Babar doesn’t deserve a spot on the T20 team, says Virender Sehwag

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag recently criticized Pakistan captain Babar Azam following the team’s early exit from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

During the tournament, Babar’s performance was disappointing, as he managed to score only 122 runs with a strike rate of 101.66. His highest score was 44 runs against the United States.

Sehwag suggested that if the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decides to remove Babar as the captain for white-ball cricket, he should also be excluded from T20 International matches. Sehwag emphasized the importance of a captain’s role and implied that if Babar cannot make significant contributions, he should consider stepping down voluntarily.

In response, Babar Azam stated that any decision regarding his captaincy would be made transparently and would ultimately be up to the PCB.

Sehwag’s remarks have sparked discussions among cricket fans and experts about the expectations and performance of team captains in international tournaments. Babar’s response indicates his willingness to accept any decision made by the PCB regarding his future role as captain of the Pakistan cricket team.

As the cricketing community continues to analyze Babar Azam’s performance and leadership capabilities, attention remains focused on the PCB’s upcoming decisions and their potential impact on the team’s future strategies and selections.
