“I don’t think they have the skill set of what I’ve seen in the past from Pakistan cricket in T20 cricket. I honestly don’t think they’ve got many great T20 players. Babar Azam is exceptional, but would he make England’s, Australia’s, India’s, or the West Indies’ T20 teams? Probably not.” 

In the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, Babar Azam compiled only 91 runs in three matches with a 104.65 strike rate.

“Mentally, they have no clue how to beat India. That’s true. I could see it in the chase. They should have strolled that game. There’s only one winner because India knows how to win and they have the mentality to get over the line, and for whatever reason, Pakistan just doesn’t seem to have that kind of swagger,” he concluded.
