Salman Butt Questions Babar Azam’s Strategy Despite 3-0 Whitewash

Salman Butt, a former Pakistan Test cricketer, has expressed his discontent with Babar Azam’s captaincy, claiming that he does not understand why Nawaz and Shadab were sent to bat ahead of Khushdil in the first ODI, despite the fact that he appeared in good form.

“Kushdil Shah, like in the first ODI, concluded the game wonderfully for Pakistan, winning the game for the team and remaining unbeaten. When Pakistan was in trouble the next game, they put Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan ahead of Khushdil. What exactly are they doing? “What exactly are they planning?”

In the first ODI, Khushdil Shah’s performance at number five was remarkable. He was named Player of the Match after scoring 41 runs off 23 balls to assist his team chase down 305 runs. In the following two ODIs, he was forced to bat at 7 and 8.

Mohammad Hairs’ inclusion in the starting XI if he is not playing as a wicket-keeper was also questioned by the former captain. If the rising star is to take Sarfaraz’s place, he should bat like a wicketkeeper-batter, he said.

Mohammad Hairs played in all three One-Day Internationals, but did not bat behind the stumps in the first two. He was given a chance in the final ODI and finished with two stumpings and a catch.

If Haris is employed as a middle-order hitter, the squad has better options in Shan Masood or Kamran Ghulam, according to the former batter.

“If you need him in the middle of the order, go with Shan Masood or Kamran Ghulam.” The West Indies aren’t creating any obstacles to us because they are dealing with their own issues. But in what direction are we going? “What is our strategy?” Butt inquired further.
