Former skipper and member of Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) special committee, Wasim Akram has spoken against the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) policy of selecting captains on a ‘series-to-series basis’ as revealed by the board’s spokesperson.
Speaking to reporters following a Pakistan Super League event in Karachi, Akram said, “Nowhere in the world does such a policy exist … I’m very [much] against it … it makes no sense,” he said. “The World Cup is around the corner. We don’t have the time to change the captain. The boys are set … they should know who their leader is (going into another series) instead of them [the board] changing the leader after every series.” “I think it’s very wrong for Pakistan and Pakistani cricket,” he continued.
Akram remarked that “there is no communication between the PCB and media right now because it is not a good time to talk about changing captains. If I ask the cricket committee, they too will [support] retaining Sarfraz Ahmed”. “Ehsan Mani is new to PCB, he’ll take some time to understand the scenario,” he said while commenting on the PCB chairman’s reaction to Sarfraz’s suspension.
