Pakistan’s dream of winning the 20-20 World Cup 2022 got shattered on 13 November. England defeated the Men in Green by five wickets to lift the World Cup. All Pakistani fans were hoping to see skipper Babar Azam with the trophy after the final. But, they failed to bring the glory back to Pakistan.

However, Babar Azam failed to give a good start to the team as they lost against India and Zimbabwe respectively. Then, the star Pakistani batter managed to guide his team to the final. But, he failed to cross the finish line against England. Now, Mohammad Amir came up with criticism over Babar Azam’s captaincy during the whole tournament.

“Agar aap bol rahe ho toh usko poora bhi karo.” – Mohammad Amir on Babar Azam

While speaking on 24 News HD, Mohammad Amir praised Pakistan’s bowling unit. But, he criticized Babar Azam for his treatment towards Mohammad Nawaz after the India clash. He said: “Hamaari bowling ne poore tournament me sabse achhi bowling ki hai. Koi team hamein khulke nahi maar saki. Ye credit jaata hai hamaare bowlers ko.”

“Yes, Nawaz ka mujhe khud samajh nahi aaya. Pehle match ke baad dressing room me video ban rahi hai ki tujhe fikar nahi karni, tu mera match-winner hai. Uske baad poore tournament laga hi nahi vo batsman khel raha hai ya bowler khel raha hai.” Amir said. The Pakistani pacer also said that Babar should have shown more trust in Nawaz as he promised him after the Indian clash.

“Ya toh aapko apne players pe trust nahi hai, ye sirf kehne ki hi baat hai. Agar aap bol rahe ho toh usko poora bhi karo. Nawaz Pakistan T20 League me pehla over karta hai. Thoda toh trust show karo uspe. Nawaz ne kuch matches aise jitwaaye hain ki aap soch bhi nahi sakte ho. Aaj vo kar sakta tha. Jis wicket pe seam ho raha hota, vahan spinners zyada dangerous hote hain. Toh mujhe samajh nahi aayi ye.” Mohammad Amir concluded.
