Sack Babar Azam: Says his countrymen

Cricket world cup

Any team in the Cricket World Cup can be damaged by one defeat. Think of what three losses in a row can accomplish! The Pakistan cricket team, led by Babar Azam, is experiencing the same thing. Afghanistan delivered another severe blow to the 1992 World Cup winners before they had even had a chance to bounce back from their defeats to Australia and India. On Monday in Chennai, Afghanistan easily defeated Pakistan’s 283-run target thanks to a confident display by its bowlers and hitters.

Pakistan, under the leadership of Babar Azam, is on the verge of losing the World Cup after such a devastating defeat. Former players from Pakistan attacked captain Babar Azam and other players for their subpar play during the competition. Babar was held accountable for Pakistan’s string of losses against India, Australia, and Afghanistan, regardless of who was at fault—Wasim Akram, Misbah ul Haq, Ramiz Raja, Rashid Latif, Muhammad Hafeez, Aaqib Javed, Shoaib Malik, Moin Khan, or Shoaib Akhtar.

After the eight-wicket loss in Chennai, Babar made the unwise decision to give a bat to Afghanistan’s opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz.

However, the gesture has not been well received in the local cricket circles, which has intensified calls to remove Babar from the captaincy.

According to news agency PTI, Aaqib stated that Shaheen Shah Afridi ought to take Babar’s place as Pakistan’s captain in the white ball formats.

“Shaheen is Pakistan cricket’s best hope for the future. The former pacer claimed that Babar had not demonstrated his ability as a captain in white ball formats.

Aaqib, the director and head coach of the PSL team Lahore Qalandars, where Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen, and Haris Rauf play, also chastised every other player for missing the party against Afghanistan, with the exception of Rauf.

“The players’ body language and fielding (against Afghanistan) was very unconvincing.” They simply didn’t seem to be able to hold 283—a substantial total—to defense. “The fielding was appalling and the bowling was mediocre,” Akram remarked.

Remarkably, Akram added, there had been no fitness evaluations for Pakistani players for the previous 12 months.

How can one expect to perform well in modern cricket if they are not fully fit? How do you stop boundaries or accept catches?Some of our players fielded it in a way that suggested they were indulging in a diet high in rich foods and dishes,” he remarked.

Misbah claimed that Babar’s field placements and bowling changes were abysmal, and that his captaincy left much to be desired.

“By using Haris Rauf in the power play when there are just two fielders outside the circle, he has wasted him. After getting hit in his opening over (against Australia), Haris lost all self-assurance.

“He should be brought on with at least a sweeper at cover and three other fielders on the leg-side deep,” Misbah stated.

Paradoxically, Misbah and Akram were instrumental in persuading the PCB to name Babar captain for all formats, benching Sarfaraz Ahmed following the World Cup 2019.

Former Pakistan all-rounder Razzaq claimed that Babar was interfering with other players’ games and mentioned that Shafique was batting aggressively against Bangladesh and that he altered the game once Babar took the field.

“When Babar bats slowly it has an adverse effect on other batters who then can’t play their natural game and this is affecting Pakistan’s strike rate in this tournament,” Razzaq stated.
