PAK vs NZ T20 World Cup 2022: Pakistani captain Babar Azam is currently facing the worst phase of his career. He is constantly struggling in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. He has scored 39 runs in 5 innings of 5 matches of this global tournament at a modest average of 7.80 and has a very poor strike rate of 61.90. He is at number 11 in terms of players scoring runs for Pakistan. Fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is also ranked 10th above him. It is ironic, but true that the captain has become the biggest burden on the Pakistani team. In such a difficult situation, the team’s mentor Matthew Hayden has come out in support of Babar just before the semi-finals.

Hayden expects special performance from Babar

Matthew Hayden has expressed hope for a special performance in the knockout stage of the World Cup from Babar Azam, who is in poor form. Babar is fourth in the list of highest run-scorers in this format since the last T20 World Cup, but has failed miserably in the current tournament. His innings of 25 off 33 balls against Bangladesh has been his best in the last five matches.

Hayden said in a pre-match press conference before the semi-final match against New Zealand on Wednesday, “If you have not seen a great game so far, then there is no need to be surprised because the best players can not be kept silent for long. can.”

Everyone has to face tough times. And we know that the weather is quite calm before the storm. I would like to tell the world that you are going to see a special innings from Babar’s side.

Hayden advises New Zealand to be careful
