The Pakistan cricket team losing to Sri Lanka doesn’t make netizens love Babar Azam any less

Sri Lanka beat Pakistan on the final day of the second Test series but Twitter was full of praise for the Pakistani skipper.
28 Jul, 2022

The Sri Lanka versus Pakistan Test series cemented something we already knew — Babar Azam is everyone’s favourite player. Even when Sri Lanka won the match by 246 runs on Thursday, Twitter was full of praise for the Pakistani captain.

The skipper has also reached a new milestone — securing the third spot in the ICC’s ranking for top batsman in every format.

Azam stood unbeaten in Pakistan’s monumental chase of 508 runs up until Sri Lankan spinner Prabath Jayasuriya took two wickets on day five to lead his team to victory in the second Test. Sri Lanka won by 246 runs on the fifth day of the series.

For this Twitter user, Azam was the last hope for the people of Pakistan.

“Imagine the pressure on that guy, batting his team out of the pressure situations, scoring almost 60 per cent of the team runs every time, batting with the tail-enders,” wrote one user, who called Azam “truly the best”.

For this one it’s Babar versus Sri Lanka.

He’s a “one man army”.

People were praising the GOAT for his form.

Whether you win or lose, we still love you, wrote some netizens.

Azam’s smile is enough for this user.

For this user what’s important is to cherish the team for “the best times” they gave us.

Azam wasn’t the only cricketer being appreciated.

This user reasoned that we can’t expect one man to rescue us every match. “Babar is always batting as a lone warrior,” they wrote.

What were your thoughts on the match?

Cricket is a team game. Not a game of individual gladiators who play for personal glory.

@Omveer Singh Calling cricket a team game is insulting to other team games.

As good a player babar Azam is,can't vouch for his captaincy credentials..he seems to be quite poor tactically backed by poor coaching staff .How on earth can you go with three fast bowlers on a proven spin heaven of galle,which he did during the first test .Everyone knows the fragilities of Pak batting and then you go with such thin batting line up where Nawaz,who has a poor batting record,bats at 7.Again going with so many bowlers ,when you jus need couple of good spinners to do the job for you in galle.Also,he backing of Hassan Ali and other below par performers on regular basis ,who don't perform at all,raises lot of questions.

Well played SL. A strong SL is good for cricket and good for Pakistan. Pakistanis never forget the love shown to us by SL in times of hardship when India dissuaded so many from touring our nation. We hope our tour has helped lift some of the gloom.

Pakistan Team batsmen who play one good innings and then take it easy for the next five games, should be dropped from the team. These are tactics of the Old team. If Pakistan want's to be on the TOP, then we must keep players who are Consistant.

@Omveer Singh your comment reminded me of Sachin Tendulkar who only played for himself ... never for his team.

Babar seems to be carrying the entire team on his shoulders. Others need to step up, especially the bowlers

we will have to drop baber azam so that he can rest...he is no longer the mainstay of the team...his complete failure against sri lanka spinners is a case in point...failure is pretty pathetic whether it is of hamza shebaz or baber azam...he must notice his own flaws and rectify them...

good batsman but average captain. good aggressive mindset, but surviving on chances and running out batsmen, also poor team selection and strategy and dropping catches. All of this would’ve worked at home, or against lesser teams.

Babar is a very good bat, and he cant do it all the time. Others need to take responsibility. Rizwan had a relatively poor series, and Fawad and Azhar two seniors are done in my opinion.

others really need to produce consistently. I for one knew Abdullah after his mammoth was not going to score in the 2nd ....other batters should contribute, i think Rizwan and Salman are batting too high ....we are lacking at least 2 decent batters, why was Shan not used is unbelievable?
