Babar Azam needs to improve his English, personality: Tanvir
LAHORE: Pakistan’s limited-overs captain Babar Azam needs to improve his personality and command over the English language, according to former cricketer Tanvir Ahmed, on Saturday, in a YouTube video.
Tanvir feels Babar needs grooming as he will be required to communicate often with the media as the captain of the Pakistan team.
“Try to improve your personality. By personality, I mean a person can change his dressing sense,” said Tanvir. “Babar Azam also needs to improve his English, which is necessary. Whenever someone becomes a captain, he has to talk during the toss and post-match presentation. Plus, he will also give interviews on various channels when he tours different countries.”
Former right-arm pacer also advised the Lahore-born batsman to lead by example on and off the field.
“A leader needs to be punctual and organised as the players follow the captain. He should also maintain his fitness level, because if the captain himself isn’t fit, then he can’t advise other players on improving their fitness,” he said. - Agencies
