Pakistan’s limited-overs captain Babar Azam wants to learn from the aggressive captaincy of legendary cricketer Imran Khan and improve his English apart from cricket to be the ‘total leader’ like this all-rounder.
Babar Azam, who is already commanding the T20 squad, was also appointed as the captain of the ODI team last week. Azam, who was among the top batsmen in the world in all three formats last year, replaced wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed as the ODI captain for the 2020-2021 season.
Azam said, “Imran Khan was a very aggressive captain and I want to be like him. It is not an easy task to captain the Pakistan team but I am learning from my senior players and I have a captaincy experience right from the time of playing with the under-19 team, ”Azam said.
You should be able to talk to the media and you should express yourself easily in front of people.
The captain of Pakistan’s limited-overs team said on Monday, “Apart from focusing on batting these days, I am also learning English.” The twenty-five-year-old Babar said that he is not satisfied with Pakistan’s ranking in international cricket. He said, “I am not happy with where we are and I want to see this team up in the ranks.”
Babar Azam hoped that the T20 World Cup would be held in Australia this year as he wanted to lead his team to the International Cricket Council competition.
Asked about going to England for the series of three Tests and three T20 international matches in July amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Babar Azam said it would require a lot of hard work and planning to make the players feel comfortable and safe.
He said, “Visiting England will not be easy. The safety of the players is of paramount importance and the tour will be possible only if proper arrangements are made. ”
