Remarks about Babar Azam
“Stop equating Babar Azam with Virat Kohli, people. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are two very significant players. No player on Pakistan’s team can be compared to them. They will become a king if you get them to talk.
“They won’t have any output when you ask them to generate any, “He mentioned something to his YouTube channel. Kaneria also criticized Babar’s performance as a leader in the Test series.
“As captain, Babar Azam is a glaring failure. He is unfit to serve as team captain. In particular, when it comes to Test cricket, he is not qualified to serve as team captain.
“By observing Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes throughout the series, he had a strong chance to pick up the captaincy. He also had the option of setting his ego aside and asking Sarfaraz Ahmed for advice on how to captain,” he stated.
