Azhar Ali, who quit as Pakistan ODI captain in 2017, will begin his stint with a two-Test series in Australia later this year before Pakistan host Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for two Tests apiece

Pakistan have sacked Sarfaraz Ahmed as their captain across all formats, naming Azhar Ali Friday as the new Test skipper and putting Babar Azam in charge of the T20I squad.

Sarfaraz's struggle with his form have also prompted the selectors to drop the stumper-batsman altogether from both the formats.

Pakistan under Sarfaraz failed to make the knockout stage in this year's 50-overs World Cup and languish at seventh in Test ranking.

A new one-day captain will be named later, the PCB said.

Azhar, who quit as Pakistan ODI captain in 2017, will begin his stint with a two-Test series in Australia later this year before Pakistan host Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for two Tests apiece.
