<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/aamer-sohail/">Aamer Sohail</a> is against the idea of replacing current Pakistan captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sarfraz-ahmed-2/news/">Sarfaraz Ahmed</a> following their underwhelming performance at the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019">ICC Cricket World Cup 2019</a>. <p></p> <p></p><strong>READ:</strong> <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/global-t20-canada-umar-akmal-claims-former-pakistan-test-cricketer-asked-him-to-fix-matches-877201">Umar Akmal claims former Test cricketer asked him to fix matches</a> <p></p> <p></p>Aamer, a former captain himself, says the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should groom someone to take over the reins, something which they are yet to do. <p></p> <p></p>"There is a lot of debate and discussion about suitability of Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain in some or all three formats of the game," Sohail told Cricket World. "To me this is just a sad case of a knee-jerk reaction to recent disappointing performances by the Pakistan side. The fact is that PCB have not groomed a successor to him and so to expect Sarfaraz to be replaced for the sake of change is absolute madness." <p></p> <p></p>Sohail, who played 47 Tests and 156 ODIs, has also advised PCB to appoint someone with leadership material and not just because he happens to be a good player. <p></p>"What we need to do is to act in a calm manner to prepare his replacement and to look for someone to take over who has leadership material and is not simply a good player. If we don t groom for at least a year a player who has a good grasp of the tactical aspects of the game, one who can operate well under pressure and has game awareness then we could easily end up with a dressing room with possibly six captains instead of one good leader and we cannot afford that at any cost," he said. <p></p> <p></p>Coach Mickey Arthur was sacked by the PCB on Wednesday, a decision taken after the recommendations of a review meeting on August 2. <p></p> <p></p>Commenting on left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir's decision to quit Test cricket, Sohail said unless PCB finds a way to make playing the longest format financially lucrative, there will always be a real chance of some other playing opting for a similar route. <p></p> <p></p>"It's clear that Test match fees are in no way comparable to the allure of attractive financial rewards that a player playing in the shorter formats, namely Twenty20, can get for himself. So, the decision is a no-brainer and unless Test match fees become good enough to challenge what can be earned from the lucrative Twenty20 leagues, there will always be a possibility of Test players wanting to take a practical approach," he said.
