Still believe he is the best man to lead Pakistan: Ex-India coach on Babar Azam

Srinagar: Former India cricketer and coach Sanjay Bangar has backed Babar Azam to continue as Pakistan cricket team captain, despite his side getting knocked out of T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan lost to the United States (USA) and India in their first two matches of the T20 World Cup after which their fate was dependent on the match between the USA and Ireland, which was washed out in Florida and the home side steered to the Super 8.

Pakistan had both matches, USA and India, in their grasp but they couldn’t emerge victorious as against the USA, they failed to defend 15 runs in the last over while against Rohit Sharma’s side, they had to chase 120 runs but couldn’t do it.

Bangar, while talking to Star Sports, argued that there is still no one better than the 29-year-old to lead the Pakistan team while stating that he needs to be decisive as a captain.

“I still believe he is still the best man to lead Pakistan. He has to be a little bit more assertive in terms of the usage of the DRS as well. You can gauge your personality. It seems that he is letting others come into his way of decision-making. So, as a captain, you have to be decisive. That’s a quality that can be slightly more assertive. That can help his decision-making,” Sanjay Bangar told Star Sports.

“There is no alternative as well, because Pakistan tried to do away with his captaincy after the 50-over World Cup debacle. But they had to go back to him again. It clearly shows that there are not a lot of potential captaincy candidates. So stick with Babar, give him the team, give him a good support system around him so that Pakistan can do well in the next World Cup,” Bangar added.
