Islamabad – Former Pakistan player Shuaib Akhtar said that Pakistan captain Babar Azam still cannot become a brand because he does not know how to handle English well. Playing cricket and handling the media are important things. If Babar cannot speak, he cannot express himself – Akhtar told a Pakistani channel.
“You will understand that Pakistan team players do not know how to talk. The players talking at the end of the games are very annoying. Is learning and speaking English that difficult? “Cricket is one task, media management is another,” Akhtar said.
“If you can’t speak in front of the media, you can’t present your point of view. I say frankly that Babar Azam should be the biggest brand in Pakistan. But why doesn’t that happen? Because he still doesn’t know how to speak straight. Can any other Pakistani cricketer speak better?”
“Why are Shahid Afridi and Wasim Akram getting all the advertisements? Because we take it as a job. ” – claimed Akhtar. This is not the first time that Babar Azam has been criticized for not being able to speak English. During a press conference in 2020, Babar Azam responded that he was trying to improve his English. Babar expressed his position in response to a question from media workers.
