Recently current Pakistan Test captain Azhar Ali alongside Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez. They went to meet PM Imran Khan regarding domestic structure.
Imran Khan didn’t agree with their thoughts about the revival of department cricket. In the end, Imran Khan expressed his thoughts with the PCB chairman to remove Azhar Ali as the Test captain.
Prime Minister is not happy with the performance of Azhar Ali as a captain. And also questioned how did you lose the first test match against England?
Now rumors are coming that Babar Azam could be considered as the next Pakistan Test captain.
Azhar Ali was already tried and tested in the ODI format and he fails as a captain. And now he is also not doing well as a captain.
Babar to be given the charge of the test team will be a huge responsibility and pressure on him. He already is the captain of the T20 and ODI teams.
Currently, Babar already has a lot of pressure on him as a captain. Making him the captain of the red ball team might be dangerous as it will add extra pressure on his performance as well.
Pakistan Cricket Board should stick with Babar Azam as the captain of white ball cricket and Azhar Ali as the Pakistan Test captain.
Babar Azam is still learning the art of captaincy and needs some time to adapt the pressure.
Azhar Ali’s performance as a Test captain is very low and he needs to improve in the next matches and if not he might be in danger to get sacked as a captain.
Azhar Ali was made Pakistan Test captain till the end of the Test Championship in 2021.
