Sarfaraz Ahmed has been retained as the captain of the Pakistan cricket team for the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, the country's cricket board (PCB) said on Friday.
Sarfaraz took charge of Pakistan across all formats in April 2017 and led the team to the Champions Trophy victory two months later.
The decision to continue with Sarfaraz comes a week after former captain Misbah-ul-Haq was confirmed as the head coach and chief selector of the national team.
"I feel humbled and honoured to have been awarded extension to my captaincy term," Sarfaraz said in a statement.
"I have enjoyed captaining the Pakistan cricket team and look forward to improve my leadership qualities under the new set-up of Misbah-ul-Haq who also has a proven record as captain.
