Gautam Gambhir on Babar Azam: For the Pakistan team, the T20 World Cup 2022 (T20 WC 2022) semi-finals are almost closed. The team’s poor batting has been the biggest reason for this. The middle order batting remains a problem for the Pakistan team, along with this the opening pair has also become a big cause of concern. In all the three matches of Super-12, this pair has looked colorless. Although Mohammad Rizwan has scored some runs against the Netherlands, but captain Babar Azam has been a complete flop in all three matches.
Babaj Azam has been able to score only 8 runs in the last three matches. Against Team India, he was out without opening an account. He could only score 4 runs against Zimbabwe. Even against a team like Netherlands, his bat did not work. In this match too, he returned to the pavilion after scoring 4 runs. Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has given him important advice regarding his poor performance.
‘First think about the team’
Gautam Gambhir said during the commentary in the Pak-Netherlands match, ‘In my opinion, first of all you should think about your team and not about yourself. If anything is not going according to your plan then you should send Fakhar Zaman up in the batting. It is very easy for a captain to be selfish. But if you want to be a good leader then first you have to think about your team.
Fakhar Zaman has already opened for the Pak team. He has also been a good success as an opener. If he opens with Mohammad Rizwan, then the Pak team will also get a left-right combination which can create trouble in the powerplay for the opposition team.
Pak team’s performance was flop
Pakistan’s team looked completely colorless in the T20 World Cup 2022. After losing the first match to the Indian team, the Pakistan team had to face a backlash against Zimbabwe. After this, the Pakistan batting was also seen struggling against the Netherlands. At present, the Pakistan team is almost on the verge of being out of the semi-final race. In the coming days, only some big upsets can get him an entry in the semi-finals.
