In an intimate interaction with fans on his social media platform ‘X’, former Pakistan cricket captain Babar Azam has opened up about various emotional moments in his illustrious career and shared aspirations for the future.
Recalling pivotal moments, Azam expressed, “There have been many emotional moments. When I made my debut was one of them, while becoming captain was an emotional moment too. But, the loss against Zimbabwe in the World Cup was heartbreaking,” Babar said.
The former captain went on to highlight some of his personal favorite innings, stating, “My century in Brisbane against Australia in 2019 and the 196-run knock in the second Test against Australia in Karachi in 2022 are my favorites in Tests. In white-ball cricket, 158 against England in Birmingham and T20I centuries against South Africa and New Zealand hold a special place in my heart,” he said.
Expressing his dedication to representing Pakistan on the global stage, Azam stated, “I want to play in every upcoming World Cup and help Pakistan win.”
During the interaction, the right-hand batter was quizzed about the batter with the most elegant cover drive, to which he promptly responded, “Steve Smith.”
