Babar Azam is one of the best batters in the world at the moment and the kind of form that he has found himself in, the world has obviously been in awe of the explosive Pakistani opener. However, magic happens rarely and what follows with that magic is a boatload of questions. Ever since Pakistan’s defeat in the Asia Cup finale, multiple questions have been raised against Azam.
The fans believe that Babar Azam may be undoubtedly one of the best batters in the world but his decisions as a skipper has hurt Pakistan and not all the experts who have been close follower of Pakistani cricket or even ex-cricketers of Pakistan themselves have been pretty harsh in their assessment of Babar Azam’s captaincy.
Here is what happened to Pakistan in Rawalpindi
Playing New Zealand in Rawalpindi, Pakistan was all over the place as they were drubbed by the Blackcaps and there was no reprieve for them from the clutches of a fall-back and New Zealand showed them no mercy whatsoever, leaving them with a pretty bitter taste in their mouth.

Former Pakistani wicket-keeper, Kamran Akmal had reasons to believe that Babar may be one of the finest batters in the world but being a part of that thinktank that actually needs a cool and calm to prevail, that is somehow all over the place for the Pakistan skipper for the time being.
This is what Kamran Akmal had to say about Babar Azam
In an interview to Cricket Pakistan, Kamran said, “Speaking of their mistakes, they deflect and accuse us of criticism. But our focus is on their captaincy, not their performance. We’re not blind to their abilities. “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.”
Babar Azam would be hoping to dissuade the fans of their belief that he isn’t the best man for the job but at the end of the day, his batting flair has been absolutely impeccable.
