Abdul Qadir Patel gives bizarre advice to Babar Azam and team

Earlier criticizing the captaincy skills of Babar Azam, former captain Misbah-ul-Haq said, Babar Azam failed to perform under pressure during ICC tournaments.

Skipper Babar Azam received a piece of bizarre advice from PPP’s MNA Abdul Qadir Patel. While talking on the National Assembly of Pakistan floor, Abdul Qadir Patel questioned the team’s performance.

Qadir Patel said that Team Pakistan shockingly lost to an associate team like USA and later on against India eliminating the team from the initial stage of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Hence, advising the team on how to avoid criticism, Abdul Qadir Patel said that Babar Azam should hold a public rally and claim that he lost due to the American conspiracy against him. Patel advised Babar to ‘declare that a conspiracy has been plotted against him, write a letter, and then declare that the letter has been misplaced, as it would save him.’

His remarks alluded to the Cipher case concerning former Prime Minister Imran Khan. The team including captain Babar Azam has been receiving intense criticism from the public for their poor performance in the World Cup.

Earlier criticizing the captaincy skills of Babar Azam, former captain Misbah-ul-Haq said, Babar Azam failed to perform under pressure during ICC tournaments.

Having already lost two games in the ongoing T20 World Cup, Pakistan now faces a crucial juncture. The team must win their remaining matches to secure a place in the Super 8.

Speaking on a local sports channel, Misbah highlighted Babar’s inability to deliver in critical moments. “Babar Azam is playing his fourth World Cup as captain. When the pressure situation comes, he needs to prove himself,” he said.

The former captain added that Babar should have elevated his game, but now the team is almost out of the T20 World Cup.

Misbah stressed that personal achievements without handling pressure situations hold little value and that Babar has consistently failed to lead the team effectively in four World Cups since 2019.
