Sikander Bakht, former Test cricket, says the current Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq should be the captain for the upcoming World Cup instead of selected Shahid Afridi.
Bakht said through a German radio station that a captain always leads from the front but Afridi hadn’t been performing very well after he took over as captain of the T20 and ODI teams of Pakistan.
He said that Afridi, as a player, won the T20 World Cup for Pakistan, however, after he captained, it affected his performance as an individual player so that’s why he thought Afridi shouldn’t be the captain anymore.
Bakht futher said that Misbah-ul-Haq handles the pressure in Test cricket very well and he thinks that Misbah-ul-Haq can also handle the World Cup pressure as well. He also said that the credit has gone to the performance of Masbah for the recent victor of Pakistan opposing to New Zealand.
