Babar Azam is considering quitting Karachi Kings before the PSL 2022 season begins : PSL 2022 Schdule

Babar Azam, one of the best batters in the world, has been a run machine in recent years. Azam scored runs and broke a slew of records regardless of the format or condition. In addition to international cricket, the right-handed hitter has shown his worth in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Since joining the Karachi Kings ahead of the 2017 season, Azam has been a key part in the team’s success.

This year, the talismanic batter was even vital in leading the team to the playoffs. However, the most recent news suggests that Babar Azam may leave the team before the 2022 season. Babar is said to be dissatisfied with the business due to financial troubles and concerns about his image. As a result, the 26-year-old may play for a different team next season.

Cricket Pakistan conducted the major investigation. Azam is also said to be dissatisfied with the fact that his personal difficulties have been repeatedly publicised by a media outlet with close ties to team owners. While Babar has apparently decided to leave the Kings, the team is adamant about keeping him.

After all, Azam is one of Pakistan’s best cricketers and also serves as the national team’s captain. However, if the two parties are unable to reach an agreement, the prolific will leave the Imad Wasim-led side. The Karachi Kings’ Media Manager, Faisal Mirza, had previously dismissed claims of a conflict between Azam and franchise owners.

For the uninitiated, Azam parted ways with Islamabad United after appearing in two PSL matches for the team in 2016. The batter thereafter joined the Karachi Kings and never looked back. With 291 runs scored in his debut season with the team, Azam left an indelible imprint. In the following two seasons, Azam continued his incredible run, scoring 402 and 335 runs, respectively.

Babar even helped the Kings win their first championship in 2020. In the season, he hit 473 home runs and was named Player of the Tournament. Despite the fact that the Karachi-based team failed to retain their title in 2021, Azam was the season’s best run-scorer with 554 runs.
