Babar Azam, the captain of the Peshawar Zalmi side in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023), came up with a witty response to a reporter about how he greets his opposition captains during the matches.
Babar, who was with Karachi Kings till the last PSL season, moved to Peshawar Zalmi and took over the captaincy from Wahab Riaz. Zalmi is currently placed 4th on the PSL 8 points table with 2 wins and 2 losses in their account and a net run rate of -1.137.
In one of the biggest fixtures of the PSL 2023, Babar’s Peshawar Zalmi will meet the Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars franchise at Lahore. And before the encounter, Babar faced questions from reporters and one of them lauded him for greeting his opposition captains with a smile.
Babar was praised for his generosity as the Pakistan captain shares a good camaraderie with his teammates, who are plying their trade in the elite Pakistani league.
Taking cognisance of the reporter’s question, Babar came up with a brilliant response and said: “Ro kar milon unhain? Kya kare, nahi khele fir? Aap bataye…(Should I cry and meet him, or should I not play? Please tell me…).”
After the whole room burst into laughter, Babar opened up about his duel with Afridi in the T20 tournament.
Playing Against Him Is A Challenge: Babar Azam On Shaheen Afridi
Babar Azam called Lahore Qalandars’ captain Shaheen Afridi Pakistan’s best bowler and said that he feels it’s a challenge facing Shaheen and gives him confidence as well, if he does well against the left-arm pacer.
Incidentally, Shaheen Afridi is making a comeback to cricket with the PSL 8, after reinjuring his knee during the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 and had been out of action since then.
“Whether we play against Shaheen and Lahore, the effort is always to give the best. The kind of bowler that he is and the way he is bowling presently, everyone knows that he is one of Pakistan’s best bowlers. He is improving day-by-day. Playing against him is a challenge and also gives me confidence, since I am playing the best bowler. It is difficult at times. Sometimes I dominate, sometimes he does,” Babar explained.
Babar and Shaheen will face off in match No.15 of the PSL 2023 between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi at the Gaddafi Stadium on Sunday.
