Babar Azam’s father took to his Instagram account and expressed his excitement over his son’s reappointment as captain.

“The most important thing is that the people of the authority gave honour and respect again,” posted Azam Siddiqui.

He advised the right-hand batter to respect Wasim and Amir due to their seniority and let bygones be bygones.

“Now there are echoes that the team will not be united but I have said to Babar to forget the past. [Mohammad] Amir and Imad [Wasim] are older than and senior to you, meet them with respect and honour their opinion,” he added.

“I have also told Babar to treat everybody in the team like brothers. As all the eleven brothers will conquer the world with unity,” he concluded.

The first assignment of Babar Azam during his second tenure will be a five-match home T20I series against New Zealand, commencing on April 18 in Rawalpindi.

The star batter had previously led Pakistan in white-ball cricket from 2019 to 2023 before stepping down following the team’s dismal performance in the ICC World Cup 2023.

After his resignation, PCB appointed Shan Masood as Test captain, while Shaheen Afridi was handed responsibility to lead the T20I side.

Afridi had an unwanted start to his captaincy reign, which started with a five-match away series loss against New Zealand in January this year.
