Pakistan secured their first T20 World Cup 2024 victory on Tuesday, triumphing over Canada by seven wickets in New York. The team, led by Babar Azam, confronted an sudden setback in their opening match with a Super Over defeat in opposition to co-hosts USA, adopted by a slim loss to arch-rivals India.

Azam Khan has confronted criticism for his health and efficiency in this event, failing to justify his choice. Consequently, the wicketkeeper-batter has been omitted from the team and is unlikely to make a return to the taking part in XI for the rest of the event.

Former Pakistan team director Mohammad Hafeez supplied additional perception into Azam’s health throughout an interview with a neighborhood information channel.

(*2*) he mentioned.

“Being lean or oversize is never an issue for me, but you need to work according to the needs of the game. You need to bring your fitness to a required level. We gave him a fitness plan, but he [Azam] could not improve. You are in the team because of your talent, but you need to respond in case of fitness. You are the only one in the team on whom we have compromised on the grounds of fitness,” Hafeez additional mentioned.

Azam made his T20I debut in 2021, however has solely managed to attain 88 runs up to now. His T20 World Cup debut was marred by being dismissed for a golden duck, drawing criticism from former Pakistan gamers and followers.

Currently, Pakistan sits in third place in Group A with two factors from three matches, trailing behind the USA who has 4 factors. The latest defeat of the USA in opposition to India has made the web run fee equation inconsequential in Group A. Pakistan holds the benefit over the USA with a internet run fee of +0.191 in comparison with the co-hosts’ +0.127.

In order to advance to the Super 8s, Pakistan can safe a spot by defeating Ireland in a Super Over, or if Ireland defeats the USA. They also can progress in the event that they defeat Ireland and the USA loses to them, whatever the margin of victory. On the opposite hand, the USA must safe at least one level, or depend on Pakistan dropping factors. The unpredictable climate in Lauderhill poses a big concern for Pakistan, as any washed-out matches may doubtlessly profit the USA in reaching the Super 8s.
