In Twenty20 cricket, India and Pakistan are eternal rivals. The heat of political animosity between the two neighboring countries can be seen in many other cases. However, many have a good personal relationship.
In addition, former Pakistan stars are occasionally seen talking about cricketers of the two teams, especially Indian cricketers. Especially Shoaib Akhtar is ahead of everyone in this regard. Besides, neither Salman Butt nor Shahid Afridi miss the opportunity.
But this time, India’s star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin spoke about Pakistan cricketers. In a new episode of ‘Forty Shades of Ash’ on his YouTube channel, he has revealed the name of his favorite Pakistani star.
On the show, he was asked which Pakistani player was his favorite. In reply, Ashwin named Pakistan captain Babar Azam, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan and fast bowler Shahin Afridi. However, his favorite cricketer among these three is Babar Azam.
The legendary Indian spinner said about Babar Azam, he is a great cricketer. He can bat well in all conditions of the world. “I personally follow Rizwan and talk about his talent whenever I get the chance,” he said. He has gifted many effective and match winning innings for the team.
Apart from Babar and Rizwan, Ashwin’s fascination with Pakistani star pacer Shahin Afridi is endless. “Shahin Afridi is a real talent,” Ashwin said of the world’s best bowler. Pakistan has always had talented cricketers and now they have more talent.
Pakistan lost to India by a huge margin of 10 wickets in the last T20 World Cup. And with this, for the first time on the stage of the World Cup, the Babars have lost their eternal rivals. Meanwhile, in the context of the match, Ashwin admitted that the Pakistani trio of Babar, Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi played a key role in India’s defeat in that match.
India scored 151 runs in the allotted 20 overs after batting first in this match on October 24. On this day, Shaheen single-handedly took the wickets of important batsmen like KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and broke the waist of Team India.
After that Pakistan reached the port of victory without losing any wicket. Pak bowlers Babar Azam and Rizwan did not find the Indian bowlers. Shahin Shah Afridi was named Man of the Match in the match.
Despite the team captain suffering from rain, Pakistan is having a great time in Baishag. Babar Azam Bahini is flying from the last T20 World Cup. This time they also defeated West Indies at home. With one match in hand, they have won the T20 series 2-0.
