Babar Azam Pakistan: Pakistan’s team led by captain Babar Azam may have reached the semi-finals and final of the last two T20 World Cups, but Babar’s batting was questionable in the recently concluded tournament. Many former Pakistan cricketers raised questions about his performance. He was also asked to leave the opening. At the same time, former captain Shahid Afridi has even demanded him to leave the captaincy. Another Pakistan star cricketer has also called Babar Azam selfish for not giving up the opening position.

Babar Azam’s performance was very poor in T20 World Cup 2022. Many questions were raised on his strike rate and slow batting. Now the talk has come on his captaincy as well. Regarding him, Shahid Afridi said on a Pakistani channel, “I respect Babar a lot and that’s why I don’t want him to take the pressure of captaincy in T20 cricket. Rather I want him to focus on his captaincy in Test cricket.” Also you have players like Shadab, Rizwan and even Shan Masood who can captain the team in T20 format.”

Let us tell you that Babar Azam has left the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Karachi Kings and has tied up with Peshawar Zalmi for the next year. Regarding this also, Afridi said, “I think Babar should also avoid captaining Peshawar Zalmi in the next season of Pakistan Super League.” Earlier, former captain Wasim Akram had made a big disclosure on asking Babar Azam to leave the opening position. He had said that he had told Babar about this during the PSL but he remained adamant.

Babar’s insistence harms Pakistan cricket.

Regarding this, former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria also targeted Babar Azam and even called him selfish. Kaneria said on his YouTube channel, ‘Babar Azam is adamant on not giving up his opening position. This happened even when he was with Karachi Kings (in Pakistan Super League). He is adamant on this because he cannot bat in the middle order. Due to this stubbornness, slow start of the innings for the team is causing damage to Pakistani cricket. Somewhere Kaneria’s meaning was clear that Babar is adamant on his stubbornness for his selfishness.

Babar’s performance in T20 World Cup 2022

There is no doubt about Babar Azam’s batting and his ability. He was also the top scorer in the last T20 World Cup. He is the only Pakistan captain who is currently in the top-3 in the rankings for all three formats. But runs were not coming off his bat in the recently concluded T20 World Cup. Many questions were also raised on the strike rate of his batting. Babar Azam scored a total of 124 runs in 7 matches of the tournament at a strike rate of 93 below 100.
