PCB considering separate captains for Tests and ODIs

In the aftermath of Pakistan’s failure to get into the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup for the second time running, there are reports that the team management is expected to undergo a massive change.

According to the latest reports, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) could appoint separate captains and head coaches for Test and limited-overs cricket. A proposal to split the captaincy and coaching for the different formats would be up for discussion when the cricket committee is scheduled to meet later this month.

"Since Pakistan has to play eight Tests of the World Test Championship against Sri Lanka, Australia, Bangladesh and England before the T20 World Cup in Australia next year, the PCB is pretty concerned about how to improve performance of the team in Tests," the source said.

Pakistan is placed at the seventh position in the Test rankings after having lost home series to Sri Lanka and New Zealand before being outclassed in South Africa. On the other hand, Pakistan is at the sixth position in the 50-over format while it remains the top-ranked T20I side.
