Pakistan Cricket Team has been called out after their dismal T20 World Cup run. The 2009 World Cup winners bowed out in the first round of the tournament. In a video doing the rounds, Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed were seen all at sea during a practice session. 

The two batters couldn’t get bat to ball as a young unknown pacer was seen troubling them with pace. This has now raised more questions and concerns about Babar Azam and his likely future as the captain of the T20I format. 

Watch the video here:

It has come to light that PCB Chief Mohsin Naqvi is set to take the call after meeting with Gary Kirsten. Pakistan began the tournament with two successive losses to the United States of America and India before beating Canada. The washout between USA and Ireland meant that Pakistan crashed out of the tournament despite a win over Ireland. 

Mohsin Naqvi sheds light on Babar Azam’s future as T20I skipper 

Pakistan Cricket Board chief Mohsin Naqvi spoke to the media and shed light on Babar Azam’s future as the skipper. Naqvi Said “I have asked them Kirsten and Mahmood to come here as I want to talk to them in person and in detail based on Kirsten's report on the World Cup” 

Mohsin Naqvi also said “Kirsten has given a very detailed report on the team and it will help us a lot to chalk out our future course of action. No decision taken so far related to Babar Azam. One former player has submitted a very comprehensive report on what needs to be done to improve cricket. But I will take no decisions out of anger or based on what is being said on social media."

The PCB chief also said “Decisions taken out of haste and anger generally lead to more complications and I don't want that in our cricket. I have been in the board for four months and I am looking at everything believe me there is a lot to be done to improve things within the PCB besides the team. But I don't want to jump to conclusions and make hasty decisions”

Ahmed Shehzad has come out and slammed the comparisons between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam. The former opening batter spoke to Bol India News and said “Comparisons are fine when it comes to appearances, but let's be honest, Virat Kohli has gone far ahead with his career and records”

The former opening batter also said “There's no one like Virat Kohli, let alone me or anyone else. Many like to compare Babar Azam with him, but even those don't make sense, In my opinion, Virat Kohli is leaving behind a huge legacy for India and for the rest of the world. Good luck to the Indian cricket team to fill his shoes,"
