‘Babur-Rizwan are selfish’… why did Shaheen Afridi say this
After Pakistan’s victory in the second T20 against England, the team’s star fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has made a shocking tweet. With this tweet, Afridi hit back at those who criticized captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan for their slow batting in the Asia Cup. Before Asia, Babar Azam was struggling with his form. On the other hand, Mohammad Rizwan’s strike was very less.
However, in the second T20 match against England, Babar and Rizwan remained unbeaten and led the team to a 10-wicket victory. In this match, the England team made a challenging score of 199 runs, in response to which the hosts scored 203 runs in 19.3 overs with the help of 110 runs from Babar Azam and 88 runs from Mohammad Rizwan. He won the match to his name.
After the strong game of Babar and Rizwan, Shaheen Afridi’s happiness knew no bounds. With his tweet, he targeted those who were earlier criticizing Babar and Rizwan. Afridi tweeted, ‘I think it’s time to get rid of Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Both are selfish players. A match should end in 15 overs if played properly. He took it to the end. Should there be a movement on this? Proud of this amazing Pakistani team.
Let us inform that Afridi is an important member of the Pakistan team but due to injury during the tour of Sri Lanka, he is being run out. He could not play for Pakistan in the Asia Cup due to injury. He has also been ruled out of the home T20 series against England. In such a situation, Afridi was doing rehabilitation at this time keeping in mind the preparations for the T20 World Cup.
Not only Shaheen, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has also become giddy with this victory of Pakistan. Shahid Afridi heaped praise on captain Babar Azam and Rizwan. He tweeted, ‘What a wonderful way to end the game. This match will be a match for Babar and Rizwan as well as for the country. When you’re at your best, you can’t last long at your worst. Let us tell you that the first match in this seven-match series was won by the England team. In such a situation, host Pakistan has made a spectacular comeback and has now leveled 1-1.
