According to a media report, Babar has already discussed his future with former cricketers, journalists and some close friends. It is heard that many have advised him to leave the captaincy in all three formats. As a result, the speculation that he will step down from the leadership after the World Cup is gradually increasing. If somehow Babar steps down, the chances of Shaheen Shah Afridi becoming the captain are very likely. Wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan is also a strong contender for white ball captaincy. Opener Imam-ul-Haq can be the captain of the Test format.
Babar Azam’s tenure as Pakistan cricket captain is over. This is known through trusted sources. Babar Azam, who leads the team in all three formats, is set to give up his captaincy. His captaincy career has had several successes and failures. In 2022, the Pakistan team reached to the T20 World Cup final. But they got knocked out in the finals. Pakistan became the number-one team in ODI cricket. It is one of Pakistan’s successes under his leadership. Pakistan has defeated India once in the history of the Cricket World Cup.
