The Pakistan cricket fans are buzzing with criticism and disappointment as their team’s campaign in the ODI World Cup 2023 almost faces an imminent exit. The Green Team’s below-par performance has sparked heated debates among fans, experts, and former cricketers, with the captain, Babar Azam, bearing the brunt of the criticism.

In a surprising turn of events, Babar’s former teammate Imad Wasim has now added fuel to the controversy by suggesting that the Lahore-born cricketer should gracefully step down from the captaincy.

It is worth mentioning that the dynamics between Babar and Imad have been a subject of controversy for quite some time now. The all-rounder, who hasn’t represented Pakistan in ODIs since 2020 and last played a international match during a T20I series  against New Zealand in April earlier this year, expressed his views on Babar’s leadership during a recent interaction with ARY News.
