Legendary batsman Javed Miandad said the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) must ask captain Babar Azam an honest question.

Going into more detail, he noted that the board must have a talk with Azam about whether the captaincy “is taking a toll on him”.

“The board should ask him if captaincy is taking a toll on him. There needs to be an honest conversation between him and the board,” he was quoted as saying by Cricwick.

The 28-year-old was in great form in the recently-concluded first Test against New Zealand as he made 161, which came off 280 balls and included 15 boundaries and a six.

That match ended as a draw, which means that both teams will be gunning for a win in the second and final Test, which started on Monday in Karachi.

In the first innings, Azam scored 24 runs before being run out.
