Pakistani Skipper desperately wants Imad Wasim and other senior players in Team
“ Captain Babar Azam feels there are way too many changes in the T20 Squad,” the English daily said while quoting a source close to the player.
Babar Azam against selection:
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.
Babar fans are bashing PCB Laptop selectors for ignoring the Skipper:
