Sarfaraz Ahmed has been sacked as Pakistan captain in Tests and T20Is, the country’s cricket board announced on Friday. It remains to be seen who will lead the side in ODIs, with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) saying that a decision will be “finalised in due course”. Pakistan’s next ODI assignment is not until July next year, a three-match series against the Netherlands in Amstelveen. The PCB said Azhar Ali will lead the side in Test matches, while Babar Azam has been appointed the new T20I captain. Not only has Sarfaraz lost his captaincy, but due to the “drop in his overall form”, he has been dropped from both the Test and T20I sides.
