Twitter reacts to Sarfaraz’s removal as T20I, Test captain

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday announced that it has removed wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed as the team's Test and T20I captain. The board's decision has been received with mixed response anticipated by fans on social media.

Some fans praised the PCB's decision to describe Sarfaraz as Pakistan's front-man in two formats.

Those who considered the cricket board's decision to be bad were few.

Sarfraz Ahmed, who took over the reins of the team in 2016, was particularly influential as the captain in the shortest format of the game as Pakistan blew up all those who stood in front of him. The Man in Green enjoyed a win percentage of 78.37 with 29 wins over 38 T20Is.

However, Pakistan was not as successful in the Test format, as it won just four of the 13 matches led by the wicketkeeper-batsman.
