Shoaib Malik, a cricket player for Pakistan, discussed the controversy with Babar Azam as team captain and suggested that he should resign freely.
“Babar Azam is a great batter but we do injustice by putting his leadership qualities and batting ability on the same scale,”Malik said while giving an interview to a local News Media Show.
According to the former captain, four to five talented players are needed in the team for success now, as opposed to 20 to 25 years ago when one player might win the match with his outstanding performance.
The 41-year-old batsman claimed that he would have disassociated himself from the leadership position and focused on his batting if he had been in Babar’s position. Then he advised that Babar’s friends persuade him to step down as captain.
“This will help Babar Azam make more records on an international level as the pressure on him will be limited to his batting,” Malik said.
