‘Khushdil Shah Deserves To Get Recognized’- Babar Azam’s Generous Gesture To Khushdil Shah After The 1st ODI Against West Indies

PAK vs WI Live Update: It would not be an exaggeration to state that Babar Azam is the finest batsman in the world of cricket at present. Babar Azam is currently dominating the sport. Following his match-winning century against West Indies in the first one-day international that took place in Multan, Pakistan skipper Babar climbed yet another high on Wednesday. Babar is now in the form of his life. Babar broke a world record by scoring 103 runs off 107 balls to lead Pakistan to a successful chase of the West Indies’ total of 305 with four balls remaining. In doing so, he also became the quickest batsman in ODI history to amass 1000 runs while captaining his team.

After scoring 114 and 105 not out against Australia a few months ago, Babar reached this century, making it his third straight century. It was only fitting that Babar should be recognized as the Player of the Match for his outstanding performance. However, just as the announcer was about to call out his name, the Pakistan captain walked up to the stage and, in a truly remarkable act, gave the award to Khushdil Shah, another member of their team. Shah, who did not get out despite having scored 41 runs off 23 balls with one boundary and four sixes, was the player primarily responsible for Pakistan getting through the finishing line.

After that, Pakistan added 106 runs for the third wicket, thanks in large part to Babar’s century and Mohammad Rizwan’s 59. But even though both batsmen were removed from the game in rapid succession, Shah scored quickly and ensured that his side would come out on top.

“I made an effort to get some perspective on the circumstance I found myself in. For the last two years, I have been concentrating on improving my hitting. The coaching camp that took place over the last ten to twelve days was beneficial. Throughout this process, the coaches have been of assistance to me. I was sitting there anticipating the arrival of the balls in my best zone,” Shah remarked during the presentation ceremony that took place after the match.

Babar made an appearance and addressed the audience as the victorious captain. He praised Shah’s performance as being exceptional while also discussing his own form. “Khushdil Shah deserves to be recognized as the Player of the Match. Outstanding work by Khushdil in finishing. You have to go for the kill to put less of a burden on the players who are finishing,” Babar said..

“I always make it a point to keep improving my game and focusing on my strong points. There was an issue during the part of the calling when Imam and I were batting together. But as time went on, we found that we worked better together. The wicket was a little double-paced and wasn’t all that simple to get through. Even if it was hot, it is not an acceptable explanation. All of the credit goes to the bowlers. Shadab came back and performed well. Furthermore, the standards that he establishes on the playing field are outstanding. Cricket is undergoing a transition. We need to put a lot of thought into our strategy and play with a lot of energy,” Babar added.
