#Perth: Pakistan started their T20 World Cup campaign with a loss against India. After the loss against arch-rivals, Babar Azam’s captaincy was hailed by former Pakistan cricketers. After giving a pep talk to the team in the dressing room after the loss against India, Babar also talked about standing around. But in the second match, the Pak captain could not have imagined that he would face defeat against a much less powerful country like Zimbabwe.

Pakistan failed to chase the target of only 130 runs against Zimbabwe. Babar Azam put the team’s batsmen on the table without leaving any excuse for this loss. The team’s batting is disappointing and not good at all, said the Pakistan captain. Babar Azam also said that the pair of Shadab Khan and Shan Masood had given rise to hope but after breaking that partnership, wickets continued to fall. Despite fighting to the end, the end was not saved.

Babar Azam has also said that he will discuss this loss with everyone in the party. At the same time, the Pakistan captain also said that his team will learn from this loss and turn around. Babar Azam also said that he will come back with power in the next match. However, after the loss against Zimbabwe, the former Pakistan cricketers have started firing cannons again.
