“Misbah ul Haq should be appointed as the captain of Twenty20 format of cricket,” he said in an interview.
He was referring to the vacant seat of Pakistan skipper in the format, after the resignation of Muhammad Hafeez from the post.
Hafeez left the captaincy after criticism over defeat and poor performance in T20 world cup in Bangladesh. Afridi and other players had taken aim at batsmen for their poor performances.
Since then names of many players have emerged including Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Umar Amin and Ahmed Shehzad.
Now, Sarfaraz Nawaz has suggested Misbah.
“He has the skill and capability to lead the team even in the short format of cricket.”
Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi will finalize the name of the new captain.
