Good decision to remove Sarfaraz but wrong decision to appoint Babar as Captain. He is not mentally that much strong that will maintain his own batting form & captaincy altogether.#SarfarazAhmed

The captain who won Champions Trophy , The captain who made you no:01 T20 team , the captain who won 11 consecutive T20 series is removed from captaincy when only 12 months are remaining for World T20. #Misbah #SarfarazAhmed #Sarfaraz pic.twitter.com/GuuyomDQSu

A very tragic decision by the poor PCB. Person who has made all his efforts to make Pak no.1 in t20 rank is now been removed from that format as well 'Shame on @captainmisbahpk

Thats sarfaraz's batting performance that made him loose his Captaincy, he was just a burden on this batting lineup,

Sarfraz was poor in tests but did he deserve to be sacked from T20s after 1 bad series?. #SarfarazAhmed #Pakistan #babarazam. Sarfraz's record as @TheRealPCB captain. Let's see how Babar Azam copes as a Captain. pic.twitter.com/mMhC7d8gBl

It is pertinent to mention here that Sarfaraz Ahmed took the reins of the Pakistan cricket team in 2016 was impressive as captain in the shortest format of the game as Pakistan blew away all those who stood before them. The Men in Green enjoyed a win percentage of 78.37 with 29 wins from 38 T20Is.
