Pakistan had a good campaign in Asia Cup 2022 and ended up as runners-up of the tournament. But the team did not look good in the upcoming tournament. Pakistan lose to India in a close encounter and lost to Zimbabwe in a disappointing match. Pakistan is kind of over depending on the openers duo. Rizwan and Babar had not performed according to the standards they have set. Pakistan’s former players mentioned that Pakistan’s great issue is Babar not performing, he should quit captaincy after the t20 world cup.
Babar should quit captaincy after the t20 world cup
” If he considers me an elder brother, Babar Azam should quit captaincy after this World Cup. If you want him to score 25,000 runs or 22,000 runs, he should only play as a player. Otherwise, he will come under extreme pressure and his performance will go down. If Babar or my uncle understands this, the former should step down as captain. He should focus on his game like Virat Kohli has. He should play for long, as after him, we aren’t able to see a batsman as solid as him. If you want him to be the captain of the team, Pakistan cricket will have to bear a big loss as he might not be around for too long (as a batter).”
Basically, Yonus Khan and Kamran Akmal opened up and mentioned that for the betterment of the team he should quit captaincy. They think Babar is overburdened and his form is getting degraded due to this. His form is very important for the team and success and he is the long front runner of the team. So the experts believe he should focus on batting and perform well for Pakistan.
