Pakistan Skipper Babar Azam breaks silence ahead of crucial tour against Australia

LAHORE - Pakistan Skipper Babar Azam breaks silence ahead of crucial tour against Australia.

Pakistan T20I skipper Babar Azam has said that he is not under any pressure and is confident of being able to handle the challenge in Australia, their next assignment.

The 25-year-old was named Pakistan`s T20I skipper following their whitewash under Sarfaraz Ahmed in the three-match series against Sri Lanka.

Babar served as the vice-captain during that series and couldn`t come with a decent batting performance as he contributed with scores of just 13, 3 and 27.

However, on the eve of the team`s departure for Australia, Babar said he seeks inspiration from modern-day greats Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli and wants to emulate them as captain in his first international assignment as a leader.

"People judged in three matches (against Sri Lanka) that my performance suffered because I was vice-captain," ESPNcricinfo quoted Babar as saying.
