Following an early exit in the recently concluded World Cup 2019, Pakistan is likely to split captaincy and coaching for different formats before heading to the upcoming assignments. The team failed to qualify for semi-finals of the mega event and quite a few were unhappy with the way Sarfaraz Ahmed led the side.

 

Now to make things smooth, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is going to take some strong actions, including that of splitting captaincy and coaching roles,

"Since Pakistan has to play eight Tests of the World Test Championship against Sri Lanka, Australia, Bangladesh and England before the T20 World Cup in Australia next year, the PCB is pretty concerned about how to improve performance of the team in Tests," PTI quoted a PCB source as saying. 

 

"Pakistan will be playing only three ODIs but nine to 10 T20s before the T20 Asia Cup and T20 World Cup next year, prompting PCB to consider separate captains and coaches for red and white-ball cricket,"

 

However, other roles including that of manager, bowling coach, batting coach, etc will remain the same for all formats,

"But the board is now considering the option of having separate captains and head coaches for Test and limited-overs cricket with the support staff i.e manager, bowling coach, batting coach, trainer, fielding coach, physiotherapist remaining the same for all formats." It added.

 

Young Babar Azam is likely to take the role of the captaincy of longer-version as Pakistan would be looking for an option that serves for a long time.
