Watch! Babar Azam’s reaction to a question on the IPL has the twitter in splits


Pakistan are set to face England in the 2022 T20 World Cup final on Sunday at the MCG. It has been a comeback to remember as the Pakistanis were nearly out of the tournament. The Babar Azam led side had lost the first two games to India and Zimbabwe to be on the cusp of elimination from the tournament.

After wins over Netherlands and South Africa, the Pakistanis got a lifeline from unexpected source. Netherlands happened to beat South Africa by 13 runs to make the match between Bangladesh and Pakistan a knockout game, which the Pakistanis won.

The story as it happened –

Babar Azam was addressing the press ahead of the T20I world cup final. That’s when a journalist asked the Pakistan skipper a question about the IPL. The journalist asked Talk about the benefits of playing the IPL, is that something you feel would have helped you and your team, and is that something you have any hope for in the future?

Babar Azam looked perplexed at the question, because none of the Pakistan players play the IPL. The Pakistan media manager then took control once the skipper looked his way and said “We are taking questions on the World Cup final at the moment,”

Huge final at MCG –

England are bracing themselves for a huge final after their strong performance against India. The English have shown and played some amazing cricket and the cream at the top was the performance against India.

Jos Buttler and his men beat the Indian side by ten wickets to reach the summit clash. Buttler who was struggling for form struck gold against the hapless looking Indian attack. Hales on the other hand has been in good form since his comeback to the England side.

Dawid Malan and Mark Wood return to the nets –

In a further boost to English side, number 3 batter Dawid Malan and fast bowler Mark Wood are back to training. The duo missed the game against India due to injuries. This would come as a welcome sign for Buttler ahead of the big game on Sunday.
