The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to extend Babar Azam’s tenure as captain of the T20 team by one year, according to sources.
As reported by Cricket Pakistan, this means Azam will continue leading the side until 2021, which is when the T20 World Cup will be held in India.
His initial appointment as T20 captain was until the T20 World Cup, which was supposed to be held in Australia this year, but was postponed until October 2021 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In addition to being T20 captain, Azam is also in charge of Pakistan’s ODI team.
Furthermore, he is currently captaining Central Punjab in the National T20 Cup.
In the five matches he has played, the 26-year-old has scored 275 runs, which includes three fifties, at an average of 91.66 and a strike-rate of 153.63.
