Good or Bad Babar Azam is Still Captain of Pakistan Team?

Babar Azam will remain Pakistan Captain after WC? 

The T20 World Cup 2024 has been a rollercoaster ride for literally every team, where some teams managed to maintain their success, and some other teams failed miserably. Pakistan after two losses and one win finds itself in a dangerous position of getting knocked out. Pakistan has a solid group of players but in this edition of the World Cup they failed to perform and that’s why now they need prayers and a big win to secure a place in the playoffs. Let us look at the details of Babar Azam will remain Pakistan Captain after WC:

However lot of questions were raised regarding Babar Azam’s captaincy and his lack of ability to guide Pakistan into Super 8s. Babar Azam has been an exceptional player for Pakistan where his captaincy was always noted as best. Even in the 2022 T20 World Cup Pakistan was a finalist and missed out in the final step to become World Champions back then.


Now fast-forward to the 2024 T20 World Cup, it seems like Pakistan won’t even make it out of the group stages with their poor run of form. As of now, Pakistan is in third place with two points from three games.

Babar Azam’s Mistakes in Critical Situations: While PCB is in Full Support for Babar Azam?

While Babar Azam remains at the helm, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is expected to make significant changes to the team in response to their current struggles. The team will be built around Babar Azam. Where they will focus on getting the right players for the upcoming tournaments.

Babar Azam will remain Pakistan Captain after WC:

No doubt Babar Azam is a great player and a captaincy, and his record speaks for itself. During his time with the Pakistan team, Babar Azam has always focused on getting the right results for his team.


Babar Azam is one of the most successful captains of Pakistan. Played more than 100 matches as a skipper, Babar has the best win records for Pakistan. He is amongst the few who have led the Pakistan team in more than 100 matches. In the T20I format is Babar has played most of the matches as a skipper. Where in 84 games, he has registered 47 wins and 29 losses, while seven matches ended in no result.

The numbers are obvious. Although Babar is an excellent leader, the Pakistani skipper is occasionally under strain. Due to his over-reliance and lack of standout performances. We must remember that, despite Pakistan’s poor performance in the T20 World Cup 2024. The team was just one win away from winning the 2022 T20WC under Babar’s leadership.

Pakistan are Still Alive in the Race: Can They Make it to Super 8?

The outcome of the upcoming matches and net run rate will determine Pakistan’s route to the Super 8s stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 (NRR). Three things have to happen in order for Pakistan to get into Super 8. Where Ireland has to beat the USA on June 14, India needs to beat Canada on June 15. Pakistan needs to beat Ireland on June 16. With these results, Pakistan and the USA will each have four points after four games.


Pakistan’s qualification will mostly rely on their NRR in light of this circumstance. Therefore, to raise their NRR over that of the USA. Pakistan must strive for a sizable margin in their victory over Ireland. A simple victory would not do. This difficulty emphasizes how crucial it is to win and to do so convincingly. Pakistan may maintain their hopes of making the World Cup by improving their chances of making it to the Super 8s with the correct set of outcomes and a convincing victory.

Conclusion: What to Expect from Babar Azam Captaincy in the Future?

The backing from the PCB is evident towards Babar Azam and it is understood that even if they failed to qualify for the Super 8 they will still continue to support Babar Azam. As the skipper and will try to learn from the mistakes from this tournament. Even though they still have a chance of making it to the playoffs the Pak fans and PCB are really optimistic about making it to the playoffs.
