talking to ARY News. “The doubts that are not even there come in the equation.”
Sarfraz believes that the captaincy debate influences everyone, the one leading the side as well as other players in the squad.
Earlier the newly appointed head of cricket committee, Mohsin Khan talked about removing Sarfraz Ahmed from the Test captaincy, whereas, Ehsan Mani also said that they have not decided to persist with him in the World Cup.
Whereas, Pakistan’s former skipper, Misbah Ul Haq and the member of cricket committee supported him to lead the team in the World Cup 2019 because of his consistent performances and it has got too late to make any change.
“Sarfraz is leading the side from the front and one bad performance doesn’t mean that you start talking about replacing him,” he said.
“World cup is just six months away and this is not an ideal time to bring any change in the side,” he said.
