While talking to a local television channel, Shahid Afridi said that Babar Azam is not yet a match-winner. Nevertheless, Afridi also praised the Pakistani skipper while explaining that he is the number one batter in the world right now.
Shahid Afridi Feels That Babar Azam Is Yet To Prove Himself As A Match-winner
While explaining his perspective Afridi said, “No doubt, Babar is the number one player in the world, and he is the pride of the Pakistan cricket team. However, one thing that stops him from being named along with the likes of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli is his finishing ability. Babar has not yet proved himself as a match-winner.
Pakistan’s white ball vice-captain Shadab Khan in a recent interview also backed Babar Azam. The leggie while defending his captain said, “As a nation, we are not valuing Babar for what he is worth and are pressurising him. At the end of the day, he is huma. We should respect him the way the world respects him. I am surprised when people doubt him as a captain or a leader. He is Pakistan’s biggest player. Our nation should respect him the way we respect him in the team.”
