Gibbs takes a dig at Babar Azam

Former South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs took a sly swipe at Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, as the team chased a formidable target of 402 runs in a high-stakes match against New Zealand on Saturday.

While batting first, New Zealand achieved an impressive total of 401-6, which stands as the second-highest score. This remarkable performance was driven by outstanding contributions from Rachin Ravindra, who scored 108, Kane Williamson with 95, and Glenn Phillips adding 41 to the tally.

Meanwhile, the Babar Azam-led Pakistan team is currently in pursuit of this target.

Taking over his social media platform, Gibbs raised eyebrows and made a cheeky remark about Babar Azam’s capabilities as a captain and player who has scored 47 runs off 51 balls.

Can someone tell babar they chasing 400 …

As of the moment, Pakistan has reached a score of 160/1 in 21.3 overs. However, rain has interrupted the game, with the Men in Green being ten runs ahead of the required DLS (Duckworth-Lewis-Stern) score.

In the current standings, New Zealand occupies the fourth position in the 10-team table with eight points, following four wins and three defeats. Pakistan, with six points, must secure a victory to stay in contention for a semi-final spot.
