Also, Former Cricketer Gautam Gambhir slams Babar Azam for his captaincy

Former India opening batter Gautam Gambhir was critical of Babar Azam ‘s captaincy. During Pakistan’s must-win game against Netherlands in the T20 World Cup on Sunday. Pakistan had lost their first two games to India and Zimbabwe respectively. And needed a win over the Netherlands to stay in contention for a semi-final berth. Pakistan bowlers stepped up under pressure, restricting Netherlands to a paltry total of 91/9. In reply, Pakistan lost the wicket of Babar early. Before Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman took Pakistan closer to the target.

Rizwan dismissed on 49 while Zaman on 20. Who was making a comeback into the side after an injury lay-off, had perished earlier.

Gambhir stated that Babar should have put the team’s needs first, adding that he might have requested Zaman to open the innings instead of himself. Even though Pakistan finally won the match after a few setbacks.

Gambhir continued, “It’s easier to become selfish, especially when you’re the team captain. “In my opinion, you should put your team before yourself and send Fakhar Zaman up the batting order if nothing goes according to plan. This is known as selfishness, and it is simple to be one as a captain. Babar and Rizwan can easily start Pakistan’s innings, breaking numerous records. In the commentary, Gambhir was cited as saying. “If you want to be a leader, you have to think about your team.
