Babar Azam Asked To Step Down As Pakistan Captain, Mohammad Rizwan’s Shot Selection Questioned By Shoaib Malik

If Babar Azam steps down as Pakistan captain, it could pave the way for new leadership, which would bring fresh ideas and possibly a more aggressive approach to the game. This might also relieve Babar of additional pressures and allow him to concentrate and fully focus on his batting skills.

Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam has been urged to step down by former cricketer Shoaib Malik. A series of disappointing performances have triggered discussions about his suitability as the leader of the team. The disappointing result against India in the T20 World Cup seems like the final nail in the coffin.
“I have been saying for a long time, please leave captaincy. You are a class player, and you will only be able to show your class when you do not have additional responsibilities on you. If Babar stays away from captaincy, it will be good for him,” Shoaib Malik said on Ten Sports. “People keep talking about Babar and Rizwan’s strike rates, so you brought in Saim Ayub,” Malik said.
“Yesterday, it was a 120 chase; why were you trying to improve your strike rate yesterday? The platform was set in every manner. If, as a leader and a batter, your brain does kick in in these sorts of situations, when will it? I am forced to say today that the core of this team, in the T20I format, I think we have to stop backing them,” Malik added.
Malik also publicly questioned the shot selection of wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan.
“I didn’t understand that shot from Rizwan. They brought back their main bowler to pick up a wicket, and Rizwan has been playing for so long and captaining in PSL. He should be familiar with the situation and put up his hand and say this is my match,” he said.
Prominent voices within Pakistan cricket have suggested a change in leadership could reinvigorate the team. Babar’s leadership style, while steady, has been criticized for lacking the aggressive, innovative edge seen in other successful international captains.
