‘Still where he was four years ago’: Pakistan veteran spots no difference in Babar Azam’s captaincy

T20 World Cup: Babar Azam's Pakistan, and the skipper himself have been under immense scrutiny, as this year they have won only 5 matches out of 16 played.

Former Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik launched a scathing attack on the current one, and said that Babar Azam has not evolved as a captain in the last four years. These remarks have come after the PAK vs USA match that the Asian giants lost on Thursday.

“This captaincy talk, I would like to go into its depth. You [Babar] have set a blockage in your mind, that is the problem. If you have decided that Shadab [Khan] has to bat at a certain number, and Azam [Khan] and Iftikhar [Ahmed] have to bat in the last overs, and you do that exactly, these are the blockages,” said Malik while talking on a Pakistani channel, quoted as saying by Geo Super.

“The most important thing which needs to be fixed is that Babar’s captaincy from four years ago and now, I cannot see any difference. If someone is improving then you give them time because the results will be seen in the long run but in Babar’s case, as a leader, he is still where he was four years ago.”
