On March 24 at Sharjah, Pakistan will play the opening game of a three-game T20 series against Afghanistan. Babar Azam might be replaced as the Pakistan team’s captain for this series by left-handed pacer Shaheen Afridi. Several Pakistani media outlets covered this story.
Babar Azam and wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan may not play in this series, according to “Gio News” sources. To offer the young person an opportunity, they will be rested. Hasibullah Khan can receive a call for the first time in this series for the young batsman Salim Ayyub, who is eager to make his Pakistani debut. Azam Khan, who has participated in three T20 matches for Pakistan, may also be called. Ihsanullah, a young pacer, can also open his forehead.

Mohammad Yousuf, a former Pakistani batsman, may be given a significant task in this series with Afghanistan. He may be handed the post of temporary head coach. As they have not yet concluded negotiations with Mickey Arthur to serve as the team’s head coach, the PCB must choose this alternative.
The head coach for the New Zealand series was Saqlain Mushtaq, but his contract was up last month. Prior to this, Yusuf served as the team’s batting coach. Additionally, he has a long-term contract as the batting instructor at the High-Performance Academy in Lahore.
