Wasim Akram is in favor of making ODI captain Babar Azam a Test captain. The file
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has advocated for the captaincy of the Test to captain ODI captain Babar Azam. He said that Babar Azam should be given the captaincy for a long time. There is a need for permanent captaincy and selection in Pakistan cricket. World Cup is to be held in 2023. In such a situation, the team needs a captain who stays till 2023. Babar Azam could be a better captain. But Mohammad Rizwan should not be made captain or vice captain.
The Pakistan Cricket Board is expected to announce a new Test captain in place of Azhar Ali for the tour of New Zealand on 11 November. Although Azhar will be included in the 35-member team. Pakistan have two Tests and three T20 matches to play on the New Zealand Tour.
He said in a conversation with a cricket website “If you ask me as a former player, I would like Babur to become Test captain. He is our future and can play for a long time. The PCB should then appoint him as the captain for a long time. So that there is no confusion in the team. “
Four-five captain is not good in dressing room
He said, “I am supporting Babur because I did not want to see his atmosphere in the dressing room again.” When we used to play, there were four to five captains in the dressing room. “
Kohli and Williamson are also top batsmen with captain
He said, “He is a better player.” Those who say that his batting will be affected by being made the captain of the Test team, should not believe him. Because he is a batsman and his job is to score runs. Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson are also captains and top batsmen as well. ”
Experiment to make Misbah ul Haq as head coach not successful
He said “The experiment to make Misbah ul Haq as head coach and chief selector was not successful. Because it did not see improvement in the team. I think we are stuck in the 90s mentality right now. I think some people play only to score their runs. Now it does not work. It should be learned by watching other teams as well.
