PAK vs ENG: Babar Azam is back in form. In the second T20 match played in Karachi on Thursday night, Babar made a strong comeback in form by scoring an unbeaten 110 off 66 balls. On the basis of Babar’s innings, Pakistan achieved the huge target of 199 by scoring 203 runs without losing any wicket. This victory of Pakistan was historic in the sense that for the first time a team achieved the target of 200 without losing a wicket and the second captain Babar scored a second century while chasing the target in T20. Wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan also played an important role in Pakistan’s victory. Rizwan played an innings of 88 runs in 51 balls. After this spectacular and emphatic victory of Pakistan, the tone of all those former Pakistan cricketers has started changing, who were questioning the batting of Pakistan team and captain Babar Azam and Rizwan after the defeat in the final of Asia Cup. Shoaib Akhtar was the first and biggest name among the players who changed the tone.

Shoaib’s tone changed completely after Babar Azam’s century. Shoaib Akhtar, who questioned Babar Azam’s batting and strike rate 4 days ago, called Babar the best batsman in the world. Also said that earlier Kohli was known for run chases but now that place has been taken by Babar.
Pakistan needs such batting
Shoaib Akhtar on his YouTube channel said that the way Babar and Rizwan batted for Pakistan chasing a big target of 200 runs, the Pakistan team needs to bat like this. Akhtar said that if Babar and Rizwan bat with the same strike, then it will not be difficult for Pakistan to achieve any target.
