The 40-year-old Pakistan National Cricket Team wicketkeeper-batter Kamran Akmal has lashed out at captain Babar Azam after Pakistan’s humiliating defeat in the three-match Test series against England National Cricket Team.

The Ben Stokes-led England played their aggressive ‘Bazball’ brand of cricket in the Test series against Pakistan and won all three games comprehensively.

In a video shared on his official YouTube channel, Kamran Akmal lauded England for registering a whitewash in the historic Test series in Pakistan. The wicketkeeper-batter further slammed captain Babar Azam, saying that he took immature decisions in the series and there was nothing positive about him.

“Any country that wins a series in Pakistan, it’s a big achievement for them. Very big achievement for England. They came after so long, it was a historical series and they made Pakistan a history. They told us, ‘we have exposed your cricket, your mentality, your system. Now, you take the decision on how to improve your cricket’. They played their own cricket.

”We know where we made mistakes. Those who made debut, did they deserve it? Did we play the XI according to pitch? The captaincy wasn’t perfect. You look at Ben Stokes’ captaincy and Babar’s captaincy… he has been Pakistan’s skipper for so long, at least have some maturity now, take better decisions. At least make your presence feel in the ground. There was nothing positive about him,” he said.

Played with a negative approach – Kamran Akmal on Pakistan

Speaking at a press conference after the second Test, Babar Azam had said that Pakistan dominated the first two games but couldn’t finish when it mattered.

Meanwhile, Kamran Akmal has said that the only team that dominated throughout the Test series was England and, on the other hand, Pakistan played with a “negative approach”.

“From the first Test till the last day of the series, every time there was a press conference, commentators and media, everyone was talking about how England dominated Pakistan. No one talked about us, no one praised us because we played with a negative approach,” said the wicketkeeper.

Notably, Pakistan’s 0-3 Test series defeat against England was the first time that they got whitewashed at home and it was also the first time they lost four Tests on the trot on home soil, having been beaten by Australia in Lahore in March.
