The Pakistan Cricket Board has announced the captain and vice-captain for the Sri Lanka Series.

According to details, the PCB announced Sarfraz Ahmed as the captain of the national cricket team while Babar Azam has been appointed as the vice-captain of the national cricket team for the Sri Lanka Series.

Sarfraz Ahmed has been leading the national cricket team since 2017 while the national team led by Sarfraz Ahmed has won 4 Tests, 26 one-day and 29 Twenty20 matches.

Babar Azam is on the top in the ICC T20 rankings, third in one-day cricket and 13th best in Test cricket.

The one-day and T20 series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will commence from September 27 to October 9.

It is pertinent to mention that the chairman of the PCB has appointed the captain and vice-captain of the national cricket team on the recommendation of the chief selector and head coach of the national cricket team Misbah-ul-Haq and the PCB.

Earlier on September 12, The Sri Lankan Cricket Board has announced that it will reassess the security situation in Pakistan after the board has received a warning from its PM Office of a possible attack on the team.

The fresh statement from SLC, issued on Wednesday evening, suggests that the tour is once again under clouds of doubt.

According to the statement, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board has sought the assistance of the Sri Lankan Government to conduct a reassessment of the security situation in Pakistan ahead of the national team’s planned tour to the country.

“The decision was taken following a warning, the SLC received from the Prime Minister’s Office, sent via the Ministry of Telecommunications, Foreign Employment and Sports,” the statement said.
