Babar Azam’s captaincy particularly in Test matches wasn’t impressive at all during the previous year. Under his leadership the green shirts lost home series against the visiting Australian and English sides. Moreover, Pakistan suffered a white-wash at home for the first time when the Ben Stokes led side beat them 3-nil. Hence, another series defeat at home against the Kiwis or any other side later in the year is likely to cost Babar his captaincy at least in the longest format of the game.
