Former South African batting star Herschell Gibbs came up with a tweet taking a dig at the Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Gibbs targeted the latter for his slow approach while batting for the run-chase of 402 runs in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 match against New Zealand. Notably, both teams are playing the 35th match of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

Skipper Babar Azam and the blistering opener Fakhar Zaman are there in the middle for Pakistan as they have scored 160 runs for the loss of just 1 wicket in 21.3 overs before rain interrupted the match while chasing the target of 402 runs against the Blackcaps.

Babar Azam has scored 47 runs off 51 balls with 4 fours and a six at the time of rain interruption, which seems not to go well with the former star Proteas batter Herschelle Gibbs.

“Can someone tell Babar they chasing 400,” wrote Gibbs in a post on his official X handle (formerly Twitter).

Here’s a look at the post from Herschelle Gibbs:

 

Speaking of the action of the match, the action resumed after the rain interruption and Pakistan had scored 168 runs for the loss of 1 wicket in 22.4 overs, having Babar and Fakhar on the individual scores of 55 and 106 runs, respectively, while chasing the revised target of 342 runs in the 41-over game. 

Earlier in the first innings, New Zealand posted a massive total of 401 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in the allotted 50 overs courtesy of the brilliant knocks played by skipper Kane Williamson and young in-form batting sensation Rachin Ravindra. Williamson scored 95 runs whereas Ravindra smashed his third century in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, scoring 108 runs off just 94 balls, hitting 15 balls and a six.
