Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali has stepped down as Pakistan’s ODI captain.
After Pakistan’s terrible 4-1 loss to Australia in their recent tour, Azhar Ali chose it best to quit as the captain.
It has been decided that the new ODI captain for Pakistan will be wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed.
PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said,
Azhar agreed to relinquish his captaincy as he believed that his batting is being effected due to extra burden of leadership. I respect his decision and he will continue to play as batsman in one day team, but now we all decided that Sarfraz will be handed the ODI captaincy.
Pakistan have been having a bad time in ODIs under Azhar’s captaincy and the board was planning to ax him but Azhar beat them to the clock.
