Pakistan are currently preparing for the semi-final of the ongoing 20-20 World Cup in Australia. On 9 November 2022, they will take on New Zealand in Sydney. However, they had experienced a difficult journey so far in the tournament to get qualified for the semi-finals. So, fans are hoping to see the Men in Green with a better performance against the Kiwis.
However, both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have failed so far in this World Cup. Both these players have failed to score significantly. So, fans and former cricketers have criticized them massively. Now, another cricketer, Mohammad Amir came up with a huge claim regarding both these openers.
Here is the shared video:

Mohammad Amir already criticized Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan earlier for their performances so far in the ongoing World Cup
Speaking of the video, Mohammad Amir was seen with other cricketers like Wahab Riaz. There, they were discussing both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Regarding that, Mohammad Amir said that both of them need to be changed. He said that both these players should bat in the middle order.
Amir also said that if not possible, then atleast try to remove any one of them from the opening slot for the betterment of the national team. However, Wahab Riaz did not like that as he said that Rizwan might find trouble performing like he managed to do in the opening slot. Speaking about their recent form, Babar Azam has scored 39 runs in five matches of the ongoing World Cup.
Mohammad Rizwan has scored 103 runs so far in the ongoing World Cup. So, fans have criticized these players as their strike rate has been the main issue. Previously, Mohammad Amir said that both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan only have a top ranking because they play against B, and C teams also. He took the names of Jos Buttler and Quinton de Kock. Referencing them, Amir said that those players do not play against B, and C teams.
