Babar Azam’s captaincy will end after the defeat in the ICC World Cup 2023 in India, Geo News has said.
According to Geo sources, Test, ODI, and T20 captain Babar Azam will now play as a batsman and not captain. If Babar Azam resigns as captain, the board will accept it, but nonetheless, the board has decided to remove Babar Azam from the captaincy.

According to Yahya Hussaini, Shan Masood is a strong candidate to become the Test captain on the tour of Australia, while Shaheen Afridi is a leading contender for T20 leadership in the tour of New Zealand. Shaheen Afridi will be the captain of Pakistan in the 2024 ICC World T20.
It should be noted that in the ongoing Cricket World Cup in India, the Pakistan team could not make it to the semi-finals and lost five of their nine matches.
