“I do not agree that change in captaincy will bring any significant progress. Is there a guarantee that a new skipper will result in improved showing by the team? Instead of captaincy, focus should be on grooming budding players, which Pakistan definitely has in abundance,” said Aamer Sohail.
On Monday, the newly-elected chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi, is set to reveal Babar’s future along with the new team management and selection committee. The 28-year-old became the first Pakistani skipper to lose a Test series at home against England thanks to England. Pakistan went the entire previous year without winning a Test on home grounds.
