Against the expectations, Pakistan suffered a humiliating defeat against a young team of Sri Lanka at their home under the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed. Including his struggles in the post Champions Trophy 2017 era into the equation, the wicket-keeper batsman was finding himself in a troublesome position.
A series of disappointing shows eventually caused his axing as Pakistan appointed new skippers in the form of batters Babar Azam (for T20Is) and Azhar Ali (for Tests). Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) adopted a new domestic mechanism to improve cricket in the country.
All this was recently criticized by former Pakistan captain Moin Khan who was also frustrated with the decision of removing Sarfaraz Ahmed from the national captaincy framework. The Rawalpindi born, while discussing the matters, questioned PCB’s policy towards the skippers.
He added that we talk about replicating the Australian system to improve the quality of the domestic cricket, but never focused towards empowering the captains – a thing he considers key to success. Moreover, he backed the Karachi born player to make a comeback after scoring big in the domestic circuit.
