Rashid Latif, a former wicketkeeper-batsman, praised Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, in a recent interview, emphasising the tremendous change he has undergone in his capacity as a leader. Latif praised Azam’s development as a batter and as a skipper, noting a significant improvement in his managerial skills.
Azam’s remarkable accomplishment of constantly scoring substantial runs even while carrying the weight of captaincy was highlighted by Latif, a former cricketer-turned-expert. Latif offered the following commentary to Cricket Pakistan regarding the excellent adjustments Azam has made to the team’s dynamics:
“Babar’s career trajectory in Pakistan cricket is illustrative of a truly excellent player. It is admirable that he has been able to score runs with such high levels of consistency. Babar surpassed all expectations by not only maintaining but also greatly improving his form in the face of doubts about his performance after becoming captain. This progression highlights his growth as a captain. His team selection decision-making, which was previously viewed as a weakness, has much improved. Babar has undergone a significant transformation from the player he was just two years ago. He has successfully learned from his past errors.
Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, will play a crucial role in the upcoming cricket season. The team will look on him to set an example both on and off the pitch as the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 and the impending Asia Cup 2023 get near.
