Shahid Afridi Reacts to Babar Azam’s Appointment as Pakistan’s White-Ball Cricket Captain

Pakistan cricket captaincy change

Former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi has made headlines with his comments on the recent appointment of Babar Azam as the white-ball skipper. The 29-year-old cricketer has been reinstated as captain, taking over from Shaheen Afridi, who led the team during a single T20I series against New Zealand in January 2023.

Concerns were raised about Shaheen Afridi’s leadership abilities following the team’s disappointing performance in the five-match series, which ended in a 1-4 loss. Afridi expressed his surprise at the decision made by the experienced members of the selection committee, suggesting that Mohammad Rizwan would have been a more suitable choice if change was deemed necessary.
