Wasim Akram reveals his choice of Captain for World Cup 2019
KARACHI - Former Pakistan fast-bowler Wasim Akram has revealed his choice of Captain for the World Cup 2019.
He said that Pakistan should persist with Sarfraz Ahmed as captain, ahead of the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales.
While speaking to media in Karachi, Akram said that time to change captain has passed and also there is no better choice than Sarfraz, currently, for the leadership role.
“We no longer have the time to change captain. Sarfraz is a passionate captain and also there is no alternative choice available,” said Akram.
Akram was not pleased with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s decision to call Sarfraz back home.
“Sarfraz made a mistake but he admitted it and hopefully won’t repeat such a thing in the future,” he said. “Calling him back from the tour is not a good decision.”
While talking about all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s captaincy in the fourth ODI, Akram stressed on the need for long-term decision making rather than the other way round.
