The Pakistan Cricket Board has sacked Sarfaraz Ahmed from the captaincy of Tests and T20Is.
Meanwhile, Men In Green, who are scheduled to tour Australia from November 2019, would be led by Azhar Ali in Tests.
Batting sensation Babar Azam would captain in T20Is.
The development comes following a series of dismal performances by Pakistan, as they are ranked seventh in the Test Rankings.
