Tribune Take: Pakistan cricket needs a succession plan for the captaincy

Sports Editor Faras Ghani says the PCB needs to find a vice captain and groom someone for Misbah's retirement.

In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at the Pakistan cricket team’s exemplary performance against Bangladesh, the upcoming England series and Mohsin Khan's appointment as coach. 

Faras Ghani, Sports Editor The Express Tribune, says this win was a great way to end a very successful year for the team. Having not lost a single series this entire year, the team goes into the England series with confidence - even though England is the number one test cricket side.

However, Ghani points out with Misbahul Haq's success as a captian, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has yet to appoint a vice captain. With no one being groomed in the shadows for two-years down the line, the PCB might find itself in a tough spot soon.

Who says no choice for Vice Captain Hafeez deserves this spot very well. And every one knows this.
