New Zealand beat Pakistan by 6 wickets in fifth T20
Former wicketkeeper criticized Babar Azam’s decisions
New Delhi. After being beaten by New Zealand in the fifth T20, former wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has questioned Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s decisions while blaming the defeat. Kamran said that despite being the captain for four years, Babar does not know how to handle this responsibility. They have absolutely no idea of what to do when. Kamran Akmal is the cousin of Babar Azam.
Targeting Babar Azam, Kamran Akmal said that if we talk about mistakes then we are criticized. Arguments are started combining captaincy and batting performance. Here we are talking about captaincy, not personal performance. We are not blind. Kamran Akmal said that Babar Azam does not know how to captain even after four years. They don’t know when to use which bowler. Kamran said, New Zealand was able to chase 193 runs easily because we could not control our mistakes. Pakistan made mistakes one after the other in the match.
‘PCB should demand answers’
Kamran Akmal said on his YouTube channel that when New Zealand’s two left-handed batsmen were at the crease, then what was the point of getting leg-spinner Shadab Khan to bowl? Off-spinner Iftikhar Ahmed should have been given the ball in his place. The Kiwis thrashed Shadab’s balls fiercely. Kamran said that if the fourth T20 had not been washed away by rain, Pakistan would have lost the series 3-2.

Taking a dig at the Pakistan Cricket Board, the former wicket-keeper batsman said that if he is the PCB chairman, he should seek an answer from the team on this failure. Let us tell you that in the fifth T20, while batting first, Pakistan scored 193 after losing 5 wickets. In response, New Zealand achieved the target by losing 4 wickets in 19.2 overs with the help of Mark Chapman’s blistering century. The 5-match series was tied at 2-2.
