Tuba Hassan has an opinion about Babar Azam.
After Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam did a great job in the second T20I match against New Zealand on Saturday, Tuba Hassan, a player on the Pakistan women’s cricket team, went on Twitter to praise him.
During the game at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Babar hit 11 fours and three sixes, giving him a strike rate of 174.13. This helped the Green Shirts take a 2-0 lead in the five-game series.
The good hitter also won the Player of the Match award, giving him a total of nine Player of the Match awards in his T20I career. Mohammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan are only two awards behind him.
Tuba hailed Babar on Twitter, saying, “Another one for the history books! What a blow, what a player. Well done.”
It is important to note that Pakistan won the second T20I by 38 runs, thanks to Azam’s great batting and Haris Rauf’s four-wicket haul with the ball.
To reach their goal of 193 runs, the Kiwis could only score 154 runs in 20 overs.
The home team is up 2-0 in the series after winning the first T20I by 88 runs on Friday at the same site.
Eight Kiwis aren’t there because they are playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and the captain, Kane Williamson, has a bad knee injury. Batsman Tom Latham is taking over as captain, giving new players a lot of chances to shine.
The last three T20 games are on April 17 in Lahore, April 20 in Rawalpindi, and April 24 in Lahore.
After the T20 series, Pakistan and New Zealand will play each other in five one-day internationals. This will help them get ready for the 50-over World Cup in India this year.
