For a few days now, there have been reports of Misbah Ul Haq being upset with Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed for not taking up enough responsibility. Now a while ago, the Pakistani Cricket Board not only fired Sarfaraz Ahmed as the captain but also dropped him from the upcoming series against Australia. The board instead has appointed Azhar Ali as the Test captain and Babar Azam will lead the team for the T20Is. This has surely not gone down well with the fans as they posted tweets lashing out at the decision. Sarfaraz Ahmed Sacked, Pakistan Appoints Azhar Ali and Babar Azam as Captains for Test and T20I Cricket. 

For a while now, Sarfaraz Ahmed has been facing a hard time and is bagging the limelight for the wrong reasons. Back then, he faced the wrath of the netizens for yawing behind the stumps during India vs Pakistan, CWC 2019. Not very long ago during Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, questions were raised on his fitness and he was even trolled on social media. In fact a couple of days ago, we even told you that Ahmed was insulted by a journalist who yelled at the former Pakistani captain. However, this time most of the netizens have supported Ahmed and posted tweets against the decision.

Check out a few of them below:

This fan seems to be quite upset

Not justified

Yet another one

We will miss you

PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani while addressing the press said that it was quite a difficult decision to drop Ahmed and blamed him for the loss of confidence. The Pakistani cricket team will fly to Australia for three-match T20I series and will play an equal number of Tests against the same opponent. The first T20I will be played on November 3rd, 2019.
