Twitter Reactions: Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez guide Pakistan to their first T20I series win since October 2018

Posted On

World’s No.1 ranked T20 batsman Babar Azam (66), and veteran cricketer Mohammad Hafeez (67) smashed unbeaten half-centuries against Bangladesh in the second game at Gaddafi Stadium to take 2-0 lead in the three-match series on Saturday. This was crucial for both the batsmen as they failed to perform in the first match.

Earlier, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first, but once again, the batsmen disappointed with their performance, and the visitors could only post 136-6 in 20 overs. Opener Tamim Iqbal was the lone warrior who slammed 53-balls 65.

Chasing 137 in home conditions was not going to be a difficult task, and the hosts did precisely the same. Pakistan did lose their first wicket for just six runs in the form of Ahsan Ali (0), but Babar and Hafeez didn’t let the tourist team dominate them further and won the contest by nine wickets.

Captain Babar was gratified with the ‘Player of the Match’ award.
