Babar Azam’s Aim As ODI Captain
After Azam recently took over the management of the ODI side alongside the T20I leadership, which he took over later in 2019, he has already set goals. At the top of his list of priorities is helping Pakistan improve the ODI charts again after slipping to number 6 in the annual update of the MRF Tires ICC team rankings.
“I have led both the U19 and T20I teams in the past,” Azam said during a media interaction. “When I look at our rankings in formats, it’s unacceptable to me and my job is to put it in the top three. PCB thought I was ready (for the job) and they gave it to me. I am ready.”
Azam said he wanted to develop into an attacking captain in the form of Imran Khan, who led Pakistan to the glory of the ICC men’s World Cricket Championship in 1992. “If you’re a captain, you have to be a bit cool, you.” To take your team with you, you have to methodically deal with your plans against the opposition to get them out, “he said.
“You have to be a little controlled, you may feel angry inside, but you have to be in control. I learned this from cricket under 19 years old. You may need to reduce aggression in the ground and give players confidence when you give your players 110% support, they’ll do it well. I want to be an attacking captain. I want to adopt the Imran Khan style. “
The 25-year-old is the No. 1 batsman in the MRF Tires ICC men’s T20I player ranking for punches. It ranks 3rd in ODIs and 5th in tests. Azam is confident that the captain’s additional responsibility will not affect his performance.
“I’m a fan of challenges,” he said. “Captaincy and batting are a little different. When you play batting, just focus on the batting and don’t think about Captaincy. Only when you finish batting do you think about team performance. My goal is to continue to be the same To perform, incidentally, also as a captain. “
