Pakistani captain Babar Azam is badly trapped. Whatever Babar said after the 8-wicket defeat in the sixth T20 match at the hands of England, he himself has come under target. Pakistan had given a target of 170 runs to England, which the English team achieved 33 balls already at the loss of 2 wickets. With this, the English team has leveled 3-3 in the 7-match series.
After the loss to England, Babar said that he felt that this score was correct. The way the wicket was falling, his attempt was to give a target of 170 runs and it happened, but later it seemed that 10 runs were short. Babar said that after this, the way Phil Salt batted and what he did in the first 3 to 4 overs, he should be given credit. The bowling was excellent, but the English batsmen made a comeback.
powerplay turning point
The way he used the powerplay was the turning point. Babar said that the players need to take responsibility and show how good he is. After the match, Babar has come under attack on this statement. In fact, he praised the English batting in the powerplay, while he himself is playing slow and his slow batting is constantly being questioned.
Babar himself starts slow
Babar scored 87 runs in 59 balls in this match, but he was seen struggling in the powerplay. He scored 25 runs in 19 balls in the powerplay. Whereas Pakistan scored 48 runs for 2 wickets in the powerplay. On the other hand, if we talk about England’s powerplay, then the team had scored 82 runs for 1 wicket in the first 6 overs. While opener Phil Salt scored 45 runs in 17 balls in the powerplay.
