England bowlers were left to the mercy of Babar Azam, who was ruthless in his carnage at Cardiff. Bringing out his explosive stroke play, the right-hander carried his stunning T20 form with an impactful half-century.
Rescuing his side from dire straits after the loss of 2 early wickets, the youngster was pivotal in his partnership with Haris Sohail, racking up 65 off 42 balls. Babar’s impeccable knock received tremendous from cricket fans all over, including a special tweet from senior Pakistani politician Asad Umar.
Driving home the point that Babar validated his no.1 spot in the T20 rankings, the former Finance Minister appreciated the class of the 24-year-old. Asad Umar also remarked that the English bowlers had no hope of dismissing Babar the conventional way and could only get him out via a run-out.
