There has been a lot of speculation over Sarfaraz Ahmed’s future as Pakistan’s captain, but reports suggest that he will step down as leader of the Test team.

According to cricketpakistan.com.pk, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani will ask Sarfaraz to step down as Test captain when they meet next week to discuss a host of important issues.

Rumours about Sarfaraz’s future as captain began surfacing after Pakistan narrowly missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals at this year’s World Cup.

However, the PCB opted to retain him as captain for the recent limited overs series against Sri Lanka, which was held in Pakistan.

While Sarfaraz is expected to give up the Test captaincy, he will likely continue on leading the ODI and Twenty20 squads.

  1. In my opinion as a keen follower of cricket, Sarfraz has failed to perform in all formats for Pakistan and hence does not deserve to remain as captain. In fact his inclusion as a player is also questionable.

    • I think he will always be seen as the top choice keeper even though I feel Rizwan is a better option. Maybe he should step down as captain as it could help him regain his form with the bat.
