Babar Azam’s role as captain will be most important in Pak-India clash: Matthew Hayden

Babar Azam will be under extra pressure as captain and batsman as everyone will want to get his wicket: Batting Consultant

Matthew Hayden, Pakistan’s batting consultant, believes that Babar Azam’s leadership will be crucial in the upcoming T20 World Cup between India and Pakistan. Speaking at a virtual press conference, Matthew Hayden, 49, said the margin of error would be very small in the UAE. “I think the lead will be key in the upcoming match because there will be very little margin of error in the UAE conditions and there are two-way competition conditions,” Hayden said.
He said that Babar Azam would be under extra pressure as a captain and batsman as he would be targeted and everyone would want to get his wicket.

Matthew Hayden said that Babar Azam has to fulfill other important responsibilities besides captaincy and he needs to fulfill this role as a batting sense and captain. He also talked about the importance of India-Pakistan match while comparing it with Ashes.

Hayden said that Australia and England’s Ashes is the biggest game of cricket but the enmity between India and Pakistan is the biggest that I know about and there will be clear pressure on both but also removed the pressure with hard work and experience. Yes, the Pak-India competition is a historic occasion. Remember that Pakistan will face India on October 24 in Dubai.
