In this time’s World Cup, runs have not come off the bats of the captains.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s condition is worst
New Delhi. This time the T20 World Cup being played in Australia is something different. Apart from the reversal and rain, the flop show of the captains has also brought it into the limelight. Not one or two but most of the Super 12 teams are not getting runs from the bats of the star captains. From Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam to Temba Bavuma of South Africa, this list is very interesting. Host Australia captain Aaron Finch’s name is also included in this.
First of all, let’s talk about Australia’s captain Finch. Now the team has played a total of two matches while one match was lost due to rain. In these two matches, a total of 44 runs have been scored from his bat while he plays in the team as an opener. In the first match, he was dismissed after scoring 13 runs, while in the second match, he returned after playing an unbeaten innings of 31 runs. In this innings too, he could hardly make runs against the Sri Lankan bowlers.
Talking about Kane Williamson, there is only going to be disappointment here. After playing two matches, he has only 31 runs in his account. 23 runs have been his highest score. These runs were scored against Australia, while playing with Sri Lanka, he could score only 8 runs.
England captain Joe Butler, who is counted among the most explosive openers in the world. Even after playing two matches, their defeat is bad. This maestro has scored only 18 runs so far. His highest score is only 18 runs. In the match against Ireland, he returned without opening an account.
The defeat of South Africa captain Temba Bavuma is also not good. After playing 3 matches, he has only 14 runs in his account. During this his biggest score has been 10 runs. He remained unbeaten on 2 runs against Zimbabwe. When he returned after making 2 against Bangladesh, he could only make 10 while playing with India.
In the list of captains, the worst condition is seen in Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam. Only 8 runs have come out of this player’s bat so far. The best score of the Pakistani captain who has played 3 matches has been 4 runs. Babar could not open the account against India, scored 4-4 against Zimbabwe and Netherlands.
