Pakistan Test captain Azhar Ali on Thursday dismissed reports that he could lose his post as rumors, saying the CPC had not yet spoken to him about the matter.

The 81 Test veteran was named test captain last year in October and in May the PCB confirmed him as captain for the 2020/21 international season for test matches.

“What can I say when no one has told me about this topic yet, I just think it’s just rumors and nothing else.
