After Pakistan’s dismal performance in the 2023 cricket world cup, Babar Azam will meet with the PCB Chief

After Pakistan’s dismal performance in the 2023 Cricket World Cup, Babar Azam will meet with the PCB chief. The rumor is that Pakistan Cricket Board captain Babar Azam will not willingly step down and will instead wait for a call before leaving after his disastrous World Cup campaign. Azam arrived in Lahore on Monday. Babar emerged from the facility surrounded by security guards with a dejected expression as he was greeted by his family at the Lahore International Airport. 

There are rumors that Babar will meet PCB president Zaka Ashraf this week and that he will make a decision on his all-format captaincy following the meeting. After an underwhelming campaign in which they lost five of the nine league games, Pakistan, the 1992 winners, were unable to advance to the semifinals.

Babar assumed leadership of the Test team in 2021 after being named captain of the white-ball team in late 2019. He has captained Pakistan in the current ODI World Cup, two Asia Cups, two T20 World Cups, and the current World Cup without taking home a trophy.

After the team’s appalling performance in India, there is disagreement within the nation’s cricket community on whether Babar should continue as captain or if alternate choices should be taken into account.

Former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja and former all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who had previously declared pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi was prepared to be Pakistan captain, are prominent figures endorsing him.

Zaka Ashraf, the head of PCB, has stated that he will speak with a few former players in the next few days before determining the best course of action, despite the heated discussion on social media and other platforms over whether or not Babar should be removed.

Pakistan will embark on two challenging trips in December and January, first to Australia and then to New Zealand.

Sarfaraz Ahmed, a batsman and wicketkeeper from Pakistan, Shan Masood, and Shaheen Shah Afridi are being considered as potential captains.

The PCB has two weeks to determine the team’s next course of action before they go for Australia in early December.
