Former cricketer Abdul Razzaq has said Pakistan star batsman Babar Azam does not possess the skill to lead a team and should not be a captain.

Speaking duringGeo News programme ‘Haarna Mana Hay’, Razzaq said he tries to say something that people do not know.

Commenting on the Pakistan Super League (PSL) match between Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings on Wednesday, he said Babar should have brought an experienced bowler against Karachi Kings’s platinum pick, Kieron Pollard, who could score even 60 runs in a T20 match’s last three overs.

The former all-rounder said the way Babar batted created momentum in the batting lineup. He also said the team's middle order in which Babar plays should be strong.

Former woman cricketer Kainat Imtiaz said Babar and Mohammad Rizwan made a solid platform for batting. She was a huge fan of both the national team players.

Karachi Kings on Wednesday defeated Peshawar Zalmi by seven wickets in the sixth match of the ongoing PSL at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

Kieron Pollard, starred with the bat as he guided the one-time PSL champions to a comfortable win by successfully chasing down the 155-run target.
