Babar likely to be made Pakistan captain again

By our correspondent
LAHORE: Babar Azam is likely to be given captaincy band of the Pakistan team again as national selectors have decided that he will be the best choice after the authorities are not satisfied with the leadership qualities of Shaheen Afridi.
According to source the seven-member selection committee has sent the name of Babar for captaincy to the PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi.
Sources said that Naqvi also on Thursday held meeting with the PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi who is also a federal interior minister.
Babar tepped down as the skipper of the national side from all formats, ending his years-long stint in the leading position, in November following a humiliating World Cup campaign.
The former skipper was under fire for several months after Pakistan failed to perform in the Asia Cup and continued the same momentum into the World Cup — where they crashed out before reaching the semis.
Azam was previously appointed white-ball captain in 2019 and as Test skipper in 2020, but the Green Shirts have not won any ICC or Asia Cup titles under his leadership.
