PCB names Sarfraz as Pakistan captain for 2019 World Cup

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has named Sarfraz Ahmed as the captain for the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup 2019.

The decision was announced by the board chairman Ehsan Mani in the press conference on Tuesday in Lahore.

Cricket Pakistan earlier reported that the wicketkeeper-batsman was expected to be announced as the leader of the pack.

The report stated the board has made the decision to squash rumours that started circulating after Sarfraz’s four-match suspension imposed by the ICC under its Anti-Racism Code.

PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani was reportedly never in favour of removing Sarfraz from the role. However, it was portrayed by different quarters in the cricketing circle that the board want’s veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik to lead the side in the tournament which is scheduled to begin at the end of May in England.

Sarfraz has been captaining the Men in Green in the 50-over format since Azhar Ali stepped down from the role after series of disappointing results in 2017.

It was also under his leadership when Pakistan clinched the ICC Champions Trophy title in 2017 by beating arch-rivals India in the final.
