'Shaheen is the best bet for the future of Pakistan cricket. Babar has failed to prove himself as an able captain in white ball formats'

'He (Babar) has wasted Haris Rauf by bringing him in the powerplay. Haris was hit in his first over (against Australia) and he lost all confidence'

'5 overs were left, 2 of Shaheen Afridi, 2 of Haris Rauf and 1 for Hasan Ali, and we gave 46th over to a spinner, Usama Mir. Why?'

Basit Ali

'He (Babar) should quit captaincy, just like Virat Kohli did. Virat stepped down and look at his performances. His performance will become better'

Abdul Razzaq

'When Babar bats slowly it has an adverse effect on other batters who then can’t play their natural game and this is affecting PAK's SR'
