Misbah-ul-Haq, former Pakistani cricketer, has come to the aid of current skipper Babar Azam who has come under fire from media and experts following Pakistan’s poor performance in the Test series against New Zealand. He believes that it is not fair to make Babar the scapegoat for the team’s failure in red-ball cricket and that the decision should be made after deliberation from the selection committee and the board.
Misbah argues that calling out a player like Babar in public will only disorientate the team and hamper their performance, instead, everyone should sit together and make a decision. He says that If you put pressure on someone for any other reason, the whole team will be disturbed. It should not happen.
He highlights that Pakistan team is undoubtedly a powerhouse in white ball cricket and that Pakistan’s bowlers and batters are top in white ball cricket.
Misbah points out that Babar is being forced to become weak, which is not good, The kind of press conferences and questions being asked by Babar, everyone is watching.
Despite the struggles in traditional format of the game, Pakistan has been successful in white-ball cricket, and Misbah is looking forward to the 50-over World Cup later this year. He is confident that the team will perform well in shorter formats of the game.
