“Babar Azam scoring century for fun”, Twitter bows down to Babar Azam’s batting supremacy

Twitter stunned as Babar Azam scores another century: It has been an inspiring cricketing spectacle from Sri Lanka in the midst of an unprecedented political firestorm that has consumed the nation and further decline looming monstrously on the horizon. Taking down a high-flying Australia emphatically instilled confidence in the Lankans that their lost glory can be restored only if they believed.

As they are hosting Pakistan, their batters went completely off the rail with Shaheen Afridi running riot. However, their bowlers conjured a rock-solid display to write off any chance that the visitors had of running away with a significant lead, as Prabath Jayasuriya razed through half the Pakistani side, making it personal.

Here is what Twitter had to say about Babar Azam

While Pakistan fumbled in the dark, there was their signature rock who would provide support to the Pakistani bulwark, wobbling dangerously in the midst of choppy waters. Babar Azam waged a single-handed war against the Lankan infringements that would stay witness to him carving a string of gorgeous cricketing strokes under the pump.

With the Sri Lankan spinner chipping away at the wickets, Babar Azam would take a solid stand, coming out to bat at number 4, forging a handful of decent partnerships that saw Mohammad Rizwan chiming with a small cameo. There would be further support from the tail, that would witness Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali proving to be the anchor while Azam continued with his onslaught.

This was his 7th century in the longest format of the sport, underlining the quality that he has brought to the platter, of late. A string of fine knocks has been creating ripples across the face of the planet as the Pakistani skipper continued with his imperious domination.

Twitter was in absolute awe of Azamโ€™s resilience in front of an invasive Lankan force, especially with bare minimum support from the other ends. There was a flurry of tweets adulating the cricketing genius of the Pakistani captain.
