If you want to know the reason for Pakistan’s defeat from England’s point of view, then all eyes will be fixed on Babar Azam. And, to know why this is so, you have to understand the statement of England player David Malan.

Pakistan got slammed in the 7 T20 match series against England. He had to lose 3-4 series in his own home, in his own circumstances and among his own people. By the way, if Pakistan had won the last T20 played in Lahore, then the matter could have been made. The series would have been in his bag. But this could not happen. Poor batting and poor fielding became a sore bone for Pakistan in the last T20. By the way, if you want to know the reason for Pakistan’s defeat from the point of view of England, then all eyes will be fixed on Babar Azam. And, to know why this is so, you have to understand the statement of England player David Malan.
Now David Malan said after the last T20 played in Lahore, should he know first. In a special conversation with Jia TV, Malan said, “The wicket was good for batting. Pakistan dropped some of our catches which were in our favour. We had a partnership because of those missed catches, which benefited us.”
Babar Azam dropped 2 out of 3 catches
Pakistan dropped a total of 3 catches in the match, out of which only its captain Babar Azam left 2 catches. In three catches, only two catches were left by David Malan. First when he was playing 29 runs off 19 balls. And second when he had scored 62 runs in 39 balls. Taking advantage of these two lives, he scored 78 runs in 47 balls.

Apart from Malan, a catch was missed by Harry Brooke, when he was playing after scoring 24 runs in 17 balls. He also took advantage of that one life and scored 46 runs in 29 balls. For England, Malan and Brooke added 108 runs in 61 balls for the third wicket.
Babar left 2 catches, did not even say with the bat
It is clear that David Malan has again said that it is not wrong to lose Pakistan due to its catch drop. And, if the catch drop is the reason, then the real villain will be Babar Azam, who dropped 2 out of 3 catches. Anyway, if he had scored runs with the bat, then perhaps it would have been good for Pakistan. But in the last T20, he could only score 4 runs in 4 balls.
