Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal believes that Sarfraz Ahmed should be stripped of the captaincy.
Akmal’s comments come after Pakistan failed to qualify for the World Cup semi-finals.
As a result of that, there has been a lot of speculation about Sarfraz’s future, with some reports indicating that he will be stripped of the captaincy entirely, while others state that he will lead Pakistan in fewer formats.
“I guess everybody including the PCB has witnessed Sarfraz’s track record,” Akmal told The Nation. “I can’t comment whether he should stay as captain or not, as it is purely the PCB’s [move], but I think the time is [right that] the PCB should come up with something different and something solid if they want to save Pakistan cricket.
“If situation remains the same and the PCB keeps on hoping for miracles, then the future of Pakistan cricket seems very bleak.
“I hope Prime Minister Imran Khan will bring positive changes in the team management and national team and also provide justice to long suffering players and fans. I am sure he will act without any further delay.”
