Babar Azam has no threat of losing the captaincy
Babar Azam is waiting for the tour of New Zealand to captain Pakistan in three formats. For the first time since taking charge in three formats, he told the media that there was no pressure from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Babar Azam has no threat of losing the captaincy as PCB assure Babaz Azam a long term captaincy even if he loses the match.
Babar Azam told reporters in Lahore on Friday (November 20th) that the PCB had given him the captaincy in a long-term plan. The 26-year-old batsman said he has gained experience as a captain in white-ball cricket. He also learned a lot from former captains Azhar Ali and Sarfaraz Ahmed.
“We are playing drawn cricket,” Babar said. We are gaining a lot of confidence from the win which will help us do better on the New Zealand tour. In international cricket, you will always be under pressure. I was still under pressure when I became a captain in white-ball cricket. You have to accept the challenge. ‘
‘I have learned a lot from white-ball cricket and cricketers like Sarfaraz Ahmed and Azhar Ali. The team depends on me and will try to take responsibility while batting. The real fun of cricket is playing under pressure. I enjoy playing cricket. ‘
The PCB has given full freedom to Babar Azam, who is going to captain in three formats for the first time in the New Zealand tour. Babur added, ‘I was not threatened that my captaincy would go away after the loss against New Zealand. Management has given me full confidence and I have full freedom in decision making.
Noting that there is no rift among the cricketers in the team, the Pakistan captain added, “There is no grouping in our team. Everyone supports and respects everyone. There are a lot of young people in the team and there is no problem in a grouping. Everyone sits together and supports teammates. There is no group, the whole team is a group.
