Misbah-ul-Haq, former Pakistan cricket coach and captain, has expressed concerns regarding the frequent changes in the team and emphasized the need to evaluate Babar Azam's performance over the last four years comprehensively. 

The former cricketer also highlighted that the responsibility for the team's performance is not solely on the captain but is shared across all departments, including all three departments-batting, bowling, and fielding.

He stressed the importance of stability and a holistic approach to work on the team's strengths and weaknesses.

Misbah-ul-Haq Express Concern On Continuous Changes In Pakistan

In a recent interview, Misbah-ul-Haq spoke to the media after the match in the World Championship of Legends and stated that every player in the team should take responsibility and play according to the demands of the game. 

It is not just that the entire responsibility depends on the captain every player should step up. 

"As far as Babar's performance is concerned, we need to see where he stands after four years. It's not just the captain's fault; the blame lies with all departments, including batting, bowling, and fielding," Misbah said.

"The decision-makers also need to assess where the team combination stands and what sensible options are available. However, if changes are being made just for show, just for cosmetic reasons, it will be detrimental. The continuous changes made by the management and captain series after series have caused us to suffer in the World Cup," he further added.

The Pakistan cricket team has faced significant challenges since their early exit from the 2023 World Cup, which continued in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2024. 

Pakistan was eliminated before reaching the Super 8 stage after they lost their first two matches to the United States (USA) and India. 

Meanwhile, Pakistan will host Bangladesh for a two-match Test series from August 21, where Shan Masood will be leading the Men in Green.
