Babar Azam Returns as Captain of Pakistan Cricket Team

In an exciting turn of events, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reinstated Babar Azam as the captain of the national T20I and ODI teams. This decision comes after the PCB’s selection committee unanimously agreed that Babar Azam is the right man for the job, as announced on social media platform Twitter.

Babar Azam, known for his stylish batting, previously held the captaincy role until November last year when he was relieved of his duties due to the team’s disappointing performance at the ICC ODI World Cup in India. At that time, fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi took over the T20I captaincy.

However, the decision to remove Babar as captain received criticism from cricketing circles, leading to a reevaluation of the PCB chairman’s powers. In a groundbreaking move, PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi announced in March a shift in authority, transferring the power to appoint a captain to a five-member selection committee consisting of former test cricketers and a data analyst.

With this new structure in place, Babar Azam’s appointment as captain marks the beginning of a new era for Pakistani cricket. Having previously led the national T20I side since 2019 and later taking on the ODI and red ball captaincy roles in 2020, Babar Azam’s leadership and batting prowess make him a natural choice to lead the team into the future.

As Babar Azam returns to helm the Pakistan Cricket Team, fans are hopeful for a resurgence in performance and a renewed sense of pride in their national team. With his talent, determination, and the support of the selection committee, Babar Azam is poised to lead Pakistan to success on the international stage once again.
