Former Cricketer Suggests Mohammad Rizwan for White-Ball Captaincy

Former Pakistan pacer Sarfaraz Nawaz has suggested wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan for the national team’s white-ball captaincy.

While talking to a local news outlet, the former fast bowler threw his weight behind Rizwan, who led Multan Sultans to three consecutive PSL finals.

“[Mohammad] Rizwan has proved his captaincy credentials by helping KPK win all domestic events in the past while his performance as Multan Sultans’ captain has been consistent over the years. He is the best choice for the job. Babar Azam is low in confidence and should not be considered for the job,” he stated.

For the unversed, Pakistan’s current white-ball captain Babar Azam has been under hot water following the national men’s team’s early exit from the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2024.

Sarfaraz Nawaz also commented on the recent decision by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to remove former players Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq from the national selection committee, while suggesting major changes to improve the selection process.

“The selection committee has worked collectively as was apparent during the pre-World Cup press conference with every member admitting that the team was constituted after consensus,” said the former player.

“Every member of the committee was responsible for the selection, so all should be sacked. The entire selection committee was incapable of delivering.

“Major surgery is required if at all we want to put the system on the right track. There should be a three-member selection committee and the mere sacking of Wahab and Abdul Razzaq would not be enough.”
