After Sarfraz Ahmed was fired from the Test and T20I captaincy of the Pakistani cricket team, the cricket world reacted abruptly. There were many mixed opinions that showed up on social media and news channels. A few were in favor of this decision, while others strongly criticized it.
Harsha Bhogle, the veteran Indian cricketer talked about the dismissal of Sarfraz Ahmed from the captaincy role. “Maybe captaincy wasn't his cup of tea but I always rated Sarfaraz as a cricketer. Huge pressure now on Babar Azam, already the best batsman, now captain too in T20I cricket”, Harsha added.
Sarfraz Ahmed captained Pakistan in 13 T20I series' out of which Pakistan won 11 series' with a win percentage of almost 78.
This decision has raised many questions which also include the effect on the batting performance of Babar Azam with a simultaneous job of leadership.
