captain of pakistan cricket team Babar Azmi Asia Cup is in great form before 2022. The Men in Green are on a tour of the Netherlands where Babar scored three fifties and 203 runs at an average of 101.50 in three matches. However, Babar could not score with a strike rate of more than 80. And it put Pakistan cricket fans in a dilemma. The Pakistan captain has been criticized by many cricket pundits for his poor strike rate in T20Is as well. Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq also said that Babar has to score runs at a higher strike rate if he wants to become number one in T20Is.
As Babar scored another half-century at less than 80 strike rate, Pakistan fans took to Twitter to troll their captain – here are some reactions
