Ex-Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan is concerned that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made a huge mistake in appointing Babar Azam as Twenty20 captain and Azhar Ali as Test skipper.

Azam and Azhar replaced Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain in the respective formats.

Moin pointed out that Azam doesn’t have enough experience to be leading the Twenty20 team, while Azhar was ODI captain in the past before quitting in February 2017. It should also be noted that he has only led Pakistan in one Test to date.

Despite his concerns, Moin remained tight-lipped on how Pakistan would fare under Azam and Azhar.

“Giving Babar Azam and Azhar Ali the captaincy in T20s and Tests, respectively, is another questionable decision because its goes against the policy Misbah has been reiterating in press conferences,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “We wanted to groom Babar as a captain for the future, by making him vice-captain for Sri Lanka series, but we gave him the authority after just one series.

“On the other hand, despite stating that we were building the team for the future, we gave Azhar the captaincy in Test cricket, bearing in mind the fact that he had stepped down from the [ODI] role a few years back.”

  1. It was very wise decision to sack Sarfraz as Captain. He was not worth enough to be a Captain. But appointing Babar Azam as Captain is another messy bullshit decision. Babar is good batsman but but he don’t have capability to be Captain. He is illitrate. captain must have a presenting profile. Misbah is wrongly appointed whatsoever he is for. Another bad decision . He is silly camel. Nothing more. Time will teach PCB soon.
