Babar Azam Lashed Out At Critics: Babar Azam is being heavily criticized for Pakistan's poor performance. Many former players believe that the pressure of captaincy has affected Babar's batting. On this, Babar angrily said that it is easy for everyone to give opinions sitting on TV.
The performance of the Pakistan team in the World Cup 2023 was nothing special. After a good start in the tournament, the team lost its rhythm and had to face defeat in four consecutive matches. Due to this shameful performance, the team has not been able to make it to the semi-finals yet. Cricket pundits and many former players hold captain Babar Azam responsible for the poor performance of the team and are criticizing him.
Many former Pakistani players like Moeen Khan and Shoaib Malik have openly criticized Babar's captaincy. These veterans say that the pressure of captaincy has affected Babar Azam's batting. That's why he is not able to score runs in the World Cup. On this, Babar got angry and gave a befitting reply to him and said that it is easy for everyone to give opinions sitting on TV.
Babar said, 'It is very easy to give opinion on TV. If anyone wants to give advice, they are welcome to call me directly, my number is known to everyone. Babar further said, 'I have been captaining my team for the last three years and I have never felt like this. The only thing is that I am not able to perform the way I should have in the World Cup, and that is why people are saying that I am under pressure.
The Pakistan captain further said, 'I do not believe that because of captaincy I am under any kind of pressure or feel different in any way. I give my 100 percent contribution to the field while fielding and batting. I think about how I should score runs and help my team win.
On being removed from the captaincy or quitting, Babar said, 'Once we go back to Pakistan or after this match, we will see what happens, but right now I am not focusing on it, my focus is on the next match. '
