Babar Azam replied a reporter in style during press conference after the second test.
The visitors thrashed the hosts by 26 runs and took an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series. It is Pakistan’s third consecutive loss in tests at their home soil. On Day 4 of test match, Pakistan were on 198/4 and chasing 355 runs but their innings collapsed on the score of 326.
Pakistan were in good position at the start of the day as Shakeel & Imam-ul-Haq hammered their respective half-centuries but they could not last long against the relentless bowling of pacer Mark Wood who dismissed both the batters before the lunch. Pakistan lost 5 of their wickets on 210 runs and eventually they were bundled out on the score of 326.
After the game, Babar was surrounded by the reporters where one of the reporters asked him Babar yeh fans k taraf se ek sawal hai, unka kehna tha Babar aur Rizwan jo hain, unko apna focus T20 pe karna chahiye, kyuki jaise woh out hote hain puri team down ho jati hain (This question is from the fans, who feel that Babar and Rizwan should focus in T20s. As they get out the rest of the team crumbles.)”
Babar responded to the question by saying “Toh aap keh rahe hain Test chhor de? (So you are saying, we should stop playing Test?)”
After that reporter further asked “Aap kya soch rahe hain is baare mein, T20 mein jaana chahiye (What are your thoughts on it, should you play T20?)” Babar replied to the question by saying “Sir, aisa kuch nahi soch rahe hum (Sir I’m not thinking anything like that.)”
