Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has been at the helm of criticism after New Zealand won the 5th T20I match by six wickets to level the series 2-2. Notably, the Men in Green led the series 2-0, but the visitors won two of the last three games, as the 4th match got washed off due to rain.
Reacting to the drawn series, former Pakistan chief selector Mohammad Wasim, who got sacked by the PCB last year after the board underwent several changes, has launched a fresh attack on Mohammed Rizwan and Babar Azam.
Wasim accused the main batters of the team to play for personal milestones and ICC rankings. The 44-year-old stated that the batters slow down from 40-50 and 90-100 to complete their milestones and added that the situation will not change in Pakistan cricket till the ICC ranking equation is there.
“For the past five years, look at the stats of our main batters when they go from 40-50 or 90-100, they slow down for their milestones. It has cost us several matches. They do not care for the team and must adapt to changing circumstances.”
“One thing is for sure Until there is this ICC ranking, our players won’t change their techniques, and it will cost us matches.”
