Shahid Afridi advises Babar Azam to step down as the T20 captain.
Shahid Afridi advises Babar Azam to focus on his batting rather than the T20I captaincy.
The player from the squad that won the 2009 T20 World Cup continued by saying that Pakistan also possesses Shadab Khan, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shan Masood as potential T20I team captains.
Babar Azam should give up the T20I captaincy and concentrate on his batting, Afridi said to the media. Other players like Shadab, Rizwan, and even Shan can be the T20I team’s captains.
Following a disappointing performance in the Asia Cup 2022 in the UAE, where he managed to score 68 runs in six innings at an average of 11.33, Babar Azam’s individual contribution to the squad has come under scrutiny.
It is important to note that the Men in Green qualified for the T20 World Cup 2021 semifinals, Asia Cup 2022, and T20 World Cup 2022 finals when Babar Azam served as their captain.
The cricketer, who was born in Lahore, has led Pakistan’s T20I side to 40 victories out of 66 matches, a success percentage of 65.57 percent.
It’s important to note that this week, the 28-year-old skipper moved to third place in the T20I batting rankings.
In all three formats, Babar Azam is in my top three: Aaron Finch
Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistani men’s cricket team, is now regarded as the top hitter across all formats. The finest cricketers from Australia, including Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch, Cameron Green, Nathan Lyon, and Marnus
Labuschagne, weigh in on the top five players in the world right now. Aaron Finch, the captain of the T20I team, stated: “He has been in my top three in all three forms.”
Lyon and Labuschagne agreed on the same view of Babar.
He is highly reliable in all three formats, stylish and refined, and scores frequently, according to Maxwell.
