Babar’s appointment as ODI captain met with mixed reactions


Babar Azam was appointed the skipper of Pakistan’s ODI team on Wednesday as the cricket board announced the central contracts for its players for the 2020-21 season.

Users of social media website Twitter took to the micro-blogging website to react to the appointment. Several fans were happy about the news while some fear that the burden of captaincy will have a negative effect on the talismanic batsman.

Babar replaced wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed as the front man of the Pakistan side in the 50-over format after having taken over the T20I side earlier on.

He was Pakistan’s highest run-getter in last year’s Cricket World Cup with 474 runs from eight games at an average of 67.71.
