Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam's cricket journey has seen its fair share of highs and lows, and currently, he finds himself grappling with a challenging phase during the ongoing Australia tour. Having recently stepped down as captain across all three formats, Babar's struggles continued in the first Test against Australia in Perth, where his team suffered a significant 360-run defeat, and he managed scores of 21 and 14.

The disappointment in Perth, however, has not dampened Babar's spirits as he eagerly looks to bounce back in the second Test at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on December 26. The Pakistan team, led by their new captain, has been diligently preparing for the upcoming match, engaging in intense practice sessions in Melbourne.

Amidst the seriousness of training, a heartwarming and light-hearted moment unfolded when Babar took some time to interact with fans at the MCG. A viral video on social media captured the essence of this delightful encounter. Babar, known for his affable nature, was seen interacting with his female fans, graciously signing autographs for them.

In one particular instance, a female fan cheekily requested Babar's hat during the autograph signing. Much to the amusement of those present, Babar, with a twinkle in his eye, kindly declined the request. His reason? He humorously explained that he only had one hat and couldn't part ways with it.
