However, Babar Azam came with a sharp response when he was asked about the future of his captaincy and made it clear that his focus is on team’s performance.

“Sir, you will only be knowing to whom the captaincy is going. I don't care about this. My work is to perform in the field and make my team also perform,” Babar responded.
