After a disappointing performance in the World Cup, Babar Azam, head coach Grant Bradburn and team manager Mickey Arthur have found it difficult to maintain leadership. News Cricket Pakistan.
According to the source, the discussion between the board started before the match against England. Babar Azam’s chances of continuing his captaincy in white-ball cricket are slim. However, some quarters suggested to management committee chairman Zaka Ashraf that Babar should continue as captain in the Test series against Australia. A decision is expected to be taken in the coming days.
At the same time, the board is thinking of hiring local coaches instead of relying on foreigners. The former cricketers have been contacted in this regard.
Meanwhile, at the end of the match yesterday, Babar had to answer questions about giving up the captaincy. He was asked whether he himself wants to leave the captaincy? The Pakistan captain answered this question before leaving Eden.
4 wins out of 9 matches. And the loss in the last match to England in Eden by 93 runs. At the end of the match, Babar said about the captaincy, we made many mistakes in the World Cup. They should be corrected. However, there are some positive aspects. I will discuss them. I still want to be the captain. I want to create a good team again with my experience.
It is clear from Babar’s answer that he himself is not thinking about leaving the leadership. But what the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) thinks about him is still not sure.
However, the Pakistan captain blamed one match for his poor performance in the World Cup and that was the loss against South Africa. Babar said the loss to South Africa changed everything. If we had won that match, the next picture would have been different. Before that we were playing well. That one loss gave us a big blow to our morale.
However, Babar also admitted that Pakistan have made many mistakes in all three departments: batting-bowling-fielding. The whole team has to pay the price. Babar said, we made many mistakes in batting, bowling and fielding. It must be admitted. We gave 20-30 more runs per match. caught The spinners were unable to pick up wickets in the middle overs. It is difficult to win a competition like the World Cup if you cannot take wickets in the middle overs. We have to correct those mistakes.
Since the 2011 World Cup, Pakistan has failed to reach the semi-finals of three consecutive World Cups. Before the start of the World Cup, many cricket pundits were seeing Pakistan in the last four. But Babar disappointed everyone.
