Sources say that if Babar Azam resigns as captain, the board will accept it, but as another option, the board has decided to remove Babar Azam from captaincy.
According to sources, Shan Masood is a strong candidate to become the Test captain on the tour of Australia, while Shaheen Afridi is a strong candidate for the T20 leadership in the tour of New Zealand.
