    What know what does it mean? The guy doesn't belong to Intl cricket, because its not in him to be successful at next level.

    At best, he will play few flashy innings and thats it. He will fail at every position you will ask him to bat.

    Too late now to change things. Long term, we need to find another captain and let Sarfraz continue as the keeper and play to keep his spot. I wouldn't be surprised if after losing captaincy, and with his place in the team under pressure, Sarfraz starts performing again with the bat.

    Pakistan is likely to lose tomorrow as well and if they lose it will be 3-0. Remember we have been winning under Sarfraz since 2016 and have not lost a single T20 series under him. So there must be something that he was doing right as a captain unless people think that it was a coincidence. It seems Shadaab without Sarfraz behind the wickets had no clue on how and where to drop the ball. Its high time we should realize that captaincy cannot be taken for granted. Its an art and not everyone knows how to get the best out of players. Is Sarfraz perfect? definitely not. He needs improvement in his batting and needs to calm down a bit to be more successful as a captain.

    Safaraz was the right option to continue, if he fails we can get rid of him for good.

    Malik’s captaincy last t20 wasn’t too hot.

    You can only hope Sarfraz humble the heck down after this debacle, but judging my his comments so far he won't.

    Our players must be the most arrogant, useless around. They will never accept they did something wrong and strive to become better players and in this case, a better captain and person.

    Not a fan of Hafeez but he is/ was miles better Captain than Sarfaraz. Not a long term option but who cares Pakistan is appointing Captain series by series anyways. His place is 100% confirmed in the squad so that is also not an issue. After the WC can appoint someone young as long term Captain.

    Anyways it’s funny that out of all people you are also applying the same tactics as Misbah fans used to apply. If not Misbah then who? Lol

    I’m just asking the question because you seem a bit emotional about it. I agree that we should not go to a default captain because there don’t seem to be any viable alternatives. With Misbah we never got to see what the alternative was and he had an absolutely terrible record as odi skipper.

    However, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to see how the team fared without Sarfraz, and it wasn’t any better. The replacement keeper was crap - you seem to judge Sarfraz on his batting alone and rizwan was crap with the bat. His keeping was good but Sarfraz has been decent lately anyway so we’re not getting anything better in that regard.

    As for the captaincy, malik didn’t get any more out of the players than Sarfraz did and in a lot of situations it was worse. So we’re no better off captaincy wise either.

    If you think Hafeez would fare better then you’re living in cloud cuckoo land.

    Hafeez being guaranteed a place in the team is debatable. He has one good innings in a whole series on average. Is that good enough to be “guaranteed a place”?

    If anything, the only player guaranteed a place in the team is Sarfraz as rizwan is rubbish. There may be other alternatives but they are a complete unknown quantity. You want a gilchrist - sorry mate, he’s not in Pakistan.

    And this is the height of prejudice where people are putting so much emphasis on the importance of a keeper to winning a World Cup. Ridiculous!

    Sit back, relax and enjoy the World Cup. If you think they have zero chance then you prob thought they had zero chance in the CT 2 years ago too.

    Well at least something is decided and Its a lot better than the previous decision of "we pick captains based on series by series thus who knows who lead against australia much less the world cup"

    How moronic was that
    ..

    Now the focus should be to take in as much experience of England before the world cup by playing there and perfect the XI.. I am telling you the bits and pieces being included is more weirder than @Munna new username image..... We need strong specialist and deep batting.

    Well, Sarfraz was being made captain on a series by series basis so it sort of makes sense to announce he'll lead the the till then end of the WC.

    Decision make sense because he has been captain for Pakistan since almost 2 years. Its too late to change skipper, if you had to, then you shouldve done in early 2018.

    Also, in SA we have seen Rizwan is not an upgrade on Sarfu, so you drop latter and replace him with who?
