Muhammad Amir Picks 3 Captains for Pakistan Cricket Team

Former Pakistani fast bowler, Mohammad Amir, recently shared his views on potential leaders for the national team in all three formats.

In a recent World Cup special show on a local media channel, Amir suggested a change in captaincy, offering three alternatives to replace the current skipper, Babar Azam.

Amir recommended Imad Wasim for the T20I format, considering the upcoming T20 World Cup and series against Australia. For ODIs, he proposed Shan Masood as a potential leader.

In Test cricket, Amir advocated for the inclusion of Sarfaraz Ahmed in a leadership role, suggesting him as captain with a youngster as vice-captain.

After a disappointing performance in the 2023 World Cup, questions about leadership positions have arisen for Babar Azam and the team management, including head coach Grant Bradburn and team director Mickey Arthur.

Discussions within the board on this matter started even before the match against England. The chances of Babar Azam continuing as the captain in white-ball cricket seem uncertain. However, there are suggestions for him to lead during the Test series against Australia.

A decision is expected in the coming days, and there are unconfirmed reports that Babar Azam may consider resigning as captain.
