Pakistani cricket enthusiasts are busy discussing Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur’s (who has been working as head coach with the Pakistan team since mid-2016) recommendation to PCB of having Sarfaraz Ahmed step down as Captain of the team.
Reportedly Arthur has suggested that Sarfaraz should be replaced by Shahdab Khan as captain in the limited-over formats while Babar Azam should be given the reins of the Test side.
Here is what Arthur reportedly told the PCB:
“I need two more years with the Pakistan team and then I can deliver remarkable results,”

While others think Mickey is being selfish and political.

How selfish can Mickey Arthur be? He has bad mouthed poor Sarfaraz to the PCB just to save his own back. Throw that joker out. Pak performs best with a coach from Pak. Enough of Goras. Love from India

Why doesn't the PCB remove this political man? He was discarded by AUS and hired by PAK

Indian Stand-up Comedian and Cricket Humorist also joined the debate when he took to Twitter to post his comments on the matter.
Mickey Arthur says Sarfraz should go and Babar Azam should be captain and for limited overs it should be Shadab. Don’t worry Mickey let him be , Pakistan is used to having many captains in the team.
