New Delhi. For the last few innings, the bat of Pakistani Captain Babar Azam was going silent. On the other hand, Mohammad Rizwan was constantly on the target of cricket experts due to slow innings. However, when the bat of both the players went, it ran fiercely. In the second T20 International match played against England in Karachi, both the players made an unbroken double century partnership and led the team to victory. During this, Babar Jahan managed to score the second century of his T20 career. At the same time, Rizwan scored the 18th half-century of his T20 career. During this, the strike rate of both the players was also around 170.00.
Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have given a befitting reply to their critics due to their excellent innings played in Karachi. Not only this, his critics are also appreciating him after seeing his excellent innings. Former Indian team cricketer Mohammad Kaif is also overwhelmed to see this innings of Babar-Rizwan and has appreciated him.
