Moving on from the tenure of the wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan battled Australia in the T20I series under the leadership of Babar Azam. Things didn’t turn out well for the top-ranked T20I team as it missed its core unit and was defeated 2-0 in the three-match series.
All this was recently highlighted by the former skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq who believes that it was unwise to remove Sarfaraz Ahmed right before the Australia tour. The cricketer turned expert said that the Karachi born held a prolific record in the shortest format of the game and throwing him out of the framework for such a tough series didn’t make any sense to him.
Inzamam feels that it was further unfair to have the rising batting sensation Babar Azam take the captaincy in such circumstances. He also didn’t like the idea of unleashing a lot of youngsters against Australia down under. Moreover, the 49-year old was shocked and rued the absence of the veteran all-rounders Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik who have been key to Pakistan’s success in the last two years of the 20-over cricket.
