Worst defeat in T20 World Cup 2024: Babar’s decision not to captain the Test format

Dr. Akhtar Gulfam

Lahore: After the worst defeat in the T20 World Cup 2024, it has been decided not to give the captaincy of the Test format to Babar Azam.

After his poor performance as captain in the ICCT 20 World Cup 2024, Zarai told Daily Nawa-i-waqt LondonWaqt, Daily Dawn London, and Dawn TV that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked Babar Azam to skipper the 2-Test home series against Bangladesh. Decided to keep away.

It should be remembered that Chairman PCB Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi, on the recommendation of the 7-member selection committee, replaced Shaheen Afridi with Babar Azam as the captain of the T20 team and gave him the leadership of the white ball team until the Champions Trophy.

Officials were expected to give Babar Azam the lead in the two-Test series against Bangladesh, which is part of the ICC Test Championship, but after a poor performance in the World Cup, the board has now chosen Babar to lead the Test team. Instead of considering Azam’s name, they have decided to trust Shan Masood.

It should be noted that former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie will be the coach of the Pakistan team in the Test format.
