Former Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik advised Babar Azam to relinquish the captaincy role in order to have more focus on his batting. The statements come after there was much speculation and controversy over the personnel changes and having a new captain across all formats.
“Babar Azam is a great batter but we do injustice by putting his leadership qualities and batting ability on the same scale. This will help (stepping down from the role) Babar Azam make more records on an international level as the pressure on him will be limited to his batting,” Malik said while speaking on the Geo News programme, ‘Score’.
