PCB to Sack Babar Azam after the Series vs New Zealand- Hints New Chairman

Najam Sethi recently took over the post of Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman after the sacking of Ramiz Raja. Since then, he has made some striking decisions which have caused a ruckus in the Pakistani cricketing world. The latest report is that PCB is looking for a new captain in the Test format. Najam Sethi has shown his interest in removing the current captain Babar Azam and finding a new option that can guarantee Pakistan’s wins in the game’s longest format.

Why is PCB Sacking Babar Azam as Captain from the Tests?

Najam Sethi said in his first press conference that he wants to create a side that can give the opponents tough competition. He removed the entire selection committee of Pakistan after taking over the Chairman position. He has introduced a temporary selection committee which has Shahid Afridi as its lead. After the introduction of this committee, Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former captain of Pakistan, was finally able to play his 50th Test match. He was given a chance to play in the Tests after 4 long years.

Babar Azam is failing as a captain in the game’s longest format. He has lost the last four Test matches at home, and the England cricket team whitewashed his team. All of these failures of Babar Azam as captain have PCB rethinking his stature as captain in the game’s longest format. A source from PCB has talked to Cricreads about the future of the Pakistan cricket team in the longest format.

The source revealed, “Najam Sethi is a strict administrator. He is looking to rebuild the Pakistani team in the longest format of the game. He is not going to interfere with the ODI team as the World Cup is quite near, but he will surely take action on the failures of the Pakistani cricket team in Test cricket. You can soon hear the news about Babar Azam’s end of captaincy in Tests.”

Who do you think will captain the Pakistan cricket team in the Tests if PCB goes forward with its thinking of removing Babar Azam as captain in Tests?
