Fakhar Zaman rejected Skipper Babar Azam advice
Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam and opening batter Fakhar Zaman have expressed their thoughts about the match against New Zealand.
In a video released by the Pakistan Cricket Board, Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman discussed their excellent partnership in the match. Babar Azam said that he had the belief that if Fakhar stayed on the crease, they would achieve their target, as whenever Fakhar plays such innings, Pakistan wins 90% of the matches.
They also mentioned that when Babar came in for batting, Fakhar told him that the pitch is good for batting, and they should build a partnership. They initially had no concerns about rain since the sky was clear, but suddenly clouds appeared, and they had to make a plan on how to approach batting. However, Fakhar had already started the work before Babar arrived.
In the video, Fakhar Zaman asked Babar Azam what he was saying after every boundary on the field. Babar replied that he was telling Fakhar that after hitting one six h3 should not try another rather wait for the loose ball to hit big after hitting a boundary.
He further confessed that Fakhar didn't hear his advice and continued to hit sixes throughout the match.
