Pakistan yet to decider their captain for upcoming World Cup

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) gives a shocking statement as they stated that they are yet to announce their captain for the upcoming World Cup.

Pakistan lead 1-0
After the controversial incident which led to a four-match suspension for the Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, things have turned very chaotic. PCB revealed that they never revealed the length of Sarfraz’s tenure as captain. The board also stated that they will be naming captains on a ‘series-to-series basis.’

A PCB spokesperson told reporters

“We never revealed the length of Sarfraz Ahmed’s tenure. e never said whether he was going to stay [as a captain] for one or two years. The PCB appoints captain on a series to series basis, and, as such, appointment for the series post PSL will be made in due course.”

It is quite debatable that if the board took a u-turn or not. And Sarfraz’s act in the second ODI against South Africa might have forced Pakistan to think about the leadership once again for the World Cup.

After taking over last year, PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said Sarfraz will remain captain till the 2019 World Cup. But, as per the board’s policy, there are now doubts over who will lead in the ODI series against Australia in March/April.

Shoaib Malik is currently leading the Pakistan team. He led the team to a convincing victory against South Africa to level the series 2-2. But the hosts fought back well to win the series decider. Shoaib will also lead the team in the three match T20I series.
