Tuba Hasan’s big confession about Babar Azam

Pak vs SL: Twitter loads debutant leg spinner Tuba Hasan for magnificent spell

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam’s impressive performance in the second T20I against New Zealand on Saturday has earned him praise from fellow cricketers and fans alike. The match, which took place at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, saw Babar score 101 runs in 58 balls, including 11 fours and three sixes, at a strike rate of 174.13. His stunning performance helped Pakistan take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Babar also received the Player of the Match award, taking his total count to nine in his T20I career, which is only two short of teammates Mohammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan.

Following Babar’s brilliant innings, Pakistan women’s cricket team player Tuba Hassan took to Twitter to praise the skipper, calling his knock “another one for the history books” and hailing him as a phenomenal player.

In addition to Babar’s performance, pacer Haris Rauf’s four-wicket haul contributed significantly to Pakistan’s victory. The Kiwis, who were missing eight players due to the Indian Premier League (IPL), were restricted to 154-7 in 20 overs, falling short of Pakistan’s target of 193 runs by 38 runs.

Despite missing key players, the New Zealand team provided ample opportunity for newcomers to showcase their skills. Skipper Kane Williamson’s bad knee injury forced him to sit out, leaving batsman Tom Latham to captain the team.

The home team currently leads the series 2-0, having won the first T20I on Friday by 88 runs at the same venue. The remaining three T20 matches will take place on April 17 in Lahore, and on April 20 and 24 in Rawalpindi.

After the T20 series, Pakistan and New Zealand will play five one-day internationals, honing their preparations for this year’s 50-over World Cup in India.
