Pakistan cricket team’s star leg-spin bowler Shadab Khan has opened up on the differences of captaincy between two Pakistan captains, the former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and current captain Babar Azam.


The current Pakistan cricket team’s captain Babar Azam is having quite a successful stint as the captain of the Men in Green. He is already being considered as one of the great captains of the Pakistan team.

However, there is always a game of comparison among two of the greats. That is same scenario here as well. Already fans in Pakistan are calling Babar a better captain than former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, which has led to comparison between the duo.


Meanwhile, Shadab Khan, Pakistan cricket team’s star leg-spin bowler and who has played under both the captains, has spoken on the difference between the two.

Shadab Khan entered his footsteps in the International cricket scenes under the guidance and captaincy of the former captain and is still a very established name in the Pakistan team under Babar Azam’s captaincy.

The bowler was quoted by a Pakistani web portal as saying that Babar Azam is a kind of captain who remains cool on the field and doesn’t express much, whereas, Sarfaraz Ahmed was very active on the field.


“Sarfaraz Ahmed was an active captain in the field whereas Babar Azam does not depict his emotions on the field much. Being a captain of your country is difficult. Babar Azam used to take pressure early on but he’s well settled as a captain now,” Shadab was quoted as saying.

Shadab Khan is a very important and integral member of the Pakistan cricket team for long now. He made his debut in 2017 in a T20I match against West Indies. He went on to play the ODI and the Tests for Pakistan in a span of month after making his T20I debut. He has thus far played 64 T20I matche and has scored 275 runs and taken 73 wickets.

He has also played 51 ODI matches and 6 Test matches for the Men in Green and has scored 548 runs and 300 runs and has taken 69 and 14 wickets respectively.
