Shahid Afridi vs Gautam Gambhir: Gautam Gambhir made a statement on the poor performance of Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022 (T20 WC 2022). He had called Babar Azam selfish. Gambhir had said that if Babar is not able to score runs as an opener, then he should send Fakhar Zaman up. Gambhir had also said that Babar should think about the team here instead of thinking about himself. Now former Pak cricketer Shahid Afridi has retaliated on this statement of his.
When Shahid Afridi was talked to on Sama TV on this remark of Gambhir, he said, ‘After the tournament, you will ask Babar Azam to speak something on him (Team India) because he will also go home,’ Afridi said. Also said that, ‘Criticism is always there, but you should be careful in choosing words. You should choose words that act as advice for the player and people can understand it.
Afridi also defended Babar Azam during this period. He said, ‘Babar has given many match-winning performances so far. The regularity with which he scores runs, few Pakistani batsmen have been able to do. He is not playing according to the expectations this time, that is why he is facing criticism.
Babar Azam scored just eight runs in three innings
Babar Azam has been out of form since the Asia Cup 2022. In the T20 World Cup 2022, Babaz Azam has been able to score only 8 runs in the last three matches. Against Team India, he was out without opening an account. He could only score 4 runs against Zimbabwe. Even against a team like Netherlands, his bat did not work. In this match too, he returned to the pavilion after scoring 4 runs.
