Let us tell you that in the post shared on social media, Babar Azam said, ‘During the last four years under my captaincy, I have seen many ups and downs, but I have always tried to preserve the honor of Pakistan in the cricket world. . Before the World Cup, under the captaincy of Babar, the Pakistani team became the number one team in ODI cricket. Babar had given credit for this to all the players. At the same time, Babar said in his statement that today I am leaving the captaincy from all formats of cricket. Surely, this is a very difficult decision, but I think this is the right time. However, as a player, I will continue to represent the Pakistani team on the global stage. At the same time, I will continue to support the new captain. On the other hand, Babar has thanked PCB for making him the captain.
