Despite receiving harsh criticism in the media, Pakistan’s all-format captain, Babar Azam always keeps his aggression under control and answers questions politely.
Occasionally, during press conferences, Babar Azam has been found engaging in amusing conversations with reporters, the most recent of which occurred yesterday in Karachi.
After Peshawar Zalmi suffered a six-wicket defeat in their fourth encounter against Islamabad United, Babar Azam was left utterly surprised by a journalist with his question.
The journalist asked Babar Azam, “You must have got a boost after today’s success, but don’t you think Peshawar Zalmi’s fielding was not up to the required standard?”
Babar Azam was quick to respond to the journalist’s question, saying, “Not success, we have lost,” and then hilariously told, “You have made us win. I am still stuck on that.”
