Harbhajan Singh is not a fan of Babar Azam’s limited-overs cricket skills as he thinks the Pakistan captain fails to dominate oppositions. However, despite Singh’s opinion, Babar has been able to win the ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year award for the last two years.
During an interview with a YouTube channel, former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh expressed his opinion on Babar Azam’s cricket skills. He stated that Babar is better suited for Test cricket and not for T20s or even for the ODIs. Harbhajan suggested that during limited-overs matches, Pakistan should let Mohammad Rizwan take a single and bowl five deliveries to Babar as he won’t be able to cause damage. He also mentioned that there might be better players than Babar in Pakistan.
“India shouldn’t travel to Pakistan as it isn’t safe there and why are we taking risk of travelling when their own people aren’t safe in their country? Our government is taking the correct decision not to go to Pakistan for any series as our first priority is the safety of our players,” he said.
Harbhajan Singh is against the Indian team traveling to Pakistan for the upcoming Asia Cup. He believes that it is not safe to travel to Pakistan, and the team should not take the risk. Harbhajan pointed out that even the Pakistani people are not safe in their own country, so why should India take the risk. He applauded the Indian government’s decision to prioritize the safety of the players and not go to Pakistan for any series.
