Pakistan captain Babar Azam is facing intense criticism following the national team’s early exit from the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2024. Many fans and critics are demanding his resignation as captain, putting his leadership under a microscope.

Babar Azam, however, has made it clear after the World Cup that the decision to continue or end his captaincy lies with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). “The PCB appointed me as captain, and it will be their decision to remove me or continue with me,” Babar stated.

Will PCB remove Babar Azam?

Since Babar’s statement, fans and critics have been urging PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi to make a decision regarding his captaincy. During a media interaction in Lahore on Thursday, Naqvi addressed the situation.

Naqvi mentioned that no decision has been made yet regarding Babar Azam’s future as captain. He is currently consulting with former cricketers to gather their input before making a final decision. “There is, however, no decision taken so far related to Babar Azam,” Naqvi told reporters.


“I’m only speaking to those former cricketers who are interested in the betterment of Pakistan cricket,” he added, without specifying which former cricketers he was consulting.

Naqvi revealed that one former cricketer, whose name he did not disclose, has already provided a detailed report on the shortcomings of Pakistan cricket.

Although there is no official confirmation, several reports suggest that former players like Moin Khan, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, Saqlain Mushtaq, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, and Kamran Akmal might be among those consulted.

As fans await a resolution, the future of Pakistan’s white-ball leadership hangs in the balance. Babar Azam, one of the team’s most consistent performers, now faces the challenge of either adapting to retain his captaincy or stepping aside for the team’s greater good.
