Babar Azam take stand against Chief Selectors

According to sources Babar told Wasim that Team selection was his main concern as he is the captain and is held accountable if the team doesn’t perform

The skipper, the report said, is of the view that some squad players did not get enough or any game time in the last series and, therefore, it was unfair to drop them altogether.

The national selection panel is under fire since the squads were announced for the upcoming tour.

Babar was in favour of Shan Masood’s selection for Zimbabwe Test series after failure of openers Imran Butt and Abid Ali in the home series against South Africa.

But the selectors chose to ignore him on the basis of just one bad tour of New Zealand

The paper further quoted the source as saying that Babar Azam was left “thoroughly disappointed”.

However, Mohammad Wasim has denied reports that there were any differences on the selection matters.
