Babar Azam makes the headlines so frequently, it's not surprising to anyone anymore. The captain has done it again — he stepped into what seemed like a hopeless Test match against Australia and turned it around with a 196-run inning that had even his opponents applauding him. He has international players singing his praises and his fans are fizzing with glee. Pakistani Twitter has termed him the GOAT — the Greatest Of All Time.

The second Test against Australia ended in a draw.

ESPN called the captain "Ice cool Babar", adding him on top of the list of Pakistani batters who scored highest in the fourth innings of a Test match.

A great captain carries his team forward towards victory and remembers to acknowledge them.

Azam is truly "making history over and over again."

Netizens have showered him in praises.

From this,

To this.

Azam really changed the game.

This was truly well deserved.

The captain is reigniting people's interest in cricket.

Fans were so happy, they had a new version of the national anthem for him.

It really was a good morning for Azam's fans.

There were some who were disappointed about that he wasn't able to make it to a double century.

Overall, people feel confident about the future of Pakistani cricket.

Congratulations to the captain!

This innings will go down in history as one of the greatest fights in the 4th inning of a test. He is a living legend ! MashAllah.

This GOAT man has really revived our cricket at the international front. He is an inspiration for younger generation.

If Babar Azam has played his second innings a little more aggressively then result would have been different. Australian bowlers were simply clueless where to bowl,that time Pakistani batsmen would have taken advantage.

Well played, how I wish it was a victory for Pakistan

Don’t know about GOAT as yet but he has definitely taken the first step towards it. This is the first time when he has had to perform with back to wall and against a quality non minnow team. He has to do this more often, in seaming, swinging conditions against top 4 teams only then he can be included amongst Smith, Root, Williamson and Kohli!

With this knock and it's overall implications on the test match has made him the undisputed greatest batsman of this present era.

An innings of multiple dimensions, it was probably the best in modern era. Immense talent, indeed!
Jeem Mar 17, 2022 02:10pm

Babar should not get married till he wins the world cup for Pakistan- Shoaib Akhtar This is the first time I agree with him.
