Nevertheless, sources say that even for the ODI format, the captain’s crown is being decorated on the head of the Prime Minister. After the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five on April 3 next month, the Pakistani team will play the only one-day international against Bangladesh at the National Stadium Karachi.
