Babar Azam, the current captain of Pakistan needs to step up and score big hundreds. He can knock around and wait for loose deliveries. He needs to play an anchor role, a sheet-anchor to support just a few big-hitting players in Pakistan’s current world cup squad. With Shadab Khan making runs, and also Iftikhar Ahmed taking the run-rate from 5 runs per over to almost 6 per over. But consistent big scores by Babar Azam will help Pakistan more and more to be in the race. England is almost at the bottom of the points table, and with their NRR still good, they’re next to Netherland from bottom to top in the table.
Sri Lanka played superbly, and completely outplayed England, and enjoying currently a fifth position. Pakistan is settled at sixth and have to come from behind to be in the race by planning better. just a 20, a 30, or a 50 plus in fact by any top order batter, would not help Pakistan anymore if they bat first. Tomorrow is another big game for Pakistan, and putting some big scores by Babar Azam and the top order like 100 plus would definitely help Pakistan against the strong side South Africa and more other teams.
Pakistan is left with 4 matches, from which even if they win three, they would be in the race. Babar Azam needs to play within his limitations. He’s one of the best batter in the world. If he can bat for a longtime, a score of about 300 plus would give something for the bowlers to defend. Sunil Gavaskar told that Pakistan lacks good spinners, pointing the way Shadab Khan and Usama Mir bowling currently.
He said, if Pakistan wins the toss, they should choose to bat first, irrespective of what happened previously with Afghanistan. Afghanistan did their home-work very well and they by losing toss, did not lose hope. Babar Azam opted to bat, but could only score a 50 plus score, which won’t help Pakistan anymore. He scored his first 50 against India in this world cup, and the second against Afghanistan. Both matches, Pakistan lost just because of poor planning.
When Ramiz Raja asked Babar Azam why did he used spinners in the death overs, Babar said the ball was turning at that moment. So, what? A pacer could have put pressure on Afghanistan and Babar should have finished the quota of his top bowlers, without worrying about the last three death overs.
If Pakistan have to stay, and to not leave early, they should come with plan A, B, and C. That’s just enough, but not easy to apply. Tomorrow is another big game for Pakistan, and putting some big scores by Babar Azam and the top order like 100 plus would definitely help Pakistan against the strong sides.
Poor captaincy along with poor fielding and also poor shot selection by Babar Azam is the problem for Pakistan to work upon, and comeback with some out of box captaincy and better field placements. Use the best bowlers at any time if the scorer is troubled more by the opposition.
