Pakistan captain Babar Azam is under the spotlight as the ongoing ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 progresses. The 29-year-old star batsman has been facing questions about his performance in the tournament.

In the six World Cup matches played so far, Babar Azam has scored 207 runs with an average of 34.50 and a strike rate of 79.00. Notably, all three of his half-centuries have come while batting first, and his innings have had the lowest strike rate among batters who have scored 50 or more in this World Cup.

In Pakistan’s recent match against South Africa, Babar Azam’s innings came at a strike rate of 76.92 as he faced 66 balls to score 50 runs. However, in previous matches, he demonstrated a slightly higher strike rate, with 80.43 against Afghanistan and 86.20 against India.

Emerging batter Abdullah Shafique also came under scrutiny for his performance, scoring 58 off 75 balls with a strike rate of 77.3 in the same match.

The Pakistan cricket team finds itself in a precarious position after losing three consecutive matches. Another loss in the match against South Africa could jeopardize their chances of advancing to the semi-finals of the tournament. In contrast, South Africa is in a strong position with four wins in five games.

In the 26th match of the ICC World Cup 2023, Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat against South Africa. By the time this news story was filed, Pakistan was batting at 259-7 in 44 overs, with Mohammad Nawaz (23*) and Shaheen Afridi (2*) at the crease.
