Pakistan Retains Azhar Ali As One-day Skipper

Pakistan announced that Azhar Ali will lead the one-day team in their forthcoming series against the West Indies, despite calls for his removal following a 4-1 odi defeat against england earlier this month. Azhar has been widely criticised for his unimaginative captaincy since taking over from misbah-ul-haq, who retired from the 50-over format following the world cup last year. He has led his country to 15 losses in 25 matches, with nine wins and one no result. The team have dropped to ninth in the one-day rankings. Sarfraz ahmed, who had been tipped to replace azhar as one-day skipper, will lead the side in the three-match twenty20 series starting in dubai from friday. That will be followed by three one-day matches with azhar as captain and as many tests — all in the united arab emirates
