New Delhi. Today’s Asia Cup 2022 match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is scheduled. Both their bowling and batting have been outstanding for Pakistan in this competition. However, Babar Azam’s poor performance is Pakistan’s biggest worry. In this tournament, Pakistan’s batsmen scored a lot of runs, but captain Babar Azam’s bat was silent.
Gautam Gambhir commented on Babar Azam’s batting
Gautam Gambhir, a former cricketer for India, also offered his thoughts on captain Babar Azam’s performance. It is difficult to play huge shots against Sri Lankan bowlers Hasranga or Thikshana, Gambhir stated on an episode of Star Sports Game Plan. However, Babar Azam’s dot ball in the most recent game against Sri Lanka shocked me. Playing for 15 overs does not restore your form, according to Gambhir. To get into shape, one must play solid shots and score runs.
Babar Azam is currently among the best batsmen, according to Gautam Gambhir. However, if you are competing for singles and doubles, either your form is weak or your mental approach was flawed when you arrived and believed that you only needed to play 15-20 overs to establish form.
Pakistan team is dependent on Mohammad Rizwan: Gambhir
When asked if Pakistan’s batting lineup is dependent on their skipper Babar Azam, Gambhir responded that Mohammad Rizwan, the team’s wicketkeeper-batsman, currently plays a larger role. Let us inform you that Mohammad Rizwan is this tournament’s second-highest run scorer. Virat Kohli leads this list with 276 runs scored in this competition, while Rizwan has scored 226 runs in five games.
Asia Cup 2022: Babar Azam returned cheaply against India, social media flooded with memes
In the most important Asia Cup encounter, India faced the greatest threat from Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam. Babar, who was in good shape, also emitted a sense of threat. He played successive strong innings without fail to get to this match against India. Indian athletes were still cognizant of what Babar had done to Team India during the T20 World Cup the previous year. In this circumstance, Babur needed to be attacked with a precise and deliberate plan. India did not require any kind of caution or strategy to contain them, however, whether it was due to his goodwill or the pressure to play against Arch Rivals.
Against India at the Dubai International Cricket Ground, Pakistan’s skipper Babar got off to a strong start. As soon as he arrived, he also hit two terrific boundaries. He was spotted in his usual class, but his innings ended at 9 balls. Babar Azam left the field after just scoring 10 runs. In the third over, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, an Indian fast bowler, struck him out.
There was quiet among all the Pakistani fans in the stadium as a result of this setback for their country. Following Babar’s firing, social media was inundated with memes. One commenter described Babar as a young person who studied hard for the test but did poorly on the final.
