Sarfraz Out: Azhar Ali Takes Over In Tests, Babar Azam In T20Is

Azhar Ali has been appointed national cricket team captain for Pakistan’s World Test Championship matches in the 2019-20 season while Babar Azam has been named captain of the no.1 ranked T20I side until next year’s ICC T20 World Cup Australia 2020.

The appointments were confirmed after Sarfaraz Ahmed was left out of both formats due to the drop in his overall form during the past few series. Seventh-ranked Pakistan would play fifth-ranked Australia in two Tests in Brisbane (November 21-25) and Adelaide (November 29- December 3(d/n)) before hosting Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for two Tests apiece.

Pakistan team has also schedule to play three T20Is each against Australia (November 3, 5 and 8) and Bangladesh before the curtain falls on their international domestic season in early February 2020.
