In his statement, Babar expressed the difficulty of his decision but emphasized that he believes it’s the right time for this move. He intends to continue representing Pakistan as a player in all three formats and pledges to support the new captain and the team with his experience and commitment.
“Today, I am stepping down as the captain of Pakistan in all formats. It’s a difficult decision but I feel it is a right time for this call. I will continue to represent Pakistan as a player in all three formats. I am here to support the new captain and the team with my experience and dedication,” he wrote.
