Ehsan Mani, Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has made it clear on Friday (November 9) that Sarfraz Ahmed will remain captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team and there is no question of changing him since the team is doing well under his leadership.

There are a lot of talks concerning Sarfraz’s role ever since Chairman of the PCB cricket committee Mohsin Khan made a bold comment against the wicket-keeper batsman, saying he should be relieved from the burden of Test captaincy to easy his workload.

Mani told Dawn, “I can’t understand why media is raising this issue. Sarfraz is captain for all the three formats and there is no question of changing him since the team is doing well.”

He further noted, “Pakistan drew the Test series on England soil under Sarfraz’s captaincy and recently won against Australia in the UAE. He is Pakistan captain and there is no debate on this.”

The chairman signed off by saying, “It was an old statement of Mohsin about Sarfraz but now the situation is different. However, the media is raising it again and again.”

Meanwhile, Mohsin denied a statement in a recent media talk that Sarfraz’s performance would be reviewed before appointing him captain till the World Cup 2019.

He signed off by saying, “I did not give any such statement. Sarfraz is the Pakistan captain till the time our team is giving satisfactory performance.”
