Sarfraz said,





It's an honour to captain Pakistan in all three formats, like we have done with ODI and T20 cricket recently, I would like us to improve our Test performances as well. I wish to thank Shaharyar Khan for placing his trust in me, and we would like to ask everyone to put their trust in the Pakistan cricket team.
