Babar Azam has become the hated cricketer for former Pakistan players. He continues to face flak ever since the Men in Green lost the second match of the ICC T20 World Cup campaign to Zimbabwe by 1 run.
After losing to India by 4 wickets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, fans and legendary players were thinking of a more dominating performance from the Men in Green. They were clinical against India but lost the game in the final moments.
However, what turned out against the African nation was embarrassing. The bowlers played their part to perfection, and the restricted rivals at 130 in 20 overs.
What should have been an easy chase became a nightmare. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan departed early.
Shah Masood again tried his best, but his effort was not enough as Zimbabwe thumped the Asia giants by 1 run.
For former player Younis Khan, Babar is unfit to captain the national team despite being one of the best batters and a good person.
“We have been talking about Babar Azam’s captaincy for a while. If you repeat the same mistakes, it becomes a habit. Babar Azam is a top batter and is a good person. But leadership qualities aren’t there in everyone, and there’s no spark in his captaincy.”
