Pakistan captain Babar Azam has expressed that International Cricket Council (ICC) should review the Covid-19 restrictions post-pandemic.

Although the Covid-19 threat has not completely subsided but things are slowly getting back to how they used to be.

While speaking in an interview with a local media outlet, Babar Azam said that Covid-19 posed a lot of problems for players.

"Players often faced tough conditions during the Covid-19 era. Especially, bowlers, as they had to face a lot of restrictions on the ground," he said.

"As Covid-19 is over now, ICC should review their Covid-19 policies. Players should get relief now," he added.

Babar recalled tough times for his team during Covid-19. "We had to face a tough situation in New Zealand where our players were tested Covid-19 positive. In West Indies too, our players faced difficulties," he shared. 

"Credit goes to players for giving their best despite Covid-19 restrictions. They need relaxation now," he concluded.
