Babar Azam left the leadership of Pakistan taking responsibility for the failure of the ongoing ODI World Cup. Not only for one-day matches, but also for the three formats of international cricket, this batsman announced that he will no longer lead Pakistan’s national team.
Babar Azam announced his decision on social media on Wednesday. However, he also made it clear that he will continue to play for Pakistan in all three formats as a specialist batsman despite stepping down as captain. He also said that he will help the new captain and the team to move forward with his own experience.
Babar expressed his desire to continue as captain despite Pakistan’s defeat in the final league match of the World Cup against England at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. But he changed his mind back home. However, it is not known whether he took this decision himself or the Pakistan Cricket Board forced him.
Babar Azam-led Pakistan lost all five matches in the first round of the current World Cup. As a result, the World Cup winning team of 96 could not reach the semi-finals. The Pakistan team played very badly in the whole tournament. Babur’s reign ended because of him.
