In an interview with a local news channel, Ashraf refuted these allegations, saying that the Pakistan captain had never gotten in touch with him directly. “He [Latif] says that I don’t pick up his [Babar’s] call,” Ashraf clarified. “He’s never given me a call. The chief operating officer or the director of international cricket are expected to speak with the captain of the team.”
To support his claims, Ashraf went to the extent of sharing a private WhatsApp message from Babar Azam.
The Pakistan team is now in Kolkata where they will play Bangladesh. Pakistan are currently at the sixth spot in the points table with two wins in six games.
