Babar said that Akhtar might know better who is a star and who is not and refused to comment further on the matter.

“I think he [Shoaib Akhtar] doesn’t think so, but all the players are giving their 100 percent everywhere. I think you should ask him who a star is and who isn’t. I can’t argue or give comments on this,” Babar commented.

The 26-year old was disappointed at Pakistan’s bowling and fielding effort in the third ODI. He believes that Pakistan had put enough runs on the board to secure 10 points in the ICC World Cup Super League encounter but they were let down due to poor performance in the field.

Star batsman further commented that the team was not able to perform up to their ability and lost the series due to their own mistakes. He said that the team was not able to click on all fronts and was poor in all departments of the game.

Babar believes that the current crop of players has been good for Pakistan in the recent past and this poor series should not hamper their chances of representing the country. He said that he fully backs his team to bounce back and register important wins in the near future.
