In contrast to Babar, Pakistan’s top batter, who has a strike rate of 61.90, Rizwan has scored at a run-per-ball rate.
In the first semi-final in Sydney, both will need to step up their game against the runners-up from the previous year, New Zealand. Against Thursday in Adelaide, India takes on England in the second semifinal.
Former all-rounder Afridi said on Samaa TV that Babar Azam should pay attention to advice.
Mohammad Haris must be used with fielding limitations. Babar Azam ought to fall to third.
Iftikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood, the middle order hitters for Pakistan, should be as aggressive and play with more intent, according to Afridi.
“You can tell by looking at Iftikhar or Shan Masood that they are aiming to strike the ball from their body language. That sort of intent and that style of cricket are what we need.
If you can’t complete the game after using up so many deliveries, what good is scoring a run-a-ball 30 or 35? Added the 42-year-old.
