Nov 2, 2021: Pakistan captain Babar Azam says the team cannot afford to be complacent at any stage of the T20 World Cup as his team will play against Namibia today (Tuesday).
In a video shared by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the talented young batsman outlined his plans for the national cricket team and encouraged them to perform better. The Pakistani team will secure its place in the semi-finals after today’s victory against Namibia, but the captain has warned the team against becoming complacent.
“In a tournament like this, we have to show our best in every game and perform consistently.

Babar Azam said that the expectations of the fans to perform in every match are a source of confidence for him and his aim is to keep his fans happy by helping Pakistan win every match. The star cricketer said that his goal is to build a strong Pakistan team that can beat any team in the world and keep the flag of Pakistan high.
Azam said he has always wanted to be the best and is still looking to achieve what he dreamed of as a young man.
The 27 year-old batsman scored 2332 runs in 59 T20I innings, which is the highest in the first 59 T20I innings of his career. His consistent match-winning performance for the country has made him the center of the fans’ hopes.
Azam said it was his responsibility to meet the expectations of the audience. “They always expect us to perform in every game and I get confidence from them. I always want to keep my fans happy and satisfied with my performances and help Pakistan win the match, ”he added.
Under his captaincy, Pakistan is unbeaten in the ongoing T20 World Cup. So far, the Green Shirts have topped the table, beating India, New Zealand and Afghanistan.
