Pakistan batsman Babar Azam is likely to be named ODI captain and vice-captain of the Test team, according to sources.
The speculation, as reported by Geo News, comes after Azam replaced Sarfaraz Ahmed as Pakistan’s Twenty20 captain.
Azam, who has been Pakistan’s most consistent batsman as of late, does have experience captaining teams as he led the country’s Under-19 squad during the 2012 Under-19 World Cup.
He is also captaining Central Punjab in the National T20 Cup.
Meanwhile, the new vice-captains of the Test and Twenty20 teams will be announced on Monday when the squads are confirmed for the upcoming tour of Australia, which will consist of three Twenty20 Internationals from November 3 to 8, and two Tests from November 21 to December 3.
However, reports suggest that wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan is likely to be named vice-captain of the Twenty20 side.
