Wasim Akram and Gautam Gambhir:

Wasim Akram and former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir advised Babar Azam to quit PSL captaincy.

Speaking to a local sports platform, Akram advised Babar Azam, stressing that as an elite player,

He should focus on playing, scoring runs, and enjoying the game.

He said that I had given an idea to Babar Azam. Some years ago not captain league cricket. [You are a] big player, take your money, play your game, score runs, go home. And then move on to the next event Pakistan’s captaincy. Is fine but the league brings extra pressure for no reason.

Former Indian cricketer, Gautam Gambhir:

Former Indian cricketer, Gautam Gambhir agreed with Wasim Akram and highlighted the impact of captaincy pressure on Azam during the World Cup.

I think now you will see the best of Babar Azam, you will see a completely different Babar Azam because I chose Babar Azam before the World Cup 2023, he said. I told him that he would be the batsman of the tournament but the pressure of captaincy let him down.

Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir believes that a different Babar Azam will appear against Australia after stepping down as Pakistan captain. Gautam Gambhir said that Babar Azam failed to perform in the recently concluded ODI World Cup 2023 due to the pressure of captaincy. The right-handed batsman scored 320 runs at an average of 40 in nine matches at the mega event, including four half-centuries.
