Babar Azam
Speaking to the media after Pakistan's second Test against New Zealand, Babar Azam.

When a reporter queried Babar Azam about his status as Test captain, he gave an undiplomatic response.

It seems that no one can let go of their complaints over Babar Azam’s performance as Test captain. No Test match wins occurred for Pakistan in 2022, and in December of the same year, they were swept by England in a three-match Test series. While many have lamented Pakistan’s lackluster playing surfaces, numerous current and past players have also criticized Captain Babar for his leadership style. As Pakistan keeps putting up a poor performance in the format, Babar has nowhere to hide.

Babar gave a journalist an honest response to a query on the future of his Test leadership after the just-concluded second Test against New Zealand.

“Anything you want to be done, your crew will do it with a grip. The Pakistani squad is bound by a pact of brotherhood. (There are rumors circulating that your influence over the Pakistan Cricket squad is dwindling and your friendships inside the team are breaking down) “, the reporter commented.

“Since Shahid Afridi’s arrival, he has switched the vice-captaincy in one-day internationals to Shan Masood. Even the Test captaincy may be taken away from you soon, it has been reported “His comment was as follows.

Babar’s response was as follows: “When the captaincy is up for grabs, only you, sir, will know who’s getting it. This is of no interest to me. In the field, it is my responsibility to get results and inspire my teammates to do the same.”
