The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to appoint wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan as the vice-captain of the national team, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to the sources close to the development, the captain, coaches, and selection committee had decided to appoint Rizwan as the vice-captain.

Rizwan will continue his role as the vice-captain even after the ongoing home series against New Zealand.

Sources divulged that the meeting of the captain, coaches, and selection committee was held in Islamabad.

The selection committee will soon announce the appointment of Mohammad Rizwan as the vice-captain by submitting suggestions to the Chairman PCB Mohsin Naqvi.

Pakistan and New Zealand will lock horns against each other in the second T20I at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi today (Saturday).

The 31-year-old cricketer Rizwan was earlier appointed as the vice-captain of Pakistan’s T-20 team.

Recently, star batter, Babar Azam, was reappointed as Pakistan captain in the white ball cricket ahead of the upcoming T20I series against New Zealand on home soil

Following the conclusion of the ICC World Cup 2023, Babar was removed from the captaincy in all formats with Shaheen taking the realm of the shorter format and Shan Masood becoming Test captain while no skipper for ODIs was announced.

The decision to replace Shaheen Afridi in  shorter format came after Pakistan lost the T20I series against New Zealand 4-1 under his captaincy.

It should be noted that Rizwan was recently favoured by former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi for the post of the skipper instead of left-arm quick Shaheen for the T20 team.
