“We Are Waiting for Miracles”, Shahid Afridi on Babar Azam’s Captaincy

Former Pakistan captain, Shahid Afridi, recently shared his thoughts on Babar Azam’s captaincy in the ongoing 2023 World Cup in India, expressing concerns about the team’s performance.

In an interview with a local media channel, Afridi emphasized the critical role of a captain’s leadership and its impact on the overall team dynamics.

Afridi believes that when a captain is actively involved and proactive on the field, it inspires the entire team to step up their performance. Drawing from his own experiences, he recalled how captains like Mohammad Yousuf and Inzamam-ul-Haq significantly boosted team morale and energy levels through their active leadership.

Afridi also stressed the importance of strategic captaincy, including proactive field placements and aggressive gameplay, especially in crucial moments. He acknowledged the challenges and pressures that come with leading the national side, highlighting the mixed public reception that captains often face based on the team’s performance.

Looking ahead to Pakistan’s upcoming match against South Africa on October 27th at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Afridi emphasized the team’s need to regroup and show a more determined and proactive approach to succeed in the tournament.
