Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen believes that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should continue investing their faith in Sarfraz Ahmed and allow him to captain the country at the 2019 World Cup.
There has been a lot of debate about Sarfraz’s captaincy as of late, with some saying a change in leadership is needed, while others have expressed their support for the 30-year-old.
Pietersen is one of the people who feels that Sarfraz is the best candidate to lead Pakistan at the World Cup, which will be held in England and Wales.
“All the players like him (Sarfraz) and he has got a very good cricket brain,” Pietersen was quoted as saying by thenews.com.pk. “The World Cup is only 12 months away so I think that it will be a very clever decision for the Pakistani board to say to Sarfraz that you are leading our team to the World Cup.
“If you replace your captain after a captain does as well as Sarfraz does, the new person that comes in thinks that he can be replaced too before the next world cup. From my experience, you back your captain…because if you back your captain your players feel safe too.”
