Karachi: Pakistan's new chief selector Moin Khan on Thursday dropped a hint that the PCB could go for a change in captaincy of the one-day team in the coming weeks.

As the board continues to make changes and give new assignments as part of its-sake, Moin said that a captain should be liked by the team. "The captain should be someone who is a performer and is also liked in the team. The captain should be liked in the media and by the people as well," Moin told reporters in Lahore.

He appeared to be referring to current Test and one-day skipper, Misbah-ul-Haq, who has led by personal example with some sterling performances, but continues to be criticised in the media and by fans for his approach to the game. Sources have indicated that with Moin taking over as chief selector and manager of the national team, there is a lobby active in the board that wants Shahid Afridi to be given the one-day team captaincy before the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
