Mohammad Hafeez reveals the captaincy skills of Skipper Babar Azam

ISLAMABAD- Veteran all-rounder, Mohammad Hafeez, praised the captaincy skills of Pakistan’s all-format captain, Babar Azam. Hafeez said that Babar is the perfect choice for the captaincy role due to his strong principles and his extraordinary reading of the game. ------------------------------

Babar was announced as the all-format captain last year and has had a terrific start to his captaincy career. He recently became the first Pakistani captain to win his first four Test matches as captain, winning the series against South Africa and Zimbabwe. His ODI record is immaculate as well, having won four and lost one in the six matches he has captained.

Hafeez believes that Babar is the right person to take Pakistan cricket forward and he has already proved that he has the required skills to captain at the top level. Hafeez added that there is still room for improvement for Babar and he will get even better as he gains more experience. ------------------------------

Hafeez also rubbished the notion that Babar would lose his form once he becomes a captain. Hafeez said that Babar is one of the best batsmen in the world and his fundamentals of batting are so strong that no condition or pressure can deter him from playing his game.

The 40-year old also talked about England’s upcoming historic tour of Pakistan in October. Hafeez appreciated the tireless work done by the PCB officials and the government to bring back cricket to Pakistan and he was hopeful that this tour would open the gates for regular international cricket in the country.
