From Shoaib Malik to Sarfaraz Ahmed, ranking Pakistan's last 10 ODI captains - in pictures

A look at the least and most successful 50-over leaders for the men in green

Pakistan named Babar Azam as their new One-Day Internationals captain, putting the star batsman in charge of both their limited-overs teams.

Babar, who took over Twenty20 captaincy earlier this year, succeeds Sarfaraz Ahmed as Pakistan's white-ball leader while Azhar Ali remained Test leader.

"I want to congratulate Azhar Ali and Babar Azam for getting captaincy extensions," chief selector and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said in a statement on Wednesday.

"This is absolutely the right decision as they also require certainty and clarity on their future roles. I am sure they will now start looking to the future and start planning so that they can build sides that can perform at the expected levels."

Babar has been a prolific scorer and currently ranks among the top five batsmen in all three formats. Captaincy will no doubt mean added responsibility for Babar.
