Shahid Afridi: Babar Azam does not give the impression of being a match winner unlike Virat Kohli and Rahul – Magazine Creations

Shahid Afridi has some advice for Babar Azam. He wants Babar to stay at the crease until the end of the match. Afridi admires Indian cricketers like Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for doing this. They don’t just score goals; The former Pakistani cricketer said that they are making sure that their team wins.

Babar Azam is a senior player in the Pakistan national team. But in this World Cup, his big goals have not led to victories. Afridi spoke about this on Sama TV channel. According to him, fans expect Babar to win matches for Pakistan. But this does not happen.

In the 2023 ICC World Cup, Babar made three fifties. But Pakistan lost every time he crossed the fifty mark. He scored 50 goals against India, 74 goals against Afghanistan, and 50 other goals against South Africa. Pakistan lost all these matches.

On the other hand, Pakistan won when Babar scored less. He made only 5, 10 and 9 runs in matches against Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Afridi believes Babar should turn his good starts into big results. This could help Pakistan win. Babar’s wicket was a crucial moment against India. His team struggled after his exit. He was also out having made slow fifty against Afghanistan and South Africa.

“I am a fan of Babar”

“I am a Babar fan, make no mistake. We say Babar is a top player. Reaching this level is one thing, sustaining your performance once you reach that level is even more difficult. When Babar Azam comes in to bat, we should feel that we are going to win it for us,” he said. Afridi to Sama TV: “But this feeling does not come.”

Interestingly, Babar Azam is the world’s No. 1 ODI cricketer, as per ICC rankings, closely followed by Indian opener Shubman Gill. Other players in the top five are Quinton de Kock, David Warner and Rohit Sharma.
