No one should raise fingers at any player: Babar gives heartening speech in dressing room

After Pakistan’s defeat against Australia in the knockout stage of the ICC T20 World Cup, national cricket team captain Babar Azam said that everybody is sad and feeling the pain, but that they will learn from this defeat.
The only undefeated team of the Super 12s met a five-wicket drubbing in the second semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup. Australia will now face New Zealand in the final of the major cricketing event.
“No one should point a finger at anyone. No one should blame the other for whatever they did,” Babar Azam said, while talking to his teammates after the match.
“All of us know where we went wrong. We don’t need outsiders to tell us this. We didn’t play well today as a team, but as a captain, I back everyone.”

In a video shared on social platforms by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Azam said that in every match, every player showed responsibility and this is what a captain expects from his team.
Encouraging the visibly dejected players, he told them that the unity the Green Shirts have developed should not be broken. The current unity [in the team] has been created with a lot of difficulties, he said, adding that this single defeat [in the semi-final] should not be allowed to break this unity.
The skipper said everybody has put in a lot of effort by also maintaining the atmosphere of a family and no one tried to withdraw their support for others.
