3 players who can replace Babar Azam as Pakistan captain

Pakistan captain Babar Azam could lose his captaincy after a dismal run in the T20 World Cup 2024, exiting in the group stage.

The Pakistan team has been under constant scrutiny for their underwhelming performance over the years. This instability may be attributed to the lack of a stable captain, management, and team. After their disappointing campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024, resulting in an early exit, Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s captaincy has come under question. There is a possibility that Babar could lose his captaincy. Let’s explore the options for Pakistan’s leadership who could replace Babar Azam as captain.

3 players who can replace Babar Azam’s captaincy

Mohammad Rizwan

As per speculations, Mohammad Rizwan wants to take over the role of captaincy in the team. The right-handed batter has a better captaincy record in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) with a 66.66% win rate compared to Babar Azam’s 36.36%.

Pakistan’s management could remove Babar and appoint Rizwan because of his impressive T20 format records.

Shaheen Afridi

Shaheen Afridi was handed the captaincy of the Pakistan team after Babar was sacked. However, with four losses and one win in five matches, he was removed as skipper shortly thereafter. Afridi is still keen to lead the team. In the Pakistan Super League (PSL), he has a win percentage of 52.94% with 18 wins and 15 losses in 34 matches.

Shadab Khan

Shadab Khan is another option for Pakistan to explore as captain. He led Islamabad United to victory in the 2024 PSL and boasts an impressive record with a 56.36% win rate in 55 matches.
