Babar Azam Continues To Be The Charm In The T20 Series After World Cup 2019

Babar Azam T20 Series

If you’ve followed the World Cup 2019, you’d know that Babar was the star batsman of the tournament. The life saviour for Team Pakistan in the match against New Zealand where Babar managed to score a century. With this century, he even surpassed Virat Kohli who is his idol. Babar became the second batsman to score the fastest 3000.

Recently after the World Cup 2019, Babar joined Somerset and played his debut match on July 18. He gave a very impressive performance in the match, playing in partnership with Tom Banton. They scored 98 runs in just 8.5 overs making it a win for Somerset.

The role of our Pakistani star in chasing the score given by the opponent team was prime. It was a crucial chase with 9 runs per over, needing 182 to win. However, partnership of Babar and Tom Baton did the job for the team. Somerset won the match with only 2 wickets down.

Tom Baton in the closing of the match praising Babar’s skill said that the partnership with Babar was an experience. Since Babar is the best batsman in the world at T20 cricket. 

” it was good to stand at the other end and see how he goes about things,” said Tom.

This isn’t where Babar stopped becoming the hero. In his match against Hampshire. The star player managed to score a half century in the match giving the total target of 172 at 3 wickets. Babar’s contribution to the score was as great as 5 runs short in a century. He scored 95 from 61 balls. Making that score with nine boundaries and three sixes was an absolute incredible sight to watch.

Anyhow, his performance was for a losing cause as the match was eventually won by the opponent team. But Babar surely earned more fan with his unbeaten half-century becoming the standout performer of the match. Peter Trego and James Hilderith were however the other two who contributed their score to the match, that it 35 and 28 runs respectively.

Babar Azam seems to be consistent with his performance throughout proving himself to be an asset of Team Pakistan. His differentiating factor is how determined and focused he is to achieve his target. Becoming like his idol Kohli and he has proven himself with the fastest 3000.

However, Babar wasn’t the only star player of Team Pakistan who made us proud. Mohammad Amir also earned himself the title of highest wicket taker of the tournament in World Cup 2019. He is also one of the players who has impressed the world with his on field skills.

Whenever Amir is in the ground, he manages to make the players of the opponent team nervous. Though, in the recent developments, the 27 year old fast bowler has announced retirement from Test Cricket. This announcement has not been taken well by the nation. But Mohammad Amir says he wants to focus on his performance in the white-ball matches. Some legends have criticized his decision and expressed shock. On the bright side some have supported his decision too.

Anyway, all we want is for our stars to keep making us proud. What do you think about Babar’s performance? Let us know in the comments.

inzamam annouces retirement

On Wednesday Inzamam ul haq, the Chief selector of Pakistan Cricket Board stepped down saying that he does not further intend to continue as the Chief Selector of Pakistan. And has declared that his stepping down from this position would not keep him from accepting any other role in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Because he is still living the spirit to serve the cricket board of Pakistan.

Inzamam announced his decision at Gaddafi Stadium while addressing a press conference. He claimed that he is not seeking extension to his tenure which is likely to end on July 31.

He said that he has decided to not renew his contract with the PCB as the chairman of National Selection Committee. Also adding that the PCB should try a new face with fresh ideas and thinking as the ICC Test Championship, T20 World Cup and ICC World Cup are approaching.

His decision had been conveyed to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and Managing Director Wasim Khan, by Inzamam himself. He was thankful to them for  having the back of selection committee ever since they took over PCB.

Inzamam mentioned that the Young Players are now ready to perform excellently in all three formats as they have grown in experience.

Inzamam further said that he is aware that being a human he might have made mistakes in his rein but they were not intentional. And he would never destroy the career of any player. However, he also apologised to anyone who got hurt by his selection decisions but he has only kept the national interest his foremost priority.

Inzamam was satisfied over Pakistan team’s performance at the World Cup 2019. The reason being that the team had beaten both finalist and only failed to qualify for the knockout round because they were low on net run-rate.

Ehsan Mani’s management has decided to create a new national selection committee and does not intend to continue with the current one. But they have came to understanding that a new role would be offered to Inzamam and will not extend his current role in PCB, as per Inzamam’s wish.

Inzamam however, said that he will consider the role offered to him by PCB if it interests him.

During his tenure, Pakistan team gained top position in T20 rankings for the first time and won the ICC Champions Trophy both in 2017 under the captaincy of Sarfraz Ahmed.

New players such as Fakhar Zaman, Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Imam-ul-Haq, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Abbas, Usman Shinwari and Shaheen Shah Afridi made their international debuts. While Babar Azam on the other hand gained recognition as Pakistan’s batting mainstay in all three formats.

The ex skipper, Inzamam said he realizes that the team could have performed much better than it did during his tenure because he can see great potential in it. And he might have overlooked some deserving players but nothing was intentional. He hopes that the fans would be able to see this in his decisions.
