Misbah-ul-Haq is not happy with the criticism of Babar Azam!

Pakistan’s former skipper Misbah-ul-Haq while talking to reporters in Lahore, expressed his disappointment over speculations around Babar Azam’s captaincy.

He said that the way the player was targeted was not right.

The former head coach Misbah said: “No matter who is the captain, a change should only be made after assessing things thoroughly. Decisions should not be taken just for the sake of putting pressure on others.”

He went on to add that Babar’s comparison to Indian batter Virat Kohli is unfair as he has played way more cricket than the Pakistan skipper.

Misbah-ul-Haq said: “It is unfair to compare Virat Kohli with Babar Azam. Kohli has played a lot of international cricket, meanwhile, Babar has just started his career.”

He added that the two batters should be compared when both of them have played the same amount of cricket. “Kohli’s achievements are unmatchable at the moment,” he said.

While lauding Babar Azam’s consistency with the bat, Mishbah said, “Babar is a classy player. His performance has been excellent so far and he is among Pakistan’s greatest batters.”

“Babar is among the top five players in the world, in terms of rankings, every year because of his quality,” he added.

Talking about Pakistan’s repeatedly bad recent Test performances, Misbah said that “Pakistan has done well in white-ball cricket but the same can’t be said about Test cricket.”

“Babar Azam is not solely responsible for Pakistan’s performance in Test cricket. There is a lack of planning and proper team selection in Test matches,” he added.
