“There’s no doubt that Sarfaraz Ahmed is our captain and he will remain so until any other decision is taken. There are unsubstantiated speculations regarding the leadership role after every series in the media.
Sarfaraz will captain Pakistan in the Australia series [five ODIs before the World Cup] and in the World Cup. After it, we will sit and re-evaluate the performance. Obviously, performances are related to leadership but only a case of big disaster can make us review our support. I am not saying that we won’t be honest with our evaluations.”
As there was some confusion of Sarfaraz Ahmed’s existence on the Pakistan squad. When some rumors were practicing that Sarfaraz Ahmed may be replaced from the captaincy. But PCB boss cleared all of these and ensured Sarfaraz Ahmed is going to be the captain for the 10 ODI before the world cup. PCB confirmed Sharfaraz Ahmed as Pakistan Captain in the world cup

“Pressure is always there during captaincy. But with the chairman and board’s support, I feel motivated more than ever. I now would like to transfer the same to the team for the upcoming Australia series and World Cup.”
