Shaheen Afridi has played a key role as captain in convincing Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim to reverse their retirements. However, his position is under threat as the T20I captain.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to make a pivotal decision regarding Shaheen Afridi’s future as captain following the national camp, scheduled to commence on March 26 at Kakul.

During a press conference after announcing the selection committee yesterday, PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi refrained from divulging specifics about Shaheen’s captaincy prospects.

“Even I don’t know who the captain will be,” Naqvi disclosed. “Whether Shaheen continues or a new captain emerges will be determined after the fitness camp.”

Naqvi emphasized the importance of considering various technical factors in the decision-making process.


“We want a long-term solution, whether it’s Shaheen or a new leader. And then we intend to stick by that individual, instead of making hasty changes in captaincy based solely on match outcomes,” he added.

Shaheen Afridi assumed the role of T20I captain after Pakistan’s disappointing performance in the ODI World Cup 2023 in India, replacing Babar Azam. The decision was made by the former committee led by Zaka Ashraf, who also appointed Shan Masood as Test captain.

Shaheen’s leadership credentials were bolstered by his success as captain of Lahore Qalandars, guiding the franchise to consecutive PSL titles.

However, his initial stint as captain in the five-match series against New Zealand fell short of expectations, with the Blackcaps securing a dominant 4-1 victory.

Meanwhile, his team Lahore Qalandars also had a dismal PSL 9 season, where they managed to win only one game.
