Captain of Pakistan Team – Babar Azam

Azam scored 2000 runs in ODIs and 1000 runs in T20Is. He is the second-fastest player in ODI runs. His World Cup century against New Zealand in a vital match will go down as one of Pakistan’s best ODI individual performances. Only two other Pakistani batsmen have more ODI hundreds than he did. Despite the fact that Test cricket didn’t start out with the same quick success as white-ball cricket, he was able to rank among the best Test batsmen at the start of 2018 as well thanks to year-over-year gains.

Azam, luckily for Pakistan, is immune to even that ailment. Several Pakistan players of this generation have experienced regressions after a few years in the team. The additional burden Pakistan has placed on his shoulders—he was made the T20I and ODI captain in 2019 before being named the Test captain starting in 2021—seems to have had no effect on his current form. 

Captain of Afghanistan Team — Hashmatullah Shahidi

At the ICC ODI World Cup in 2023, Hashmatullah Shahidi will command the Afghanistan cricket side, with Najibullah Zadran serving as his vice-captain. Hashmatullah Shahidi is the most skilled and productive batter on the Afghanistan team. He is ranked as a top-order batsman by the ICC.
