He should not be the captain in any format." <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan were knocked out in the group stage of the World Cup. Sarfraz's men finished fifth in the points table at equal points (11) with New Zealand after the round-robin stage. However, the Black Caps qualified as the fourth team for the semi-finals owing to better net run-rate.

He should captain the side in ODIs and T20Is. They should test him (Babar Azam) in Test cricket. I wish him the best. He has scored a lot of runs," he said. <p></p> <p></p>The 'Rawalpindi Express' had earlier lashed out at Sarfraz following Pakistan's defeat in the round-robin stage of the World Cup and had termed the 32-year-old as a "brainless captain". <p></p> <p></p>Recently, former Pakistan skipper and current Prime Minister <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/imran-khan/news/">Imran Khan</a>, also said that he is working on a plan to develop "best cricket team of the world".

I am going to reform Pakistan cricket," said Imran while addressing a gathering of Pakistani-Americans at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington DC on July 21. <p></p> <p></p>"There have been a lot of disappointments. Hopefully, in the next World Cup, you will see a very professional, best Pakistan team. Remember my words," he added.
