As India and Pakistan are set to clash in an ICC T20 World Cup match in Dubai, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar urged Babar Azam to play freely. The match between the two nations is played under huge pressure which leads to mistakes from the players. Though the Virat Kohli-led team has a superior track record against the Men in Green, Pakistan have got an outstanding squad that can defeat any opponents on a given day.
In order to beat India, Akhtar gave a piece of advice to the Pakistan captain. Akhtar took it to his official Twitter account and wrote: “Important baat @babarazam258: Sab Se Pehle, Aap nay ghabrana nahi hai :),” the Tweet read.
Babar Azam is one of the best players in international cricket. His performance will define the outcome of the match against the arch-rivals. He will play his first global event of the shortest format and will have the responsibility for motivating the players.
Ahead of the crucial encounter, the PCB chairman Ramiz Raja also wished the national side. He tweeted: “Best of luck to you boys for the WC campaign. Just remember millions of hearts beat with you and millions more are praying for you #PakistanZindabad.”
