Captaincy Matters: Ex-Pakistani Pacer Critiques Babar Azam's Leadership
Former Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir has criticized Babar Azam's captaincy, arguing that it has been a factor in Pakistan's recent struggles in white-ball cricket. Amir's comments come in response to comments made by former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja, who had called for a "change in system" to address Pakistan's cricket woes.

Amir, who played 61 Tests, 53 ODIs, and 58 T20Is for Pakistan, believes that Azam's captaincy has been too passive and that he has not been able to inspire the team. He also pointed to Azam's poor record in knockout matches, saying that he has not been able to handle the pressure in high-stakes situations.

Amir's comments are likely to add to the pressure on Azam, who has already been under fire for his captaincy. Azam has led Pakistan in 73 ODIs and 40 T20Is, but the team has only won 36% of its matches under his leadership.

Ramiz Raja's call for a "change in system" is a more general criticism of Pakistani cricket. Raja believes that the PCB needs to overhaul its domestic structure in order to produce more talented players. He also called for a change in the coaching philosophy, saying that Pakistan needs to develop a more aggressive and attacking style of play.

Raja's comments have been met with mixed reactions. Some critics have welcomed his call for change, while others have defended the current system. It remains to be seen whether Raja's proposals will be implemented, but his comments have certainly sparked a debate about the future of Pakistani cricket.
