Babar Azam Finally answers to Shoaib Malik’s Controversial Comments

The speculation presented by veteran all-rounder, Shoaib Malik, was disregarded by Pakistani captain Babar Azam, who noted that the new team captain has no influence over team selection.

Malik's remarks were echoed after Pakistan's shocking loss in Zimbabwe's hands when the two sides met last week in Harare on the second T20I.

Babar called for the underlined "debate to stop now in a conversation with reporters. In every press conference, the same thing is reiterated that I have no control over selection. On the field, you will see that I handle it all. I select XI to play. Management has the input. As a captain, I know my duties."

Azam said he had no problems with the current Head Coach, Misbah ul Haq, in response to Malik's claim that the Team wants a new coach. "I have none of the coach's trouble. That's the PCB domain. Team management supports each player entirely, so I'm happy," he said.
