Following Pakistan’s dismal show in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, captain Babar Azam has been immensely criticised by several fans, experts and former cricketers for his poor captaincy.

Launching a scathing attack on Babar, former Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir said that captaincy matters more than what the members of the PCB management comprises of.

“Captaincy does matter. What is the system? It is not a wall. Five and six people have been given responsibility to run the Pakistan cricket. A captain is also one of them,” said Amir during a television show.

In a bid to explain his point on the impact of a good captain, Amir did not miss out on the legendary MS Dhoni and his role in Ravindra Jadeja turning out to be one of the leading all-rounders across formats.

“We say Dhoni changed India’s cricket, but he never changed the system. People kept saying that for how long will he keep giving Jadeja and Ashwin chances. And now we say Jadeja is World’s best all-rounder. MS Dhoni has given them the team,” said Amir.
