Former cricketer Rashid Latif has rubbished rumours about unrest in Pakistan team under the leadership of Babar Azam.

While speaking on his YouTube channel, Latif said that there is no player in the current national team who matches the calibre of Babar and there is no threat to his captaincy.

"Whatever is happening to Babar right now, the same thing happened to Sarfaraz a few years ago. That was a big mistake and we raised our voices against that. It was a very bad move. We still haven't recovered from that,” Latif said.

"If you think you can do a reset after removing Babar from captaincy... you said that the players are complaining (about Babar). There's no one who can stand in front of him right now,” he added.

Former wicketkeeper also emphasised that Pakistan lacks competent alternatives to replace the current skipper.

“You tell me the options. How much does Shadab (Khan) play? He misses 50 percent matches due to injury. He is not an option. If Shadab is available throughout, I would've said myself that Babar can step down. Shaheen (Afridi) is out of injury as well. There's only one guy who plays all the matches,” he concluded.
