Earlier, Najam Sethi warns Afghanistan Cricket Board to look after their player’s behaviour during the series to avoid a clash among the players like what happened during the Asia Cup 2022.

“There is no threat. Our established skipper Babar will remain the captain of our national squad until he himself decides whether he wants to leave captaincy of any one format or all three formats or he wants to remain the captain in all. It will totally be his call”

“I respect Babar a lot; he is our top star. I am very happy that he supported our decision to try youngsters against Afghanistan”, he added.

Pakistan captain Babar, along with Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Shah Afridi has been rested for the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan in Sharjah.

Chair of the PCB Management Committee, Najam Sethi, said: “I want to congratulate Shadab Khan on his appointment as the Pakistan team captain for the series against Afghanistan”.

“Shadab Khan has been the Pakistan vice-captain in white-ball cricket for the past couple of years and it is logical that he takes over the side in the absence of Babar Azam for the short three-match T20I tour of Sharjah”.

Pakistan and Afghanistan will play a total of 3 T20I matches between March 25 to March 29 in Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
