Babar Azam Blames Poor Bowling, and Fielding for Loss Against Australia

Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, attributed their loss to Australia in the World Cup 2023 to subpar performance in bowling and fielding. While Babar acknowledged the efforts of the bowlers and spinners in the later part of the first innings, he highlighted fielding errors and poor bowling in the initial overs as contributing factors to the defeat.

When discussing batting issues, Babar pointed out Pakistan’s inability to establish a substantial partnership.

Despite a promising start with the opening pair of Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique, who achieved a notable 134-run partnership, Pakistan struggled to maintain momentum and lost crucial wickets at regular intervals.

The team managed to score 305 runs, falling short of the massive 368-run target set by Australia.

In their batting innings, the Australian team displayed dominance by setting a formidable total of 367 runs, the highest score ever recorded against Pakistan in the World Cup. Despite Shaheen Afridi’s remarkable performance with five wickets, Pakistan couldn’t contain the Australian onslaught, resulting in a 62-run defeat.
