Shahid Afridi replaced as Pakistan captain by Misbah-ul-Haq for ODI matches against Ireland

The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed Misbah-ul-Haq ahead of Shahid Afridi as captain for two one-day internationals against Ireland later this month.
Afridi led Pakistan to the semifinals of the World Cup and his team also clinched the five-match ODI series against West Indies 3-2 earlier this month.
However, he caused a stir by criticizing the team management on his return home from the West Indies and has been asked by the PCB to explain his remarks.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told The Associated Press that it is the "policy of the board to appoint a captain on a series to series basis."
Afridi and Younis Khan, another former captain, were both were named in the 16-member squad to play the two ODIs against Ireland on May 28 and May 30 in Belfast.
