LAHORE (Reuters) – Pakistan have sacked Sarfaraz Ahmed as their captain across all formats, naming Azhar Ali on Friday as the new test skipper and putting Babar Azam in charge of the Twenty20 squad.

It has been a difficult decision to drop Sarfaraz Ahmed, who has performed well as a player and a leader,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani said in a statement.

Azhar test captain

Azhar, who quit as Pakistan ODI captain in 2017, will begin his stint with a two-test series in Australia later this year before Pakistan host Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for two tests apiece.

“These are exciting times in Pakistan cricket with a new team management. As a captain, I feel comfortable that there will be a number of knowledgeable people in the hut who I can rely for advice and guidance.“I am not only targeting wins, but also aim to provide opportunities to players to grow in stature and express themselves so that Pakistan cricket can resume its journey to the top.”
