This Pak Cricketer Questions Babar Azam’s Return As Captain, Says He Is No MS Dhoni

The Pakistani cricket team has always been an unpredictable team, though they have recently lost the T20 series to England but still their fans expect them to perform well and win the ongoing T20 World Cup.

The series against England also marks the comeback of Babar Azam as the skipper, earlier he was the skipper of Pak in all the formats but after the team’s poor performance in the ODI World Cup 2023, Shaheen Shah Afridi was appointed as the skipper of the T20 team.

However, just on the basis of poor performance in one T20 series and PSL, Shaheen Shah Afridi was removed from captaincy and Babar Azam was again made the captain in the shortest format.

During a show, Pakistani cricketers Ahmed Shehzad and Imam-ul-Haq got into heated debate as the former came heavily on Babar Azam and slammed him for selecting team on the basis of friendship. Ahmed also said that Babar Azam is no MS Dhoni that he was brought back and PCB did wrong with Afridi.

Ahmed Shehzad said, “Speaking of Babar Azam, there is friendship. Look, he is carrying players from a long run. The players are out of form for a long time. It doesn’t look good. If I count the number of matches, you’ll realize players don’t get that long run. If there were any other captain, he wouldn’t have carried players for 35-40 games. He should have thought about himself.”

He further said, “We don’t play cricket to win bilateral series but to win ICC events. Did we win any event in the last 4-5 years? If we didn’t win, I would say there are gangs, friendships, and tola with an agent who has been manipulating cricket for the last 4-5 years.”

When Ahmed Shehzad was told that all those players were selected under the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed, he said, “They [Sarfaraz Ahmed and Co.] produced the results, won the Champions Trophy. It justifies, you also win this event and justify. However, you’ve got a longer run, one captain doesn’t get five events. You were removed and then brought back. I understand if you were MS Dhohi that you were brought back. But no. It’s wrong with Shaheen, you made him captain for two matches and then you removed him.”

Do you agree with Ahmed Shehzad?
