Pakistan had some positives in an otherwise dull first match against Australia in Rawalpindi. The match ended in a tame draw as bowlers from both teams struggled big time. The Test action has now moved to Karachi, where Australia are batting first after winning the toss. Meanwhile, a video of Babar Azam lashing out at a journalist is going viral on social media. 

The journalist questioned Babar how the batters will respond if Australian bowlers dominate Pakistan in the second Test. Babar lost cool at the journalist and said that a journalist’s queries should be objective and unbiased.

“You can’t just claim that Australians will dominate us. Keep your questions balanced and unbiased. Pakistan batters dominated Australians in the first Test. We also scored hundreds, with Abdullah Shafique batting maturely and Imam scoring back-to-back tons. Our senior pro, Azhar Ali, also batted well, and we got a lot of momentum,” he said.

Here is the video:

Adding further, Azam said that the players are high on confidence after the first match. He pointed out that batters played with a run rate of 4-4.5 in the first match.

“I think you need to look at the opponent as well. All four of their bowlers are high on confidence, and the way our batters dominated them, they also took the run-rate to 4-4.5. You cannot dominate every session. When opposition dominates, you need to absorb pressure and not lose wickets,” he added.

The second match of the series is underway at the National Stadium in Karachi. The wicket is a lot better than the first match and the match is expected to be a lot more exciting.
