PCB likely to remove Azhar Ali: Board official
ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering removing team captain Azhar Ali after the national team’s worst performance in the One Day International (ODI) series against England.

England defeated Pakistan by 44 runs in the first ODI, while in the second ODI the visitors were beaten by four wickets.

Recently Pakistan suffered an embarrassing 169-run defeat in the third ODI, losing the five-match series 3-0.

A PCB official told APP on Wednesday that after the team’s poor performance, there have been talks in the board for the dismissal of Azhar as captain.

“After this series, Pakistan will play a series against the West Indies, New Zealand and Australia,” he said. “There are chances that a new captain may be given the responsibility in these upcoming series.”

The official stated that vice-captain and wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed is the most likely and suitable replacement.
