Pakistan batting superstar and newly appointed ODI skipper Babar Azam has said that he has full control over his decision-making and he is not a dummy captain of Pakistan cricket team.
Azam, it is thought, has no real decision-making power as it was rumoured that he was under the influence of Chief Selector Misbah-ul-Haq.
Azam brushed off the claims and addressed that he leaned on to Misbah for advice, insisting that he had full control in calling the shots.
However, the 25-year-old said that he desired more involvement in the selection process.
“I make my own decisions 100% but I ask Misbah for his advice. No one imposes their decisions on me. With that said, I would like more involvement in the selection process,” Pakistan’s Daily Jang quoted Babar as saying.
Azam further said he idolised former skipper Imran Khan and wished to mirror his “aggressive” captaincy style.
“I thoroughly enjoy captaincy and I wish to be an aggressive captain like Imran one day,” he said.
