Babar Azam is one of the best batsmen of Pakistan. He is also the captain of three formats of Pakistan cricket. This Pakistani cricketer performs the responsibility of the team on the one hand and runs with the bat on the other hand. Mohammad Amir made explosive comments about this Pakistan captain recently. Shaheen Afridi, one of Pakistan’s pacers, has expressed his anger at this comment.
About Babar Azam a few days ago, Mohammad Amir said, “I am a team player. And as a player, I should take the opponent’s wicket, score runs and try to win the match. Babar Azam has the same responsibility. On one hand, score run, try to win the match. And from this point of view, the responsibility of the last batsman of the team is also the same. But how much Babar fulfills his responsibility is a big question.”
Shaheen Afridi gave an interview to a Pakistani TV channel recently. Afridi also talked about Babar Azam there. According to him, Babar Azam is one of the best cricketers in the world. Therefore, Afridi thinks that every cricketer of the country should show proper respect to this captain of the Pakistan team.
Referring to Mohammad Amir’s statement, Afridi said, “What Mohammad Amir said about Babar Azam is quite surprising. Babar Azam is our captain. We should support Babar Azam whenever we play against any team anywhere. And that is our first responsibility. We should Presenting him as ‘King’. Babar Azam is the number one cricketer in the world. And as our captain we should respect him. But if we don’t respect him then what will others do?”
Meanwhile, Pakistan Super League (PSL) is going on in Pakistan. Shaheen Afridi is playing there for Lahore Qalandars. He is also the captain of the team. On the other hand, Babar – Amir played for the same team (Karachi Kings) but in the current season they are playing for different teams. Peshawar Zalmi has added Babar Azam to the team for this season. So even if the two teammates were in the same team in the previous season, they are not playing together in the current season.
