    "Sarfaraz Ahmed should definitely be Pakistan's captain for the 2019 World Cup" : Misbah-ul-Haq

    Misbah-ul-Haq in a media talk:

    "Just because of one Asia Cup we have started making a huge fuss, the team has been doing well for 2 years. Bad patches happen but one tournament is not a big deal"

    "In all formats, the team is doing well and we're back on track in Tests"

    "Sarfaraz Ahmed is learning and improving and I don't think there should be any debate about his captaincy. There shouldn't even be any talk about replacing him"

    "Just a few months are left for the World Cup so from my point of view, there is no doubt about it. I don't even know why people are doubtful about it. There is no question about it. Sarfaraz Ahmed should definitely be Pakistan's captain for the 2019 World Cup. It's clear in my mind, that's how it should be"

    Context for this is that Ehsan Mani yesterday in a presser stated that they have not come to any decision about Sarfaraz leading the team at the World Cup and that the decision would depend on the cricket committee's recommendations.

    Ehsan Mani has a reputation for being a skilled operator, so I am surprised by how naive some of his statements in front of the media have been.

    Misbah should have headed the committee, with Urooj Mumtaz, Wasim Akram and Bazid Khan as its members.


    Don't know why we are trusting our cricket with a failed actor of B grade bollywood movies.

    What a mess we have started by appointing both these guys... First Mani who seemed like a decent appointee but looks like both him and Mohsin are horrible choices.

    They are trying to fix what's not broken

    @SarfiBabarHaris so you still hate Misbah?

    It's an opinion that one would expect from a cricketing genius like Misbah.

    But I'd disagree. A lot depends on how Sarfraz does against NZ and SA.

    His own contributions. Because we cannot have a captain who can't lead from the front. Puts pressure on an already fragile lineup.

    If he's able to prove me wrong and show he indeed is an ODI performer, should be the captain for WC.

    Does that sound fair @SarfiBabarHaris ?

    I used to think it's too late to change the captain. But no, have to see how he performs.

    Even if I'm hoping for that, how would it actually affect Sarfraz s performance? You think it's sort of an evil eye and he'd miraculously stop being a Kohli if I hope for him to fail?

    To answer you, no I'm not hoping for that. I'm happy to give him this chance, we're doing no good in ODIs and if he can perform to stay in the side, he really should.

    Otherwise, need to find someone else.

    I don't hate anyone. Its not a war of point scoring for me!

    Any sane person will say what Misbah have said.

    And no sane cricket organization chop and change captain months before the world cup. That will only disrupt the team. Abhdi jaan chor deni chaheye team ki world cup tk aur unhain back krna chaheye. Confidence is the key!

    Our captain was changed only a few months before CT. Uss se kia hua?

    So you don't believe that Sarfraz needs to perform first and his performance should be seen against NZ/SA?

    Ofcourse Performance of every player should be seen not only Sarfraz but i am not a fan of changing the core of the team just 6 months before the world cup. If players go with mindset of being dropped and not being a part of world cup, surely their performances will take a dent!

    Read my old posts and i have said the same for last 1 year that a pool of 15-18 players should be identified and un ko world cup tk full confidence do aur back karo.

    Silly statements like we have not finalized captain for world will only create problems imv. Once again confidence and backing is the key.


    And yes it was another silly decision by PCB not to make Sarfraz captain after 2015 and then bringing him on just before the CT but kudos to the whole team that they won the CT when literally no one gave them a chance. Though Sarfraz was already t20 captain for almost 1 year so that helped somehow!

    Sarfraz has to justify that he is selected on merit in the team without captaincy. Right now most people think he cannot make the team on merit. If he does not improve then Misbah will also change his mind and go against his captaincy.

    Lagta hai, ek hi jatke main Captain patti palat diya. Previously, there was Major, Waleed & very few others, now I guess in PP election, he'll get at least 35% vote (kahin single majority na ho jaye).

    What head of adviser, Misbah for PCB Chairman ......................

    On a serious note, I think he was responding to a leading question. For a careful personality like him, it's a bit surprising that he would say something such direct, which is contradictory to his role and against his Chairman's view couple of days back (In Corporate culture, it's almost like insubordination).

    The best thing now should be to keep silent regarding this - "no comments" is better than many comments here. As of now, Sarfraz is Captain and he has to perform well below expectation for a change in leadership for WC.

    Selection blunders, lack of match practice against quality teams and typical slow starter Pakistani team were the reasons behind Asia cup's disaster. Not Sarfraz. He is growing fast as a captain and now is not the time to bring uncertainty, politics within team and lack of confidence in your captain.

    strictly as WK batsman no captaincy; my point is he is currently only in the team because he is captain otherwise Pakistan would have dropped him long time ago, he has been horrible for long and only captaincy has been saving him from axe

    Well Misbah is hardly likely to say Sarfraz should be dropped and shouldn't be captain. This nonsense of sacking a captain before major tournament is hogwash with Pakistan. We don't plan for the future and Sarfraz was made captain months before the CT.

    Also Misbah said that Sarfraz is leading from the front which is nonsense. So not all of these comments are sensible. PCB will stick with Sarfraz as long he performs.
