The newly appointed chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team, Inzamam-ul-Haq has shown enormous faith in Babar Azam’s captaincy. After the Men in Green failed to win the finals of the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup last year, there were question marks on Babar’s future as captain but PCB is in no mood to remove him from the position and Inzamam too confirmed the same while revealing Pakistan’s squad for the upcoming Asia Cup.
Speaking on the matter, the former cricketer mentioned that Babar is doing a good job and he will be backing him in all three formats of the game. However, interestingly, Inzamam also added that he has no power in choosing or removing the captain as it doesn’t fall in his domain.
“See, lot of changes in captaincy is not good. I think Babar is doing great captaincy, and when I was chief selector before, Sarfaraz Ahmed was not captain of all three formats, but he became captain of all three formats later. So, I feel, there should be one captain of all three formats, if he plays in all three formats. So, he should know how he has to take his players forward. But, this captaincy doesn’t come under my domain,” Inzamam said while addressing the press as quoted by Hindustan Times.
We have selected players with a focus on the World Cup: Inzamam
Pakistan didn’t make a lot of changes to their ODI squad as PCB announced the final list of players that will participate in the Asia Cup 2023. Speaking about the squad, Inzamam stated that the players will be closely monitored in the tournament and then a decision on their World Cup squad will be taken.
“We have selected players with the focus also on the World Cup and hope that the team brings laurels to the country,” Inzamam added. Meanwhile, the 53-year-old has also expressed his desire to see team director Micky Arthur and head coach Grant Bradburn continue with the national team.
