Misbah thinks Babar Azam is ‘weakened’

Former Pakistan cricket team captain and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said it appeared that attempts had been made to “weaken” Babar Azam, the skipper of the national cricket team.

In an interview with Geo News, Misbah-ul-Haq said: “Anyone can see what kind of press conferences are being held these days and what topics are raised in those press conferences.

“When a decision needs to be made, it’s best if everyone involved – the players, the selection committee, and the board – sit down and come to a unanimous decision that is workable for all parties.”

The ex-captain added that taking a holistic view of the situation would be best when setup changes were needed.

“If you think changes are necessary, making them is no harm. However, all decisions should be made with a view to improving Pakistani cricket. Decisions made for other reasons or to put pressure on someone should be avoided because the whole team will be disrupted.

The former head coach went on to criticize the recent “experiment” carried out in the side selected for the home series against England and New Zealand, saying: “Cricket is in my blood so I keep up with the game wherever I am . I know what’s going on.” on.

“Off-Road Test Team”
Pakistan suffered a shutout in the three-game Test series against England in the national side’s first-ever clean win.

Meanwhile, the two-game series against New Zealand ended in a draw.

Misbah, who led Pakistan to its first-ever World Test title in 2016, said the national Test team was “off course” due to numerous changes.

He said: “It’s difficult to select a strong Test team and the changes to the selection have affected the country’s performance.”

“Pakistan has so little chance of playing in the test series,” he lamented.

Misbah said the four-player move would completely change the team’s batting and bowling performance.

“Our performance in testing was very off the mark,” he said. “Changes alone cannot bring results.”

However, the former head coach admitted that Pakistan is undoubtedly a formidable force in white ball cricket.

He also criticized the decision to separate captains for the Test series and white ball cricket. “You will mix up a lot of things by appointing different captains. This will stimulate competition between players and promote a political environment,” he concluded.
