Sarfaraz Ahmed has been retained as Pakistan captain while Babar Azam has been named as the vice-captain for the home series against Sri Lanka, a press release by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said.
According to the press release, “the announcement was made after the PCB Chairman, Ehsan Mani, confirmed the recommendations made by Misbahul Haq, the head coach and chief selector, and the PCB Cricket Committee.”
“I feel humbled and honoured to have been awarded an extension to my captaincy term. I have enjoyed captaining the Pakistan cricket team and look forward to improve my leadership qualities under the new set-up of Misbahul Haq who also has a proven record as captain,” the PCB handout quoted Sarfaraz as saying.
“I have played most of my cricket under Misbah and we know each other pretty well. I think we will make a good combination, which will contribute to improved performances of the side across all formats,” added the skipper.
