Azhar Ali expected to take over Pakistan Test side

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is expected to take a decision regarding the future of skipper Sarfraz Ahmed before the side’s next series against Sri Lanka. It is being speculated that the wicket-keeper batsman might not be retained as captain of all formats any more as his individual performance has gone down during his tenure.

According to several media reports, former ODI skipper Azhar Ali is expected to replace Sarfraz as the new captain of the Test side as he not only has the experience of leading the side but is also a consistent player of Test format.

However, it is being said that Azhar would be given the responsibility for a short period of time since he himself is nearing the end of his career and a young captain would be groomed under his wings till then.
