When Pakistan were eliminated from the World Cup, the legend said, “Five players are guilty…” blamed captain Babar

Pakistan cricket team

New Delhi: Pakistan has been eliminated from the 2023 World Cup. The Pakistan cricket team, which secured the title, had a very disappointing performance in the 2023 World Cup. They are already out of the running for a place in the semi-finals before their last league game against England. Now only one question arises in the minds of Pakistan fans: What mistakes did the Babar Brigade commit? Former captain Rameez Raja, who was chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has responded. He also defended Babar Azam’s captaincy.

Pakistan eliminated from the World Cup

Rameez Raja said that the Pakistan team played poorly throughout the World Cup and there was no single reason for it. Nor can it be said that Babar Azam was a bad captain. Rameez Raja said, “Pakistan’s 5-6 match-winning cricketers were out of form in the 2023 World Cup.” What can a captain do when so many players are out of touch? The star players’ poor form further compounded Babar Azam’s problems. However, Rameez Raja did not mention the name of any player who played poorly in this tournament.

Babar Azam World Cup Runs

Babar Azam has scored 282 runs at an average of 40.28 in the first eight matches of the 2023 World Cup. His highest score is 74 runs. Rameez Raja also mentioned the reasons for Babar Azam being captain and not being able to play big innings. He said, “Babar was overloaded with batting.” Due to this, he couldn’t even show his natural game. We tell you that the Pakistan team managed to win only four of their first eight matches of this World Cup. His ninth game was against England. But even before this game happened, Pakistan’s semi-final hopes were dashed.

Names of Pakistani cricketers are nowhere in the top 10 list of batsmen who scored the most runs in the 2023 World Cup. Mohammad Rizwan is Pakistan’s top scorer who had scored 359 runs before the game against England. Rizwan was 13th in the list of batsmen who scored the most runs. Among the bowlers, Shaheen Afridi took 16 wickets and Haris Rauf took 13 wickets. But both are also not in the top five list of bowlers who have taken the most wickets.
