Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam is showing his fire in Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023) these days. In the new season, by captaining the new team, he is trying to get the title. He is trying to show his strength in the field, even in the press conference outside the field, he is seen in a funny mood and is giving funny answers to the questions of journalists. However, in this attempt, he said something that reminded Team India’s captain Rohit Sharma.
Under the captaincy of Babar, Peshawar Zalmi has started well and the team has won two out of 4 matches, while they have lost the same number of matches. On the other hand, Babar’s previous team Karachi Kings is in a bad condition and has got only 1 win out of five. Last season, Babar was the captain of Karachi and then the team could win only one out of 10 matches. In such a situation, there was a lot of criticism of Babar’s captaincy and it was believed that after Babar’s withdrawal from the team, Karachi’s performance would be better.
Babar’s ‘Rohit style’ reply
At the moment it does not seem to be happening and Karachi is at number five among 6 teams. Babar’s team Peshawar is one place above that. In such a situation, when Babar was asked the reason for the condition of Karachi and how to improve, Babar somewhat copied Rohit Sharma’s answer and said, I am a bit of a coach, which you are asking me. You talk about our match.
Rohit robbed the party in 2019
Remind you that in 2019, Team India’s star opener Rohit Sharma gave a similar answer to a Pakistani journalist. India defeated Pakistan in the 2019 ODI World Cup held in England. Babar Azam was also a part of that match. Rohit had scored an excellent century in that match. After the match, when a Pakistani journalist asked Rohit what advice he would like to give to Pakistan’s batsmen, Rohit had said, the day I become Pakistan’s coach, I will definitely tell that day. It seems that Babar must have seen Rohit’s press conference that day and now after learning from him, gave such a funny answer.
