Following another single-digit score, Babar Azam faces severe backlash on Twitter. Following scores of 0, 4, and 4 in the first three matches, Babar Azam was dismissed for 6 runs in the T20 World Cup 2022 Group 2 encounter against South Africa.
Another T20 World Cup 2022 appearance, another score in the single digits for Babar Azam. Babar struggled to establish himself against South Africa’s intimidating pace assault from the outset. The first hitter managed only 6 runs on 15 pitches while failing to hit a single boundary. Lungi Ngidi, who had previously ran riot against India, eventually fired him. Soon after Babar ejected for cheap once again, supporters flocked to Twitter to criticize the batter for his terrible performances in the competition.
Babar began the competition against India on the worst possible note, being dismissed for a duck by Arshdeep Singh. Babar scored only 8 runs in the two subsequent matches, against Zimbabwe and the Netherlands. In a must-win match against South Africa, Pakistan’s captain was removed for 6 runs.
On Twitter, here’s how fans responded to Babar’s horror show:
Babar made the decision to bat first after winning the toss. Pakistan made one change to their lineup, with Mohammad Haris replacing Fakhar Zaman.
“We’ll bat. Put runs up and then put them under pressure in the chase. We shall do our best and then go on. One change for us: Fakhar is out, but Haris is in “He mentioned this during the coin toss.
Pakistan entered the encounter against South Africa with nothing less than a win in mind. A loss to the Proteas would mark the end of their tournament. Though a win would not immediately qualify them for the semi-finals, it would keep them alive for another day.
