Babar Azam Captaincy: Pakistan has lost back to back series on its soil in the last one year. He had to face defeat in the Test series against Australia and England. At the same time, England defeated Pakistan in the T20 series and New Zealand in the ODI series on their own grounds. In such a situation, many questions are being raised regarding the captaincy of Babar Azam. Many former cricketers have advised him to leave the captaincy. Now the name of former Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali has also been included in this list.
Basit Ali has advised Babar Azam to leave the captaincy of all the three formats. He has asked Babar Azam to focus on batting. Along with this, Basit has also suggested two names for the command of Test, ODI and T20 team. Basit Ali said in a conversation with Cricket Pakistan, ‘Babar Azam should give up the captaincy. If he leaves the captaincy, he can break the records made by many big players. His captaincy is affecting his batting and he should focus on batting at this time.’
Told Shaheen and Shadab better
Basit Ali said, ‘Shaheen Afridi should become the captain of Pakistan. If he stays fit, he can lead Pakistan in ODIs and Tests. Shadab Khan can be an option for captaincy in T20 International.’
