The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to remove Sarfaraz Ahmed as the captain of the national cricket team.

Top-order batsman Azhar Ali has been named as Test captain while Babar Azam has been given the charge to lead the T20 side.

“It has been a difficult decision to drop Sarfaraz Ahmed, who has performed well as a player and a leader,” he said. “But, his loss in form and confidence is visible and, in the best interest of the team, it has been decided to leave him out and provide him the opportunity to reflect and regroup himself and try to reclaim his form away from international cricket,” said PCB chairman Ehsan Mani.
