Pakistan had a difficult start to the 20-20 World Cup campaign in Australia. They lost both of their first matches against India and Zimbabwe respectively. However, they managed to win the remaining matches and they got qualified for the semi-final. On 9 November 2022, Pakistan defeated New Zealand and qualified for the final.
Now, on 13 November, the Men in Green will face England at the MCG for the final of the ongoing World Cup. However, Babar Azam and his men will look to win the World Cup this time around. Now, a video has gone viral where the Pakistan skipper looked stunned by a question from one journalist.
Here is the shared video:
Babar Azam has scored 92 runs in six matches so far in the World Cup
Speaking of the incident, it took place during the press conference ahead of the World Cup final. There one journalist asked: “Talk about the benefits of playing the Indian T20 League, is that something you feel would have helped you and your team, and is that something you have any hope for in the future?”
Listening to that question, Babar Azam looked absolutely stunned. He immediately turned to the Pakistan media manager who was standing to his right. Then, the manager said: “We are taking questions on the World Cup final at the moment.” Since 2009, no Pakistani players have played in the Indian T20 League due to political reasons.
However, team India have failed to win the 20-20 World Cup since the introduction of the Indian T20 League. Speaking about Babar Azam, the Pakistan skipper has scored 92 runs so far in six matches in the ongoing World Cup. After failing to score in the group stage, Babar Azam scored 53 runs off 42 balls against the Kiwis in the semi-final. Seeing some from the skipper with the bat before the final, Pakistani fans got relieved. On 13 November, Babar Azam and his men will lock horns with England at the MCG in order to win their second 20-20 World Cup title.
