Sarfaraz Ahmed appointed as Pakistan's Test captain
New Delhi: In the lines of his awe-inspiring captaincy, Sarfaraz Ahmed was officially appointed as the skipper of Pakistan Cricket team's Test side. Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan made the announcement.
"I take this opportunity to announce Ahmed as our Test captain in addition to one-day and Twenty20 captain," Khan said at a function held to honour the Champions Trophy winning side. "I and Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq had decided already and I think this is the right time to declare it."
Sarfaraz, who is named Pakistan skipper after the retirement of Misbah-ul-Haq at the end of the West Indies tour in May 2017, will be seen leading the side in all the three formats of the game.
"I am honoured to be appointed Test captain. I will do my best to lift the team in all three formats and will not rest on Champions Trophy laurels," said Sarfaraz.
