Meanwhile, the biggest news is that Babar Azam has resigned from his captaincy in all three formats after Shan Masood was appointed as the new Test captain and Shaheen Afridi as the new T20 captain. Currently there is news about changes in Pakistan almost every day. Now the responsibility as bowling coach has also been given to two former players. The command was given by Saeed Ajmal and Umar Gul. The Pakistan cricket team will soon go on a tour of Australia where a Test series will be played. Therefore, Pakistan wants to eliminate all its weaknesses.
Saeed Ajmal became the spin and fast bowling coach of Umar Gul.
PCB i.e. Pakistan Cricket Board has taken an important decision and given the bowling responsibility to two of its former players. It was announced that Saeed Ajmal will be the spin bowling coach while Umar Gul has been given the responsibility of the fast bowling coach. He will take charge of the three Test matches against Australia. Shan Masood has the responsibility as Test captain. The entire squad for the same was announced by the PCB on Monday itself.

The Pakistan cricket team will look completely different
T20 captain Shaheen Shah Afridi will talk about the recent changes in Pakistan cricket. The Test captain will be Shan Masood. Pakistan is not due to play an ODI in about a year, so the ODI captain has not been announced yet. Mohammad Hafeez has been appointed as the head coach of the team while he will also take on the responsibilities of the director. Former player Wahab Riaz has been named as the team’s main selector, announcing the team for the Test series against Australia for the first time. Now Umar Gul will be the fast bowling coach while the spin responsibility has been given to Saeed Ajmal. Now this entire change will be tested during the Australia Test series whether all the decisions taken by the PCB are correct or further changes are required.
