Market Desk (sports): England was crushed in Karachi as Pakistan’s under-fire openers inflicted upon them the biggest 10 wicket win in T20I history.
Only in Pakistan, where expectation and passion reach levels other places around the globe cannot comprehend, could captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan – the number one ranked players in ODI and T20I respectively run to the crease feeling such heat.
But they doused things spectacularly in a stunning double century stand with Babar leading the way with an unbeaten 110.
Babar Azam was flop in the recently concluded Asia Cup. However, he made a strong possibility of becoming the highest run-getter in the tournament by making consecutive runs before the Asia Cup.
But unfortunately he could not give his best in the Asia Cup. That’s why his team reached the final but lost the title with Sri Lanka. Because of this, he and the Pakistan team under his leadership had to endure criticism.
However, Babar Azam regained his lost form against England at home.
