Following Pakistan's devastating loss to India in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, former batter Ahmed Shehzad has voiced his disapproval of team captain Babar Azam in public.

Pakistan, chasing a modest target of 120, fell short by six runs, scoring only 113 and losing seven wickets. This defeat followed an earlier loss to debutants USA, placing Pakistan on the brink of an early exit from the tournament.

Ahmed Shehzad, part of Pakistan's 2009 T20 World Cup-winning team, expressed his frustration with Babar Azam's leadership and performance. Shehzad charged that Azam had misled cricket fans in Pakistan.

 "You claim to be the world's best player. Explain to me how your 1400 runs come from losing matches. What kind of king or No. 1 batsman has 1400 runs and ranks No. 3 in the world, but his team loses whenever he scores?" said Shehzad.

He criticized Babar for focusing on personal achievements over team success. 

"You have highlighted minor achievements on social media so much that you have fooled the Pakistani public," Shehzad added.

Shehzad also pointed out team selection and player development issues under Babar's leadership.

"You use young players who need grooming and make them criticized on social media. Look at Saim Ayub and Azam Khan. You left Azam Khan alone. Any player who plays two domestic matches reports an injury and goes out. But when PSL and Pakistan cricket come, they get fit again," he stated.

Shehzad emphasized the need for Pakistan cricket to evolve. "You stayed stubborn and didn't improve with time. Because of this, where has the cricket of the world gone? And where has your cricket gone?" he concluded.

Following these back-to-back losses, Pakistan's chances of qualifying for the Super 8s are slim. Their upcoming matches against Canada (June 11) and Ireland (June 15) are crucial. 

If India and the USA win even one of their remaining Group A matches, Pakistan will be eliminated despite any potential wins.
