Virat’s gift to Babar
Indian superstar Virat Kohli gifted his signed jersey to Babar Azam after the spectacular victory against Pakistan in the ODI World Cup-2023. This video related to Kohli quickly went viral on social media. Indian fans are also praising Kohli for this. However, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram did not like this. Akram looked angry as to why Babar Azam took the jersey as a gift from Kohli despite losing the match to India.
‘Babar should not have taken gift’
A fan asked a question on this to Wasim Akram, who was part of the cricket expert panel in a Pakistani TV show. That fan asked, ‘I saw that Babar Azam got 2 t-shirts from Virat. This video is being shown continuously on TV channels. All I want to ask is that when you lost the match in such a disappointing manner and the fans of Pakistan are sad because of it, then Babar should not have taken the jersey from Virat in front of everyone. Wasim Akram said in response to this, ‘Today was not the day that after losing a big match, you get a jersey gift like this in front of everyone. When I saw this, I said the same thing… If you wanted to do this and your uncle’s son had asked you to bring Kohli’s T-shirt, then you could have done it by going to the dressing room after the match. This should not have been done in public.
Pakistan suffered a crushing defeat
