LAHORE: Pakistan team faced a lot of criticism for their poor performance against Afghanistan.
Former players like Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar and Abdul Razzaq give their opinions on the team’s performance.
Razak surprisingly made the claim that there was a “direction” to the below-average performance, especially when captain Babar Azam came into the crease.
In the broadcast, Razzaq said that he was sad about the team’s performance, but wanted to ask why Abdullah Shafiq became defensive when the Imam returned to the pavilion. He ran into boundaries with Imam, but Razzaq said Babar suddenly became defensive when he came to the crease, claiming it was on instructions.
To support his claim, he said that Shafiq was dismissed easily and for one, he didn’t seem to know how to bat. It is clear that he took instructions from the captain. He said that the scoring rate of players with the captain inside the goal area clearly shows this.
