Toh ek shaqs ko iske upar mujrim na banaye aur tamaam outcomes ok consider karein, ki accha hone ki kya wajuhat thi aur bura hone ki kya wajuhat hai.

Abhi yeh waqt nahi hai yeh saari baat karne ka aur agar Babar humare kaptaan hain World Cup ke liye toh hume unhe bhut pyaar se aur badi duwaon se India bhejna chahiye aur unhe mazeed felicitate karna chahiye ki unke liye kya behtar kar sakte hain. Aur sadly agar outcomes acche na aaye toh tab hume sochna chahiye ki hume isi ko proceed karna hai ya hume behtar ki zaoorat hai. (Personally, I’m not in favour of anyone however being an ex-captain, I’ve additionally skilled such failures. I believe it is not the appropriate time to speak about such issues. If Babar is our captain for the World Cup, then we should always all help him and ship him to India with lot of affection. If sadly, the outcomes don’t are available in our favour, then we have to suppose strategically that whether or not we’d like Babar or do we’d like somebody higher.)”
