PAK vs SA: Shaheen Afridi Can Bring Aggression In The Players As Captain Of Pakistan Team – Aaqib Javed

Former cricketer Aaqib Javed picked Shaheen Afridi as the new captain for Pakistan following their disappointing performances in the ICC World Cup 2023. Aaqib Javed emphasized that the Pakistan team requires a leader who can infuse aggression into the players.

The Babar Azam-led team kicked off their World Cup campaign with consecutive victories against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. However, they failed to maintain their winning momentum and suffered three consecutive losses in the ongoing marquee event.

I Will Recommend Shaheen Afridi – Aaqib Javed

Speaking after Pakistan’s eight-wicket loss against Afghanistan, Aaqib Javed recommended Shaheen Afridi to be Pakistan’s captain in white-ball formats, highlighting the bold decisions he made during the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“Pakistan Cricket Team needs a new captain after WorldCup who can bring aggression in the players. I will recommend Shaheen Afridi became took such decisions in PSL which an ordinary player like Babar Azam cannot even think of,” Aaqib Javed said.

Shaheen Afridi led the Lahore Qalandars to victory in the PSL 2023 at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium. The left-arm pace bowler achieved the distinction of being the first captain to win the PSL trophy twice, as he had also led his franchise to the title the previous year.

Pakistan Need To Win Every Game To Reach Semi-Finals

The Men in Green endured an eight-wicket loss in their fifth match of the tournament at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Monday, October 23. Babar Azam’s captaincy came under scrutiny as Afghanistan lost just two wickets in challenging batting conditions.

The Pakistan team are currently in fifth place in the 10-team points table with four points. They must win their remaining four matches to stay in the tournament. Teams typically need to win at least six matches and rely on other teams’ results to qualify for the semi-finals.
