He believes Babar Azam can be made better once flaws are pointed out and identifying his weak points.
“If Babar has been identified as Pakistan’s captain in at least two formats of the game, then it’s incumbent upon the PCB to help him become the best captain he can be. This can be achieved by identifying any weaknesses in his leadership qualities and by good mentoring,” said Sohail in his blog for Pakpassion.net.
Aamer Sohail seems afraid and says it shall be make sure that Babar do not makes the similar mistakes Misbah used to do during his captaincy.
“But if Misbah is to be Babar’s mentor, then we have a problem because he was himself criticized for being a defensive captain. The onus is on Misbah, to be honest about his own deficiencies as a captain and to make sure that Babar Azam does not make the same mistakes he made, especially when it comes to making sure that the younger players are given good chances to ensure a brighter future for Pakistan cricket,” he added.
He maintained that the batting issue can be resolved one the batsmen contribute to put a score of 300 or above.
“The only issue, as always, will be with our batting but if they can put up scores of 300+ then they will give their team a very good chance of dominating the home team,” he concluded.
