“He still doesn’t know how to do captaincy after four years” – Former Pakistan cricketer launches a scathing attack on Babar Azam’s captaincy after 5th T20I defeat

Earlier this week, Pakistan suffered a disappointing loss in their fifth and final match of the T20I series against New Zealand. The match was held in Rawalpindi, and Pakistan lost by six wickets.


Despite New Zealand missing some of their key players, including Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Glenn Phillips, among others, the series ended in a 2-2 draw, with one match being abandoned due to rain.

Babar Azam and his team have faced criticism from all sides, particularly for their defeat in the final T20I. At one point, New Zealand were struggling at 26/3, and then 76/4 in the 10th over, but they made a remarkable comeback and managed to secure a win with four balls to spare.


Kamran Akmal, the former wicketkeeper-batsman of Pakistan cricket team, launched a scathing attack on Babar Azam after their defeat, claiming that the star batsman lacks the ability to lead the team effectively.

According to a quote from Cricket Pakistan, Kamran Akmal accused Pakistan of deflecting and blaming critics for their mistakes. He emphasized that his criticism was directed at Babar Azam’s captaincy skills and not his performance as a player.

Kamran stated that even after four years, Babar does not know how to effectively lead the team and make important decisions such as which bowler to bring on at what time.


“He (Babar Azam) still doesn’t know how to do captaincy after four years – he doesn’t even know which bowler to give to ball to at what time. It’s no surprise that they lost when they continued to make the same mistakes. We didn’t control our errors, and that’s why they emerged victorious,” said the former Pakistan wicketkeeper batsman.

The former keeper blamed Pakistan’s repeated mistakes for their defeat and criticized their failure to control their errors. Kamran also expressed his dissatisfaction with the choice of bowlers during the closing overs of New Zealand’s run-chase in the fifth T20I.
