Babar resigned while posting
Babar wrote, “I remember well when I was invited by the PCB to captain Pakistan in 2019. In the last four years, I have seen many ups and downs on and off the field, but with all my heart and passion I aimed to maintain the pride of Pakistan in the cricket world. Becoming the number one team in white-ball cricket was the result of the combined efforts of the players, coaches and management, but I would also like to thank the cricket fans of Pakistan because they supported me a lot in this journey.”
