Galle’s team was earlier to be handed over to Pakistan’s wicketkeeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed, but he will be traveling with the team to New Zealand in December, seeing that Afridi has been made the captain of the team. Pakistan businessman Nadeem Omar bought Galle’s team and made Afridi captain, saying, “Afridi will now captain this team, as he is the most experienced player in the team.”
