Lahore: Pakistan captain Babar Azam in a virtual press conference in response to the comments of former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar regarding the lack of stars in the national team said that all players give their 100%.
Babar Azam, 26, said he would not discuss the matter with Shoaib Akhtar or comment on the matter. Babar Azam said that I think Shoaib Akhtar may not think so but all the players are giving their 100%, I think you should ask Shoaib Akhtar who is a star and who is not, I I can’t argue or comment. Babar Azam said that despite Pakistan’s defeat against England in the last ODI, there were many runs on the scoreboard.
“If we talk about batting, the ball was coming at double speed,” he said. We were trying to form a partnership, the longer we stayed on the crease, the better for us because then we could have finished the innings well, I first partnered with Imam-ul-Haq and then with Mohammad Rizwan. And established a good partnership. I think the score was enough, we could have scored more runs but in the end we lost a lot of wickets together.
“Our batting in the first two matches disappointed us,” he said. We lost the opening wickets in the first ten overs due to which we could not get momentum. I have said before that we lost the match today due to bowling and fielding. Babar Azam vowed to continue supporting his players in difficult times.
“Waqar Younis is working with all the bowlers. I don’t think the bowlers were bowling at their line and length. The bowlers gave excellent performances in our recent home and away series, bad on everyone,” he said.
Days come but I will support my team. We will try to sit down and discuss our mistakes. When you sit down and talk, it makes things easier. I will stand behind my team and the more I do, the better for the team. ۔ “Our bowlers have won a lot of matches for us and will still give performances,” he said.
