Pakistan will face England in the last test match series, and in the last match, the host will try to avoid the clean sweep in the longest cricket format at home. However, the host lost Rawalpindi’s opening clash and Multan’s second encounter. English side played the test match aggressively, and after the loss, questions were raised against Babar Azam & Co.’s approach with the red ball.
In a pre-match press conference, Babar Azam was asked whether his captaincy role impacted his performance in the longest format of cricket; after this question, Babar wasn’t pleased and asked the reporter an encounter question: Do you think it is impacting my performance? Babar asked.
After this antagonistic conversation, the reporter explained that she meant the team’s overall performance, after which the skipper explained that the team had faced many injuries recently that had negatively impacted team performance.
“We dominated in both Tests. We struggled because our players got injured, and it disturbed our combination. That’s why we didn’t get the desired results,” Babar said.
Further speaking on this note, the skipper stated we were good in both games, but we couldn’t finish well, and we are working on our performance under pressure, and this is not happening because of one player.
Both games were in our hands, but we couldn’t finish. As a team, we have to work on playing under pressure. It isn’t as if we are losing because of one player. We always try to play our best XI and make the best use of it,” said Babar further added.
Pakistan will face England in the last test encounter on Sunday, and the host will try to win the last test.
