Pakistan’s cricket captain Babar Azam said that he plans on adopting former cricketer Imran Khan’s style of leadership.
While talking to a private news channel, Azam said that the cricketer-turned-PM favoured an aggressive style of play and gave immense confidence to his fellow teammates.
“When players are praised, they get the courage [to perform well]… when players are relaxed they deliver better performance.”
Azam added that being a skipper, he now thinks along the lines of his team’s larger interest rather than only personal success.
“More than my own performance, I now have to work for the team,” he said, adding that he also tries to include his team members by taking their input for team plans.
