Praising Babar Azam for his batting and terming it right move to appoint him as Pakistan limited over captain Sohail said need to keep him away from Misbah defensive approach.

“If Babar has been identified as Pakistan’s captain in at least two formats of the game, then it’s incumbent upon the PCB to help him become the best captain he can be. This can be achieved by identifying any weaknesses in his leadership qualities and by good mentoring. But if Misbah is to be Babar’s mentor, then we have a problem because he was himself criticised for being a defensive captain,” Aamer Sohail wrote in PakPassion.net blog.

He said that Misbah should be honest about his own shortfalls and make sure that Babar doesn’t make same mistake.

“The onus is on Misbah to be honest about his own deficiencies as a captain and to make sure that Babar does not make the same mistakes he made, especially when it comes to making sure that the younger players are given good chances to ensure a brighter future for Pakistan cricket.”
