Since 2016, Pakistan has become irresistible in T20 cricket compared to the other two formats. However, in recent times, Pakistan has lost some of its rhythms. However, the Pakistan T20 captain thinks that Pakistan will soon regain top position in the T20 rankings.
After the 2016 T20 World Cup, Pakistan has reflected itself in a new way in the T20 format. Its impact has also been seen in the ICC T20 rankings. After 2016, Pakistan was at the top of the T20 rankings for 26 consecutive months. Where he played 33 matches and won 29 matches. The winning percentage is 7.6. However, Babar Azam has come down to fourth place in the ranking of 2020.
Babar Azam, the T20 captain, is not too worried about his fourth place. He said that Pakistan has created the best combination of players ahead of the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. Babar Azam is hoping that Pakistan will soon regain its lost position in t20 rankings.

“Yes, we have lost a few matches and unfortunately our rankings have dropped,” he said. What happened was that we did some experiments and several players tried. Now we have created our combination, which is a combination of young and experienced.
“I am sure we will do well in the T20 series against England and improve our rankings,” he said. “If the World Cup is held on schedule, I am confident that our team will do well.”
“As a professional cricketer, I hope the T20 World Cup will be held as scheduled,” he said. As the captain of Pakistan, I really want the World Cup not to start late. Because this will be my first World Cup as captain. However, the decision is in the hands of the authorities.
It is to be mentioned that the PCB removed Sarfaraz Ahmed and made Babar Azam the captain in T20. Since taking over the captaincy, he has led Pakistan in five T20s, winning two and losing two.
