Pakistan have played three T20 World Cup matches so far and their biggest concern is captain Babar Azam’s poor form. Babar Azam, one of the best batsmen in the world, has scored just 8 points in three games of the current tournament.
Babar Azam was sent off for just 4 runs against the Netherlands on Sunday. Indian veteran spinner Amit Mishra has mocked Babar Azam’s poor form via social media.
Amit Mishra wrote on his official Twitter account: “This too shall pass. Hold on Babar Azam.
This tweet by Mishra is considered snide as some time ago when Virat Kohli was going through a bad phase and facing criticism, Babar Azam wrote the same while tweeting. Mishra wanted to send a message to the Pakistan captain that bad times can happen to anyone.
Babar Azam had shown good form ahead of the T20 World Cup and it was believed that he would be Pakistan’s stick leader in this tournament. But from the start of the tournament, we saw him aspire to score points. In the first game against India, Babar Azam was out lbw on the very first ball. He couldn’t even open the account.
After that, the Pakistani captain was sacked after scoring just 4 points against Zimbabwe. This bad timing didn’t let Babar Azam continue even in the next game and he was sent off after scoring 4 points against the Netherlands. However, Pakistan beat the Netherlands by 6 wickets on Sunday to register their first victory in the T20 World Cup. Previously, they lost to India and Zimbabwe.
Let us tell you that it has become very difficult for Pakistan to reach the semi-finals of the current T20 World Cup. The Pakistan team depended on India that if they beat South Africa, the Men in Green would have a chance to reach the top 4 by winning all of their matches. But on Sunday, South Africa beat India by 5 wickets, after which Pakistan’s exit from the tournament is almost certain. Last year, at the T20 World Cup, the Pakistani team made it to the semi-finals.
