DubaiPakistan captain Babar Azam had termed Hasan Ali’s dropping of Matthew Wade’s catch as the “turning point” of the T20 World Cup semi-final loss to Australia but later amended it to say that players Dropping a catch was part of the match and was not the reason for his team’s ouster.

Ali failed to catch Wade off Shaheen Shah Afridi in the 19th over, after which the Australian batsman smashed three consecutive sixes to help his team win a five-wicket victory over Pakistan. Babar said after the match that if the catch had been taken, the result of the match could have been different.

But at the post-match press conference, he reiterated some of what he had said earlier but added that not catching catches was part of the game and the team would fully support Ali.

He said, “Catches were missed in the match and because of this, the course of the match changed. Had the catch not been dropped, the scenario could have been different. But it’s part of the game and the sooner we learn from our mistakes, the better. ,

When asked by a reporter whether he realized now that Ali’s form was not good during the tournament and the Pakistani team was kicked out of the tournament after he dropped the catch. He said, “I don’t think so. ,

Azam said, “He is our main bowler and he has won a lot of matches for Pakistan. Sometimes catches are missed by the players. ,

Babar, who has been one of the players to have performed brilliantly with the bat in the tournament, said, “He (Ali) is struggling a bit (with form) and I will continue to support him. Not every player can do well in every match. Some players who have a good day during the match, they take full advantage of it and perform well. ,

“Yeah, he’s not in a little form. We will continue to support him and keep trusting him. People say a lot of things but we are with that. ,

Leaving Ali’s catch proved costly for the team, apart from that he could not do well with the ball and he conceded 44 runs in his four overs.

But Babar said, “As a player you need confidence, we have supported Hasan Ali. Apart from the management, I have fully supported him. To do well or not to do well on a day is not in your hands, the important thing is to try and he put in his effort. Unfortunately didn’t work out but never mind, he will do well going forward. ,

Apart from this, in the speech given by Babar Azam in the dressing room, he said that no player should point fingers at each other. He said that everyone knows what went wrong in the match. We don’t need to tell anyone.

In the video uploaded on the Pakistan Cricket Board, Babar Azam was seen telling the players that it is our job to try but the result is not in our hands. You think what went wrong in today’s match and how to improve it further.

After this Babar praised the unity of the team and said that this unity is made with great difficulty, there should not be any crack in it. Such a team has been made with great difficulty. Let no one blame each other for defeat and no one pull back his hands.

In this video, the camera panned once on Hasan Ali too. This T20 tournament was very good for Pakistan captain Babar Azam as a batsman. With 5 runs in the semi-finals, he became the most successful batsman of this T20 World Cup, overtaking Jos Buttler. Babar Azam scored 303 runs with 4 half-centuries.
