Reactions to the resignation of Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam. Cricketers have lauded the right-handed batter for his services as captain of the Pakistan cricket team in all three formats following his resignation as captain of all three formats, which led to the Men in Green becoming the number one team in one-day internationals (ODIs).

In the earlier part of the day, the 29-year-old resigned from his position as the Pakistan cricket team’s captain after he was severely criticized for the team’s dismal performance in both the Asia Cup and the World Cup which is currently going on.

There has been a lot of scrutiny on the performance of Babar, who was appointed as white-ball captain in 2019 and later as Test captain in 2020, after the Green Shirts were forced to withdraw from the mega-event due to their below-par performance in bowling, fielding, and batting.

Muhammad Rizwan, the wicketkeeper batsman for the Pakistan team, reacted to the resignation of Babar as captain by expressing his admiration for the 29-year-old batter through social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, calling him as one of the greatest batsmen Pakistan has ever produced.

The right-handed batsman was also thanked for his efforts as Test captain by former Test captain Azhar Ali.

In addition, Mohammad Hafeez, another former all-rounder, praised Babar for his services as skipper and wished him all the best for his future endeavors.

” Sohail Tanveer thanked him for the service he had provided as captain.

“Please accept my heartfelt thanks for all the services you provided to Pakistan as a captain. A special thanks goes to you for helping Pakistan to achieve the No. 1 spot in ODIs,” wrote former spinner Saeed Ajmal in a letter.

As a result, Azhar Ali, a former Test captain, expressed his gratitude to the right-handed batsman for his outstanding leadership during his tenure.

Former allrounder Mohammad Hafeez also lauded Babar’s service as captain and wished him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

During her speech, Sohail Tanveer thanked her for all her hard work as a captain.

Saeed Ajmal, former spinner of Pakistan’s ODI team, wrote to him and said the following: “Thank you so much for all your service to Pakistan during your tenure as captain, and for taking Pakistan to the top spot in ODI cricket.”.

Following his meeting with PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf earlier in the day, Babar had announced to step down from the position of Pakistan’s captain following his meeting with the PCB Management Committee.

It is a difficult decision for me to make, but I feel it is the [right] time for me to step down as captain of Pakistan in all formats at this time,” Babar said in a statement on X, formerly Twitter, in which he announced his retirement from cricket.

I am here to support the new captain and the team with my experience and dedication since I have represented Pakistan in all three formats as a player. I look forward to being a part of the new team,” he concluded.

The 29-year-old Babar Azam has had a very successful career, even though he has only been playing for two years, during which he was the top-ranked batsman in one-day internationals. There was only one batter across all formats that achieved the top three positions and that was the ex-skipper.

There was a great deal of cooperation between the players, coaches, and management that allowed the batter to achieve the number one position in the white-ball format, he said.
