“People put extra pressure on him”

Former cricketer Salman Butt believes there shouldn’t be any additional pressure on Pakistani batsman Shan Masood by touting him as a replacement for skipper Babar Azam.

On his YouTube channel, Butt pointed out how Masood has been struggling for form lately. He noted that the left-hander failed to impress in the recently ended home series against New Zealand.

He also claimed that it’s still unclear whether Masood will be a safe starter in all three formats. butt explained:

“People are ruining Shan Masood’s cricket by running this campaign. He’s struggling to get runs at the moment. He couldn’t even play a big bat in the home series. Now people have put extra pressure on him.”

According to a report by Geo News, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is specifically considering stripping Babar of the captaincy for all formats. Masood, who has been named as vice-captain for the team’s ODI home series against New Zealand, is said to be one of the contenders for the managerial position.

“Can’t we sit down and talk to him about it?” – Salman Butt on Babar Azam’s captaincy

Salman Butt went on to say that instead of sacking Babar Azam, PCB officials should hold talks with the thug to help him rectify his mistakes.

He mentioned that everyone was in favor of making the team’s smartest player the captain. However, Butt stressed that the focus should be on producing positive results as only wins would help to improve the situation of Pakistani cricket.

Added butt:

“Let’s say there are many issues regarding Babar Azam’s captaincy. But if that’s the case, can’t we sit down and talk to him about it? Any player would want the smartest member of the team to be the captain. ” To be a great player you have to win games. It’s no use scoring a thousand runs in an innings but the team loses.”
