Babar’s catches is winning hearts of cricket fans

babar azam take catches

Catches might have not won matches for Babar Azam and his team but it has definitely won the hearts of cricket fans. Karachi Kings suffered their fifth loss of the tournament yesterday, but the Karachi fraternity was too impressed with Babar’s fielding to feel the loss too much.

Islamabad United won the toss and put themselves in the batting position. The Kings tried their utmost to keep the ropes of the opposition tight but each player had something to contribute, and the team managed to amass 177. Even though a chasable score, Shadab and his men were too good for Karachi batters, propelling them to yet another victory leaving only loss and disappointment for the Kings.

But Babar’s brilliance in the field offered solace to the hurting hearts of the franchise fans. The skipper three scintillating catches in the match to send three of Islamabad’s danger men back to the pavilion. Shadab Khan, Colin Munro and Asif Ali all fell prey to Azam’s safe hands.

Not only this, Babar Azam set a PSL record of most catches by a non-wicket keeper in the tournament history by taking 35 catches in the field, breaking Nawaz Khan’s record of 33 scalps. Twitter is swooning over the captain’s stunning fielding and here’s what they’re saying.
