Former Captain of Pakistan Cricket team Shahid Afridi has opposed Pakistan Cricket Board’s decision to appoint middle order batsman Babar Azam as the captain of national cricket team. Shahid Afridi congratulated Azhar Ali on his new appointment.
Shahid Afridi stated that Shoaib Malik was the right choice for leading the team in the shorter format of the game. He added that since Malik is more experienced and has played in leagues all over the world. So it would have been better to appoint Malik as the captain until T20 World Cup.
The former Skipper advised Sarfaraz Ahmed to focus on his cricket and try to make comeback through performance in domestic cricket. He added that although he has always supported Babar Azam but he feels that Babar isn’t the right choice for T20 captaincy.
