In order to take morale of “depressed” Babar Azam — Pakistan team captain — high after the Green Shirts’ disappointing performance and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 loss, the team’s director Mickey Arthur on Sunday said that It’s not a crime to make mistakes.
Earlier this week, reports emerged that disappointed by the behaviour of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and former cricketers, Azam is likely to step down as the captain of white-ball cricket after returning from India.
The reports further claimed that the skipper was facing pressure from fellow cricketers to step down from the captaincy’s role due to the team’s poor performance.
The Green Shirts failed to perform in the mega event and only won four out of eight games. They are currently in fifth position with a net run rate (NRR) of 0.036.
Speaking during the Geo News programme ‘Harna Mana Hai’, former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq said that Babar should quit the captaincy himself and make an example out of it.
