Zainab Abbas Angers Babar Azam With An Odd Tweet

It was a sigh of relief for everyone who was either in the dug-out or the watching on television screens when mercurial Babar Azam tucked one off his paid for a double to complete his first-ever Test hundred. strange

The innings was special in so many ways; it came at a time when Pakistan needed it, it was his first after 17 Tests and most importantly because Babar had missed one in the last series when he got out on 99.

Even this time around, Babar had to wait almost an hour before he could convert his 99 into three figures. This made his maiden Test hundred even more exciting for everyone.

Every player in the pavilion was happy as they might have been for their own Test hundreds; the captain, the coach and the management staff too.

Similar was the case back at home where young Babar’s fans were pitching in big time to congratulate the centurion.

Sports anchor Zainab Abbas was among those who heaped praises for the 24-year-old batsman but her words didn’t really serve the purpose.

Babar Azam, who is generally known for his soft grins and happy-go-lucky nature in the team, reacted rather angrily to what seemed to be strange but harmless remarks from Zainab.

She tweeted, “Well played Babar Azam – loved how the boys went congratulating Mickey Arthur celebrating his “son’s” century.”

Babar either misunderstood her sense of humor –as he is considered Mickey Arthur’s most favorite- or he just didn’t like the notion.

Azam responded with a harsh tone warning Zainab from “crossing her limits.”

There were mixed reactions on Twitter with people supporting both parties. Some hardcore Babar fans lambasted Zainab’s ‘over efficiency’ while others found it a witty but harmless comment.

Azam ended unbeaten 127 when Pakistan declared their innings at 418/5.
