Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at current captain Babar Azam. He has questioned his decision-making ability which led their defeat in the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series against England. England’s captain Eoin Morgan scored an explosive half-century. The hosts chased down a record target of 196 to beat Pakistan by five wickets.
“Babar Azam looks like a lost cow to me. He is out there, not knowing what to do. It is important for him to take decisions on his own so that it could help him become a better captain in the coming times,” Akhtar said on his YouTube channel.
“Babar will need to understand that the chances coming his way are not going to happen for the rest of his life, so he needs to make the most out of it,” he added.
Shoaib Akhtar also criticised the Pakistan team and its players for their vulnerable and confused nature.
“Pakistan team are playing in a bio ‘insecure’ bubble, where each player is insecure. No one has an idea about whether they want to become a good captain or a good brand.
England enjoyed a 1-0 lead in the series as the first match had ended in no result due to rain. It will now face Pakistan in the third and final T20I on Tuesday.
