Pakistan captain Babar Azam apologised for his comments on Hasan Ali’s dropped catch of Australia’s Matthew Wade in the semifinal, claiming that dropped catches were part of the game and not the reason for Pakistan’s loss.
Babar Azam tried to explain away his team’s loss to Australia in the T20 World Cup 2021 semifinals by arguing that players dropping catches was part of the game and that the costly error was not the reason of his team’s demise.
After Wade hit three consecutive sixes off Shaheen Shah Afridi in the 19th over, Babar asserted during the post-match presentation that the match could have been different had the catch been taken.

“Unfortunately, the show was cancelled, but that’s fine; he will progress.”
Babar also defended the team’s composition, denying that Pakistan should have used more spinners against Australia’s quick bowlers.
“We had Shoaib Malik and (Mohammad) Hafeez as spinners, but we couldn’t use them due to the conditions.” Due to his appearance, I did not provide Hafeez bhai any more overs today.” Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf were outstanding, as was Shadab Khan. “We kept to our guns and stuck to our guns.
