ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s top batsman Babar Azam refused call to become the Captain of Pakistan cricket team?
Pakistan’s top-order batsman Babar Azam has said that he is more interested in scoring runs than leading the national cricket team.
Babar’s name is being considered as a replacement for current Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, after Pakistan’s miserable performance in the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup created significant backlash against the team.
The right-handed batsman, however, stated that he was not looking forward to a leadership role and was instead focused on scoring runs.
“I’ve never really thought about captaining Pakistan and have in all honesty only thought about playing for my country. I am not someone who craves being captain and am more interested in scoring runs for Pakistan,” said Azam as quoted byPakPassion.net link.
Babar believes that Sarfaraz has done a fine job but stated that the final decision, on changing captain, would be taken by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
