A beast of ICC, Babur bowed his head in shame and laughed with tears; Only tears for the ball
England’s tour of Pakistan saw the visitors sweep the Test series. Pakistan bowed out to the visitors after losing every match in the three-match Test series.
2022 was the worst year in the history of Pakistan cricket, and Pakistan cricket was rocked this year, including losses in home matches. Perhaps the biggest setback for Pakistan cricket after the bribery scandal will be the 2022 Test debacle.
Babar and his team experienced the last loss during England’s tour of Pakistan. England won the three match series with a whitewash. England toured Pakistan after 17 years and stunned the hosts in front of their home crowd.
This was the worst series in the history of Pakistan cricket. This is the first time Pakistan have lost a series whitewash on home soil.
Captain Babar Azam had to shoulder the entire blame for this loss. The fans and former players said it was the star’s bad captaincy that pushed the team into the abyss.
Apart from this, a bad record was also created in the name of Captain Babar Azam. Babar went on to become the first Pakistani captain to lose four home Tests in a calendar year.
