“Ya kya Karna ki koshish kar raha ho aap loog??? This is pathetic !!!Khush ho gaya aap loog. Please leave @babarazam258 alone 🙏🏽. He’s an asset of Pakistan Cricket @TheRealPCB @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL @Salman_ARY,” he wrote on X.
Former Pakistan captain Waqar Younis was angry about what was going on and told people to leave Babar Azam alone, stressing how important he is to Pakistan cricket. The issue makes it harder for Pakistan to do well in the World Cup, which is still going on. Some people think that Babar Azam might not be captain anymore because the team hasn’t done very well. The private WhatsApp conversation adds to the story about the team as Pakistan gets ready to play Bangladesh in Kolkata. Pakistan is currently in sixth place in the points table, having won only two of their six games.
