“It’s an honor to see true teamwork under your direction”: Afridi writes a touching post for Babar


<p>After becoming skipper in the game’s shortest version, Shaheen Afridi spoke about the Pakistani squad as a “brotherhood.” Pakistan is still getting over their terrible ODI World Cup 2023 campaign, which resulted in their elimination from the competition. Babar resigned from his position as captain of all three forms after the crushing defeat in India. With haste, Pakistan Cricket selected Shan Masood as their new Test captain and Shaheen Afridi as their T20I skipper.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-282691″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-meghan-markle-has-no-interest-in-looking-back-at-her-past-according-to-a-royal-aut.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com meghan markle has no interest in looking back at her past according to a royal aut” width=”1460″ height=”834″ title=”"It's an honor to see true teamwork under your direction": Afridi writes a touching post for Babar 6″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-meghan-markle-has-no-interest-in-looking-back-at-her-past-according-to-a-royal-aut.jpg 700w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-meghan-markle-has-no-interest-in-looking-back-at-her-past-according-to-a-royal-aut-150×86.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1460px) 100vw, 1460px” /></p>
<p>The ODI leadership was left undetermined since Pakistan isn’t expected to participate in that format until November 2024. On the microblogging platform X, Shaheen conveyed his appreciation while discussing his new position.</p>
<p>“Leading our national T20 cricket squad is an honor and a delight for me.Our success is based on cooperation, faith, and unwavering work. We are a brotherhood and a family, not simply a squad. We get up together!”</p>
<p>Pakistan, ranked as the second-best side in the ODI format behind India, entered the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 as one of the favorites. After winning back-to-back games against Sri Lanka and the Netherlands, the squad struggled to win four games in a row.</p>
<p>Pakistan was eliminated from the tournament after failing to place in the top four, which sparked harsh criticism from former players and the media, many of whom called for a total overhaul of the nation’s cricket system.</p>
<p>Babar Azam promptly said on X that he was quitting as captain of all three forms. The former captain of Pakistan announced his resignation as captain of all forms in a devastating message. Although I think this is the ideal moment for this call, it’s a tough choice. Babar, nevertheless, took care to let his supporters know that he was staying with the squad. “I will continue to represent Pakistan as a player in all three formats,” he said. I’m here to help the squad and the new captain.</p>
<p>Shaheen Afridi paid homage to his old captain on X in another tweet. He praised Babar’s leadership qualities and said that he expects the cricket player to keep setting new milestones.</p>
<p>“@babarazam: it has been an honor to see real collaboration and camaraderie under your model leadership. It is admirable that you are a front-runner and that you care about the success of the team as a whole. Insha’Allah, I look forward to seeing you smash more batting records.</p>
<p>The next game involving Pakistan is not planned until the following month. From December 14 to January 7, they will play a three-match Test series against Australia.</p>
<p>Shan Masood’s position as Test captain may be cemented and the Pakistani team’s confidence might be greatly boosted by winning the series. However, Shaheen Afridi will not be leading the team till they face New Zealand in a five-match Twenty20 International series in mid-January.</p>
