Pakistan new captain: Amidst the ODI World Cup 2023, such a storm has arisen in Pakistan, which no one would have thought of. First, the Pakistan team was out of the semi-finals of the ODI World Cup and after this, Babar Azam, who was the captain shortly before now, announced his resignation from the captaincy from all three formats. This decision was taken suddenly and we were not even aware of it. It is said that Babar Azam had also gone to meet PCB Chief Zaka Ashraf before resigning. Meanwhile, a new captain has been announced by Pakistan. It is learned that now Pakistan will have two captains. That means different captain in T20 and different in Test. However, the captain has not been announced for the ODI yet.

Shaheen Shah Afridi gets the command of T20 and Shan Masood of Test.

Shortly before now, PCB had announced that the team will now be captained by Shan Masood in Tests and the new captain in T20 will be fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi. This will be the first time that Shan Masood and Shaheen Shah Afridi will take command of their team. Shaheen Shah Afridi’s team Lahore Qalandars had won the title twice in a row in PSL. Shaheen’s team had defeated Multan Sultan under the captaincy of Mohammad Rizwan twice in the finals in a row. Shan Masood also plays for Multan Sultans in the PSL. It is believed that Pakistan does not have to play One Day International for about a year, hence its captain has not been announced.

Pakistani team will play test series against Australia in December

Pakistan’s first test under the captaincy of Shan Masood will be in the Test series against Australia. A three-Test series will be played between Pakistan and Australia from December 14. After this the team will be seen playing T20 matches. It is difficult to say whether Babar Azam has given up the captaincy of his own free will or he has been pressured to give up the command. But it is certain that the team has not performed as well as was expected in this year’s World Cup. At the same time, Babar Azam has also made it clear that he will continue to play for the team as a batsman. Will also support the captain. As captain, Babar Azam was not successful in winning even a single ICC or ACC title for his team.
