Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has stated that he has aspired to be the world’s best cricketer since he was a child.
Babar Azam stated in a video shared by the ICC, “I always wanted to be the top player; when I was young, it was my dream to be someone who is liked and supported by everyone as a cricketer.”
“I’m still on that quest,” he said, “trying to be more consistent and improve my performance.” “I’m always concentrating on my goal.”
Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has vowed to perform consistently and to give their all in the upcoming T20 World Cup matches.
The world’s number one ODI batter stated that the expectations of fans to perform in every game are a source of confidence for him, and he aims to keep the fans happy by assisting Pakistan in winning every game.
The star cricketer stated that his goal is to build a strong Pakistan team capable of defeating any team in the world and raising the Pakistan flag high.
Babar Azam stated that he has always aspired to be the best and that he is still striving to achieve his childhood ambitions.
The 27-year-old batter has scored 2332 runs in 59 T20I innings, the most scored by anyone in their first 59 T20I innings. His consistent match-winning performances for his country have elevated him to the top of fans’ expectations.
“It’s a responsibility to live up to the fans’ expectations,” Babar said.
“They always expect us to perform in every game, and that gives me confidence.” “I always strive to make my fans happy and satisfied with my performances while also assisting Pakistan in winning matches,” he added.
Babar went on to say that his goal as captain now is to prepare a strong team, one capable of flying the Pakistan flag proudly every time.
Babar Azam warns against complacency
Pakistan is undefeated in the ongoing T20 World Cup under his captaincy. The green shirts have defeated India, New Zealand, and Afghanistan to maintain their lead in the standings. They are scheduled to play Namibia, a lower-ranked team, on Tuesday.
However, Babar has warned the Pakistani team not to become complacent.
“In a tournament like this, we will have to be at our best in every game and perform consistently; we can’t be complacent at any stage against any team because the moment you give your opponent a bit of margin, they will be in a position to snatch the game away from you,” he concluded.
