Shahid Afridi, Pakistan’s former captain, has suggested changes to the team’s lineup, led by Babar Azam, in the wake of their close loss to the USA in a Super Over and their inability to chase a modest target against India.

Afridi underscored the necessity for alterations in the playing XI to enhance their performance.

He specifically recommended that Fakhar Zaman be moved up to open with Mohammad Rizwan, while Babar Azam be demoted to number three to bolster the batting lineup.

“I think now is the time for Gary Kirsten and Babar Azam to make some changes. I would like to see Salman Ali Agha [he is not part of the T20 World Cup squad] come into the side in place of Usman Khan and Abrar Ahmed to come in for Shadab Khan. Most of all, I believe Fakhar Zaman should be promoted to open the innings alongside Mohammad Rizwan, with Babar dropping down to number three,” Shahid penned in the ICC column.

Pakistan’s prospects of progressing to the Super 8 stage depend on the USA losing their forthcoming matches, along with Pakistan convincingly winning their remaining games to improve their net run rate. As they gear up for their next match against Canada in New York on Tuesday, Afridi urged the team to stay optimistic.

“There are some tough conversations and choices to come but we need to remember that there is still hope: Pakistan are not out of the tournament yet,” Afridi concluded.
