Captaincy challenge but won’t affect my batting
The 25-year old player added in his statement that he won’t be getting affected by his new role although it’s a challenge.
“It is an honour to lead one’s national team so it is not a burden for me at all. In fact, after becoming captain, I have to lead by example and be more responsible in my batting,” Babar Azam was quoted by PTI .
He also hoped that T20 World Cup would be held in its already scheduled time since he was keen to play and doing well in the tournament.
Learning skill to be a complete leader
The star Pakistani batsman believes that a complete leader should able to interact well with media and also express himself the best with its audience and thus he is learning English.
“These days I am also taking English classes besides focussing on my batting,” he said on Monday.
Concluding his statement, the newly appointed captain said he wants his team to go up in the ranking as the current position is not satisfactory.
